I watched "Under the Cherry Moon" this past weekend for the first ever, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm surprised it has such bad reviews and was awarded with those Razzie's:

1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Director: Prince
1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Supporting Actor: Jerome Benton
1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Picture
1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Actor: Prince
1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Screenplay nominee
1987 Razzie Awards: Worst Supporting Actress nominee: Kristin Scott Thomas

I guess at the time most people wanted Prince to come out with a sequel to "Purple Rain." Prince trades in his Purple Rain character (The kid) to take on Christopher Tracy, a gigolo fresh from Miami who is scoping out the women of France, young and old alike, in search of much needed cash to pay his rent along with whatever else money can buy. He is accompanied by his sidekick, Tricky (Jerome Benton), who keeps him on his toes and his head of the clouds. Mary (Kristin Scott Thomas first starring role) is a stubborn, spoiled 21 year old brat who although may come off as a bit brazen at first, is really a frigid virgin who is not ready for the likes of Christopher when he shows up uninvited to her 21st birthday party. Opposites attract they find themselves becoming attracted to qualities they can't seem to find in anybody else.

This film has a surprise ending which took me off guard. This directorial; debut from Prince was quite impressive. His boyish antics and humor make for some charming entertainment. Though beset with many problems, ranging from period setting (are we in the 1940s or were vintage fashions suddenly the rage in '80's era France for about a month and Vogue didn't catch wind of it?

So "Under the Cherry Moon" is a sinfully self-indulgent movie built around a self-indulgent, narcissistic but supremely talented and charismatic star. That being said, it's a thoroughly enjoyable movie, particularly for loyal Prince fans like myself.
The cinematography of this movie is more beautiful with each viewing. It's also very funny (most times, where it's supposed to be). Prince and Jerome Benton have very good comic timing at certain spots, and some great lines emerge (who didn't laugh when Tricky said he'd "slap the waves" out Chris' head?).
Prince and Kristin Scott-Thomas do have decent chemistry. Scott-Thomas does her best with a limited role, and she demonstrates the appeal that led to better roles down the line. The movie only lags when it tries to get too serious, but it has always been an overall delight.
Last, but certainly not least, the score and the soundtrack are incredible. The soundtrack, "Parade," is a groundbreaking (albeit underappreciated) LP of avant-garde funk, and provides the thematic backbone for the movie.
This movie should be even more enjoyable in widescreen format on DVD.

When this movie first came out I was about 9 years old and I went to see this movie with my mother and father at the drive-in movies. I have always thought that Prince and Jerome from the time was sexy to me. I know that is something that any little girl should think of at that age but that's how I felt. This movie is romantic and very powerful. I just wish that they bring this movie back on television or in stores so everyone like me who love Prince can buy this movie.

I first saw this movie at the age of 11 back in '86 so some of the jokes were over my head. But as an adult I love this movie. It is clever! It is sexy! It is cute! It is funny! And the music is all too....groovy! This movie gives a glimpse into Prince's personality that shines when he is on stage; grant it the only time we see Prince is if he is performing. Therefore I say give this movie a chance as to see what is inside this quiet man. I think anybody who likes to see funny, sexy, cute, and clever movies would enjoy this movie. If you are not a fan you may become one. Just bare in mind this movie was made in the 80's.

I love this movie, but then I love Prince. If you don't, then you may find this movie silly and perhaps amateurish. It certainly isn't "Purple Rain." But, the b&w photography is beautiful and so are the locations. I believe this is also Kristin Scott Thomas' first movie and she is very good. Francesca Annis is also wonderful. Prince and Jerome Benton are very funny together and have great chemistry. Unfortunately, Prince looks funny running in high heeled boots, too. (Sorry, but that had to be said.) Anyway, there are much worse movies you could watch so give it a try, if only for the music! (Sometimes it Snows in April is such a sadly unrecognized song! But he is singing it as part of the Musicology tour.) Prince 4ever!
