The story, co-written by one-time Starsky & Hutch scripter William Blinn, maybe a somewhat hackneyed tale with His Purpleness overcoming a troubled background and musical rival Morris Day to achieve his dreams of rock stardom. However, the cast, which also includes Prince protege Apollonia, rises above the cliches to hand in a set of performances which, while never likely to trouble the Oscars, prove that all concerned can at least play a rough approximation of themselves with minimal difficulty.
What really helped push the film's box-office receipts through the roof, however, was its soundtrack featuring a clutch of hit singles--notably "When Doves Cry"--and which cemented our pint-sized hero's position as one of the globe's premier performing artists. Sadly, subsequent attempts to re-bottle this particular brand of lightning with Under a Cherry Moon and Graffiti Moon would prove substantially less successful but Purple Rain still looks--and, more importantly, sounds--rarely less than funktastic. --Clark Collis

Stranger Things: Erica Sinclair Funko 65634 Pop! Vinyl
My little daughter , who is 2 years old as well as 9 year old son are having so much fun playing together with All Around Peppa Town. The delivery came super fast. It was well packed. It did not have any batteries so we had to put them in order for the car to play sounds. The most playable part of it is the swing.
The price was so much cheaper than in any other web site.
My son absolutely loved this, and great service.
Brilliant as always
