The cutes/funniest Prince reference/mention in a 'movie?

I don't know if I'm the only one here but I JUST LUV IT when somebody 'mention' Prince in some movie.

Just like Pretty Woman;). Julia was singing along wit the brotha on 'KISS' while she's taking a bath. Gere was looking at her funny. When she noticed him, she sighed and went like :Don't you just
LOVE Prince??? And Gere said: MORE THAN LIFE!!

Man I screamed like a freaking wich when I saw that LOL biggrin. That Coming from a woman I trully love(Julia) to another Person I ADORE(Prince) is mighty funky!!!

I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF, moreso than anyone else in the theatre at the Prince scene in Scary Movie. I'm sorry if it offended anyone, but that was some funny shit!

Just for obscurity sake I like the reference in the movie "Unbreakable" when Robin Wright Penn tells Bruce Willis that her favorite song is "Soft and Wet by the Artist Formerly Known as Prince".

I'm imagining 99% of the people who saw this movie had never of "Soft and Wet".

For humor sake I like the reference in "The Last Boyscout" when Bruce Willis (again) tells Damon Wayans that his daughter hates him, but "loves Prince" and then Wayans says, "I like Prince" and does a girlish Prince scream. Too funny.

Not actually spoken, but 4 those of u who can remember the movie "The Breakfast Club" with the "brat pack" back in the 80's...Ally Sheedy's character is spending some of her detention time looking at the double album "1999".

I always thought that was a cool reference 2 Prince.

In "Sixteen Candles" as Molly Ringwald is getting on the bus the band "geeks" are playing "1999". I guess John must have liked that album.


Edited for grammar.

Not direct, but:

In "Risky Business", DMSR gets played during the hooker party...lol

In "Waiting To Exhale", during the club scene "Head" gets played, and Loretta Devine's reaction to hearing it seems so damn authentic, it's scary..lol

In a scene from "Weird Science" when they're getting ready for the big party, "Private Joy" is playing in the background. Not the "cutest/funniest" ever, but worth a mention.

Don't forget Demi Moore dancing to If I Was Your Girlfriend for Burt Reynolds in Striptease...

FYI, I loved that part in Unbreakable, thought it was so crazy. What was even better was that they didn't pick an extremely well-known P song for it, like When Doves Cry, 1999, or Purple Rain...
I mean, like, where is the sun?

I remember when I was about 11 and being the only person I knew (apart from like, my mum) and watching the Goonies with some friends. All the way through this film Cory Feldman (Ithink that is his name) is wearing a Purple Rain T-shirt. Although there was no spoken reference to Prince-I was sure that my friends would finally accept that it was cool that I liked Prince lol

Speaking of T-shirts/Posters,,

I suppose you've seen the movie 'Romeo must die' starring Aaliyah+Jet Li. The scene when the big brotha entered Trish's(Aaliyah) room and saw Purple Rain's big poster on the wall. He went like: Ahh Prince 'princely scream wink' you're freak too Trish. Everybody in the theatre laughed their asses
