Let me start off by saying, at one point in my life, I was the biggest Prince fan on the planet. So anything Prince said, did, etc..., made sense to me, in short I got it.
One should be a die-hard fan in order to understand this movie, and which could of been so much better still given the "storyline", but due to pressure from WB, and Prince's need for control, this movie is really nothing more than a 91 minute music video.
Granted, I like the songs, but if I wanted to watch a music video, I would turn on MTV. (Heck, MTV isn't music television anymore either, lol.)

Lay down your funky weapons ...

GRAFFITI BRIDGE was originally conceived as a movie for Kim Basinger and Prince, but they broke up before it went into production. Then Prince thought he would make a movie centered on THE TIME, but Warner Brothers demanded that it be a sequel to PURPLE RAIN. They filmed it all on sets to avoid the Minnesota weather, and also because Prince wanted to create a true 1950s musical feeling. It's about the Kid and Morris squaring off against each other on how a club they share ownership should be run. A mysterious woman enters both their lives (Aura - Ingrid Chavez), and she becomes the catalyst for them to both change in spiritual ways.

The DVD is fine - almost a direct port of the laserdisc print. It's a little grainy at times, and sometimes the soundtrack seems off ... but overall you get a nice package with the movie and the music videos. Watch GRAFFITI BRIDGE for the music scenes first and foremost -- that's where all the passion is."
Worth a look

"Not quite PURPLE RAIN, but noteworthy to devotees like myself. The soundtrack is 60% flawless and the re-appearance of Morris Day and the Time, and Jill Jones made me so happy. And Tevin Campbell and Mavis Staples...totally worth a golden Sunday afternoon's viewing despite all of the eggs and tomatoes thrown at it..."
Be a Prince Fan Before You Watch this

"This is a great video, although you need to watch it at least twice to understand Prince's message. As the unofficial sequel to Purple Rain, it has many flaws, namely poor sound quality on the soundtrack, and a few annoying spiritual overtones. Obviously inspired much by John Lennon, with a Yoko Ono personality who plays Prince's "girl", this movie is a MUST for Prince fans. The soundtrack is brilliant, so get the cd if nothing else. The plot is quite simple, but is made unneccarily complicated at times. If you liked Purple Rain, you must get this video, but be sure to see Purple Rain first!"
