  • Not exactly the best finale for what is supposed to be a romantic comedy
  • For somebody who has had no previous experience as a director, though, I think Prince did a fairly decent job with Under the Cherry Moon

      Prince is one of the most multi-talented performers in the world. Acting, however, is not one of his strongest points. However, as Hollywood history proves, an actor doesn’t particularly have to be all that talented, if audiences like him.

      “Under the Cherry Moon” was supposed to be a follow-up to Prince’s first film “Purple Rain”, which was a huge box office success. In spite of some


      critics disparaging it, that movie only solidified Prince’s popularity. Obviously hoping to duplicate its success, Prince decided to plunge into anther project, “Under the Cherry Moon.”

      This film was a big flop at the box office and a lot of critics absolutely loathed it, but it wasn’t as abysmally awful as some have indicated.

      Prince plays the role of Christopher Tracy, an egotistical American musician/ gigolo who likes to go after rich women for the purposes of tricking them out of their money. He ends up falling in love with a beautiful heiress named Mary Sharon, portrayed by Kristin Scott Thomas, whom he originally plans to sucker in, because of her wealth.. Her rich dad is not overly fond of Christopher and not happy that his daughter his taken up with this obvious opportunist.

      At first, the movie is lighthearted, then it gets way too melodramatic at the end, with Prince’s character getting bumped off. Not exactly the best finale for what is supposed to be a “romantic comedy.”

      Set on the French Riviera, everything is filmed in black and white, probably because the fledgling “director” thought that would make it more stylish. If you haven’t guessed by now, it was

      the tiny one himself who directed “Under the Cherry Moon,” after firing the first director. For somebody who has had no previous experience as a director, though, I think Prince did a fairly decent job with “Under the Cherry Moon.”

      While his acting skills aren’t exactly Oscar-worthy, he is still entertaining and just as cute as a little button.

      While I wouldn’t recommend buying this movie, it might be fun to rent.
