Under the Cherry Moon Reviews

June 24, 2006
Shot in black-and-white in an attempt to evoke the sophisticated burr of '40s films, its intent is hamstrung by over-familiar gags, though the script comes more to life when Prince and Benton lapse into black street talk.

The soundtrack - which is among the star's best work - is reduced to the level of background music. It's a vanity venture, not even worth watching for kitsch value.

Makes you forget how good "Purple Rain" is.

All these years later I'm still kinda stunned that someone let PRINCE direct his own movie.

As flat and uninteresting as a newsreel from the 1930s about vacationing in the south of France.

A colossal bore.

Prince should stick to what he calls singing, because he can't act.

Like Elvis Presley, Prince has the charisma to carry an atrocious movie-real fans just want to see him-but even Elvis never got so carried away with himself that he thought he could direct.

For all those out there who can't get enough of Prince, Under the Cherry Moon may be just the antidote.

Just buy the soundtrack. The movie's an embarrasment.

The final stretch is grueling, but the majority is average rather than awful.

a few good tunes, but how self-adoring can a star be?

[A] faux-'30s goof about an impish gigolo who woos and abuses a rich debutante.

[An] absurdly bad movie.

In Under the Cherry Moon, the self-styled auteur is obviously aiming for a romantic tragedy with occasional lighthearted moments. What he ends up with, however, is purest camp.
