He finds solace in the affections of a lovely young singer, but his first love is making his funky, unique brand of music, which he performs at an ultra-hip Minneapolis nightclub. The Kid must also contend with Morris, his nemesis both in music and romance The popular soundtrack of this highly successful film contains many of Prince's most popular tunes, such as "Let's Go Crazy", "When Doves Cry", and the title song.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...When performing on-stage...[Prince] can be a riveting spectacle..."
    New York Times

    "...An impressive feature film....[The concerts] are splendidly realized musicvid-type affairs, awash in purple-hued smoky lighting atmosphere and right-on camera work..."
    Variety

    "Showcasing the performer at the height of his creative and commercial success....[T]he performances are nothing short of magical."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[T]his 1994 movie brought the liquid-hipped one to middle America, mutating his funk into warped guitar rock."
    Uncut
