Purple Rain (1984)
I think the music is okay but I can't understand why this movie has any appeal outside of that.

As likable as Gene Wilder is it's tough to really enjoy this silly chauvinistic slapstick schtick.

Not in the Airplane humor territory but still plenty of spoofing laughs to be had.

Scared the hell out of me, but not in the way I'm sure it was intended. They may have made a valid effort to repeat the "2001" Kubrick masterpiece; but it didn't come close.
