I want to know who was the person behind morris (in the mirror in the opening sequence) that seems to duck out of the shot?

No one is coming for your abortion: they just want common-sense abortion regulations: background checks, waiting periods, lifetime limits, take a class, and a small tax.

I think it's assumed that that tape that they let Jill listen to, and make sure she gets it to the Kid and he play it on piano after his father suicide attempt is the song

I can see Lisa & Wendy knowing th chords

There probably should have been some kind of band scene where they are all rehearsing it without the Kid

Funny though, Prince has been doing that kind of stuff in his live shows or moreso the aftershows

like during the Lovesexy aftershow where he introduces Rave and and a few other songs like he just made it up right there

I thought prince did walk in on wendy and lisa and the band working on their own tunes .. then they broke into lets go crazy to please him. I think it is suggested that the tape prince rewound a few times to get the chord may have had a full work up of the song and prince wrote his words around the structure of the song on the tape already. Therefore .. implied is that they rehearse their own stuff without prince .. and prince had access to a full work up of the song .. so imediately upon Prince announcing that it was a wendy lisa song they knew what he wanted to play.

If Billy wanted something "commercial, something that would work every night" wouldn't it make more sense for him to let Dez's group go?

I definitely didn't want to be a mountainair or whatever it was that they were singing about!

Oh Lawd! I understand that The Kid's antics may be bad for business, but dude dancing like that has to be just as bad!!!

I bet he was better than Prince and his monosyllabic speech and tone.

Hell..when he came late to the rehearsal and he asked where the girls were and Mark looked at his watch? lmao that was his "nikka please" moment.

It reminds me of that voice he does in the Prince of Paisley Park thing when he goes something like "trying to make fun of me eh?" It's like his white and nerdy voice he does on record sometimes (Bob George cops, Family Name politicians) lol

⇑⇓
Continuity: The Kid receives a white guitar from Appolonia placing it in his lap. They kiss. His arms are still placed on the guitar. She tells him that she is going to join Morris's group. As he jumps up and slaps her in the face, the guitar is gone.
Edit Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: When The Kid goes home and sees his mother's crying in the front yard it is daytime. He immediately goes inside to confront his dad and the windows show that it is now night.
Edit
⇑⇓
Continuity: When the woman confronts Morris and Jerome on the street about how long she waited the night before for Morris, she first appears without an over the shoulder pocketbook. The camera angle changes and you can see the strap on her shoulder. The camera angle changes again and the strap is gone.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: When The Kid goes home after playing at the club, he arrives home without his guitar that he left the house with, and the guitar is seen inside the house later on.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: When the waitress posts Apollonia's card on the board, the large white folded paper that was seen on the board in the previous shot of The Kid seeing her for the first time is no longer there.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: Right after The Kid rescues Apollonia from Morris in the alley, he drives her to a secluded area where the makeup on her face is now brighter and heavier than it was in the alley.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: When Morris first meets Apollonia he sits at her table and if you notice the straw in her drink, it changes positions during the entire scene and she never touches it.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Continuity: When The Kid Looks at Apollonia's card that the waitress is holding, it states that she is 5'7" and her weight is also filled out. Later when he looks at the card when it's posted on the board it now says 5'6" and her weight is not there.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Visible crew/equipment: When Morris turns to face the mirror to see what the suit that he is holding will look like pressed against him, as soon as he turns and faces the mirror, look at the right side of the mirror where the edge of the open door is, you can see a crew member with the white baseball cap ducking behind the door trying to stay out of the shot.
Edit Submitted by MCKD Time
⇑⇓
Other: When Apollonia is smacked in the face by the Kid after announcing she's joining Morris's group, she falls into a dresser and knocks all the magazines off the top of the dresser on to the floor. When the same scene is replayed during the 'When Doves Cry' sequence, the magazines don't fall to the floor.

Continuity: When The Kid knocks Morris into the pile of boxes in the alley, you can see that the stunt double taking the fall is white, and when he lands in the pile of boxes he is seen in the next camera angle laying on a different set of boxes.
