Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all those out there who can't get enough of Prince, Under the Cherry Moon may be just the antidote.
Rotten: [A] faux-'30s goof about an impish gigolo who woos and abuses a rich debutante.
Rotten: As flat and uninteresting as a newsreel from the 1930s about vacationing in the south of France.
Rotten: [An] absurdly bad movie.
You really have look at this movie for the time that is was created. Its a simple movie for a simpler time. Prince made music that crossed all color and sex lines and created a sexual revolution along with Madonna. It wasn't a black movie or a main stream flick. It was not made with a big budget or have a large amount of violence, profanity or special effects. This movie mixed old power ideas with love (and scandal to make it interesting) to create a well enjoyable movie. The issue here is that it does not FIT in any category we have today: drama, comedy, romantic comedy, blah, blah, blah. It was a unique blend of his imagination just as his music. Is Prince the villain or the hero, does he get the girl or the shaft? Can he finally love or will he travel through women forever? Thats what it was about in my eyes. A classic for those who do enjoy a plot and character development of that time.

As Prince's follow-up movie to Purple Rain, the expectations were really high for him to deliver, especially as the director this time. But Under the Cherry Moon is nothing like Purple Rain, for one his character actually has a name. Under the Cherry Moon is a captivating love story that contains the theme of love between the classes. The humor, love triangles, and wit of this story is not only well demonstrated through the plot and actors, but in the soundtrack as well.
