Summer Blockbuster!?! | Episode 115: Under the Cherry Moon

Episode Description: This week, Summer Blockbuster!?! celebrates Valentine’s Day by taking on one of the least romantic romances ever filmed: 1986’s Under the Cherry Moon, directed by Prince. The pop icon followed up his smash hit Purple Rain with a black-and-white homage to screwball comedies that plays like a giant middle finger to critics and fans alike. Those expecting musical performances should look elsewhere, as this movie is far more concerned with its unlikeable leads trading lame barbs. Naturally, co-host Luke loved it. He truly has no shame.
