1984 Certificate: 15


Dig if you will the picture - pop king Prince makes his movie debut in this autobiographical tale of a young Minneapolis musician struggling to take his band to the big time. Ably backed up by his real group The Revolution and pneumatic love interest-cum-protegee Apollonia, the pocket sex bomb duly rocks the joint to one of the biggest soundtracks of all time. Yet while Prince takes the musical plaudits (and an Oscar for the title song), it's the flamboyant Morris Day and his rival outfit The Time who steal the comedy show.
