Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's probably best to think of the film as an extended music video, a watershed moment for movie sound tracks, and not much more.
Fresh: Purple Rain's gazillion-selling soundtrack album has more or less eclipsed the film in pop culture history books.
Purify Yourself In Lake Minatonka
Classic 80s flick. Classic performances from Prince & The Revolution and The Time. If you've never seen this, you need to stop everything you are doing and rent it/watch it *right now*
This is a great movie from the 80's. But.....what? Is iTunes only going to allow us to rent movies now? I see no new movies to buy. I think they should give you the option....rent or buy. Anyway, good flick.
I love this movie but don't feel it is worth renting. I would rather buy and watch it over and over; afterall most everyone has already seen this movie. I think iTunes is going to lose business over only renting these older movies; I know I am getting irritated when I see a movie I really like and find it only available to rent. I am finding that I don't like the lack of options and I love iTunes.
