Love Purple Rain. The acting is very bad in most parts but Prince gives a great performance. Watch this movie for the music and great performances by Prince and the Revolution.

Purple Rain the movie is really bad. There is no sense in sitting through such garbage to listen to the music by Prince. The movie was difficult to sit through. I gave it about 50 minutes before I shut her down. The scenes were horrible. ThePurple Rain the movie is really bad.

They really should have re released the cut which was shown in theaters. So much was cut out of the DVD version including the fight with Jellybean and the death at the end. Prince can work with a good director and could have done many more movies.

A musical that plays too much of a musical instead of a movie. With Purple Rain, it should've been a musical in a musical theatre that are playing musicals where there's one that's actually close to you.

10 for the music and the performance scenes......anytime Prince is on stage and playing, it is going to be great. The acting on the other hand???? That's gets a 1. I have no idea how some of the acting made it past the editing room. They10 for the music and the performance scenes......anytime Prince is on stage and playing, it is going to be great.

LOL! Expand
