* {{Expy}}: In 2014 Christopher Kirkley took the ''Purple Rain'' story and migrated it to the West African world.

* FanService: Apollonia sure spends a lot of time underdressed, or in skin-tight leather, or tiny dresses....



* JerkAss: The Kid. Let's see: he treats his band like crap, acts like an asshole to his love interest and generally prances around being an InsufferableGenius. Small wonder people prefer the soundtrack CD...

* TelevisionGeography: A cab ride from the Greyhound Station to the First Avenue nightclub comes to $37.75, when in reality they're across the street from each other. Particularly weird considering Prince, his band members and the director were Minneapolitans.
** Probably an inside joke.
