Reason #1: Under The Cherry Moon

Reason #2: Grafitti Bridge

Stick to albums, O Purple One.

Naw, I'm with Hype...he's got hella personality and humor.  As a personality, he should be in movies.  He may not be the filmmaker he wants to be, but given how many things he does well, that's no sin.  Not like I can make music.

Actually didn't mean that in a pornographic sense.  I meant that Prince could make
a movie of himself doing any ordinary mundane thing and people would probably
find it captivating.   :)

Wouldn't Prince just be wearing the same costumes in each film?
Do you prefer a hero who will confirm your deepest fears? Or a hero who will inspire faith in humanity and goodness?

If there's anything we can be certain of, it's that there will be lots of costume changes.

I'm sure he gets pitches and scripts sent to him all the time.. with the right vehicle, he could be hilarious in comedies.. and I'm sure he could do dramas, too.. heck, make him part of an ensemble cast..
I remember seeing him actually do an interview on the couch with Jay Leno (when Musicology came out), and he was pretty amped.. (mel gibson was there, too.. but nevermind..)

Prince should definitely do more comedy...and concert films...actually every time he does a soundtrack to a movie (remember the Batman soundtrack) he hits mega gold worldwide.

Hmm... 'cause he can't act?  No, wait, that wasn't it... no, sorry... that is it.

Can sing his ass off, is a musical genius, but he can't act. :(
