Prince follows his disastrous Under the Cherry Moon with another lame film.

Chicago Tribune

The movie suffers from various technical difficulties -- like choppy editing and songs that get cut off mid-groove -- and in the end everything collapses in a heap.

There is some plot, but it is wispy at best and frequently gets in the way of the music.

With his doe eyes, sensitive face and amazing openness, he might even have the makings of a whole new kind of movie star. But if Prince is ever going to be that, he must find some decent behind-the-camera collaborators.

If, as has been reported, Graffiti Bridge is Prince's homage to the heyday of Hollywood musicals, he should have hired a director who looks at film as more than an extended music video.

Hardcore Prince fans might revel in His Royal Purpleness' muted philisopical musings, but everyone else will likely find this film an overblown bore.

Seattle Times

Technically, the film is a compendium of stale MTV gimmicks -- dry ice, stylized sets. It's a neo-Expressionist tempest in a teapot.

Prince has had his follies, but never has he been associated with an album or film as lackluster as this one.

TV Guide

The music is quite good and will certainly appeal to Prince fans, but it is buried under so much tedious pretention that even the performer's most devoted fans will find it difficult to sit through the film.
