Critic Reviews of "Under the Cherry Moon"Washington PostApril 22, 2016
Cherry Moon had some potential as a cultish Trading Places. But it drowns in its pretenses. No doubt, Prince fancies himself an auteur in his directing debut. But he has no restraint, no true vision. It's as if we've all been mooned.Philadelphia InquirerApril 22, 2016
In Under the Cherry Moon, Prince does more for movie musicals than any performer since Frank Sinatra and more for bared midriffs than any sex symbol since Little Egypt. Forgive me, Madonna, but it's true.Orlando SentinelApril 22, 2016
In Under the Cherry Moon, the self-styled auteur is obviously aiming for a romantic tragedy with occasional lighthearted moments. What he ends up with, however, is purest camp.Chicago TribuneJanuary 16, 2013
[An] absurdly bad movie.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
[A] faux-'30s goof about an impish gigolo who woos and abuses a rich debutante.VarietyJanuary 15, 2008
As flat and uninteresting as a newsreel from the 1930s about vacationing in the south of France.Brooklyn MagazineApril 26, 2016
An inspired, delightful piece of cinema-pure cloudcuckooland escapism, and very much of a piece with Prince's genius.Philadelphia Daily NewsApril 22, 2016
Word leaked out a few weeks ago that Under the Cherry Moon was something of a stinker. Horsefeathers! It's unique, by far the boldest film of the summer.People MagazineApril 22, 2016
Like Elvis Presley, Prince has the charisma to carry an atrocious movie-real fans just want to see him-but even Elvis never got so carried away with himself that he thought he could direct.South Florida Sun-SentinelApril 22, 2016
The music is great, the direction fast-paced, the whole film a lot of fun.
