I wish being in a band really was like that.
it was ace, along with the black american pop show after. i spent friday night dancing on my sofa haha
it's like the most awful film ever. Terrible acting all over.
The music was good though (obvs).
but it got to the bit where Prince and the pretty lady whose name escapes me were by the lake, and Prince was like, "strip, ho!" or something, and all her clothes fell off.
It's hilarious! I love the half arsed attempt at creating this rivalry between the two bands who always play at the venue. Also the moments where part of the song Purple Rain would be being written and suddenly people would stop and notice. Great overacting all round, definitely crosses the line of so bad it's good.
and it's very hard to do a convincing drama about being in a band without an element of pisstake, irony etc. as such it's one of a small handful that manages it at all. besides which it's pretty much the best soundtrack ever.
is whenever anyone else is looking towards the stage (all serious).
