Purple Rain

Purple Rain (1984)

5 corrected entries

Corrected entry: Just before looking at the guitar in the window, Prince takes an item from Apollonia and asks who gave it to her. There is no answer, but he says she's lying.

Correction: Actually when Prince asks her who gave it to her she says, "A person". He then asks if they were male or female and she then says, "Huh?". I have the DVD and have never had a problem hearing her answers. I even put the subtitles on to be sure of what she says.

Corrected entry: When The Kid first sees Apollonia, he walks around a corner and the post-it board is to his left. The camera moves quickly to the right to show that he's looking at her and you don't see the waitress standing between them. The camera angle changes and the waitress in now seen standing between them.

Correction: If the scene is watched frame by frame you can see the waitress between the The Kid and Apollonia. The pan was so quick, you don't see her.

Corrected entry: When they remove Kid's father from the basement to rush him to the hospital they lift him off the ground on a stretcher and you can see that there are no markings on the floor. As Kid is thinking about what happened, he looks at the floor and you now see a tape outline of a body on the floor.

Correction: The way I interpret this scene, which is mentioned twice in the mistakes section, is that even though his father didn't succeed in killing himself, maybe The Kid was "wishful thinking" his father had died.

Packergirl

Corrected entry: Prince comes back inside First Avenue backstage after singing "Purple Rain" and gives Apollonia a kiss. Moments later she's placed in the middle of the crowd.

Correction: That was not Apollonia. He kissed the girl that works at the club. The woman that he kisses has blond hair, Apollonia's hair is black.

Corrected entry: Right before The Kid knocks down Morris in the alley with his motorcycle, he is seen driving through the alley and you can plainly see that the driver of the motorcycle is white.

MCKD

Correction: Well, Prince is fairly light skinned. In certain lighting he could be mistaken for a white guy. Prince is an avid motorcyclist so he probably did the riding secenes himself.

Quotes

Apollonia: Will you help me?
The Kid: No.
Apollonia: Pardon me?
The Kid: Nope... Wanna know why?
Apollonia: Nope.
The Kid: Because you wouldn't pass the initiation.
Apollonia: What initiation?
The Kid: Well, for starters, you have to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.
Apollonia: What?
The Kid: You have to purify yourself in Lake Minnetonka.
[She strips down, and runs towards the lake.]
The Kid: Hey! Wait a minute! That's...
[She jumps in. She gets out shivering.]
The Kid: Uh, hold it...
Apollonia: What?
The Kid: That ain't Lake Minnetonka.

Mistakes

Apollonia jumps into the lake. She is soaking wet, naturally. However, soon after, she's riding on the back of Prince's motorcycle and her hair is completely dry.
