Review of Under the Cherry Moon

N France, Christopher (Prince) & his cousin Tricky (Jerome Benton) R gigolos who hear about a trust fund from a wealthy heiress Mary Sharon (Kristin Scott Thomas) & attract 2 her. Christopher & Mary eventually fall N love, leaving behind Tricky, who, N quarreling with envy, spills the beans about his cousin’s real intentions. Meanwhile, Mary’s parents disapprove of her new lover & want her 2 B with her fiancé N New York. Like many Prince music videos, Under the Cherry Moon has a lot of style, paying tribute to 1930’s cinema with a black-&-white filter & a screwball premise, but the movie’s plot has 2 many holes. 1st, why do these 2 low privilege guys travel 2 the Riviera 2 woo all these socialites, even though they don’t speak French & probably have super-rich housewives N America? 2nd, wouldn’t the plot B more interesting if Mary was the manipulator trying 2 steal Christopher’s property & money? 3rd, if Chris & Tricky R so desperately 4 money, then how did they fly from United States 2 France with low income? Finally, why does Isaac have hired goons? He’s not a Bond movie villain with world domination N his mind, he’s a regular person who throws dinner parties & worships his wealthy family, like most millionaire stereotypes. While it has a great soundtrack by Prince, Under the Cherry Moon is 1 example of style-over-substance.
