New York Times - 11/03/1990
"...The sunniness of an old back-lot musical and the cutting edge of contemporary cool....A lively style, a galvanizing score and some dance numbers in which the star truly shines..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/05/1990
"...It's full of Grade-A rock 'n' roll, rousingly well performed. It moves, it swings, it jumps and vibrates..."
Prince returns as the kid, locked in a power struggle over the Glam Slam, a prime-location nightclub he co-owns with Day. Their ongoing battle for control inspires a potent tale of goodness vs. greed and the redemptive power of love and self-expression, as well as a succession of roof-raising musical numbers.
Unofficial sequel to "Purple Rain" about a pair of nightclub owners who split over the musical direction of their club. One believes they should program only the most commercially viable music, while the other pursues his artistic vision with no concern for monetary gain. Their antagonism becomes even more intense when they both fall for the same woman.
