Underneath the Purple Rain

So I'm in the breakroom here at the office, and Purple Rain is on the TV in there tuned to Bravo. And the question comes to mind: has there been another movie that so completely blended a really terrific soundtrack with such an utterly awful film. Brea is going to mount a defense in the comments, I'm sure, and she's welcome to. But let's be real here, other than Clarence Williams doing an exceptional job as Prince's fruitcake dad, what else is there in this movie to recommend it besides the music and Apollonia's breasts?
