The film that helped establish Prince's public persona comes to DVD with this lackluster release from Warner Bros. The transfer is a standard, full-frame 1.33:1 image. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack is recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include production notes and theatrical trailers. The best aspect of this disc is the sound, which was also the best aspect of the movie. Considering Prince's stature as one of the superstars of the last 20 years, one wonders if a special edition release of this film on DVD might be in the works
