As good as it gets
22 January 2008 | by (Blackpool England) – See all my reviews

In this the first and last Gerry & the Pacemakers film you get the impression that Cilla Black is the biggest star of the day when Gerry informs his aunt he's reading her biog.So why is she at a talent contest-and singing a ballad as well when its supposed to be a Big Beat Contest. The trouble is the scriptwriters sometimes don't use logic or throw in contradictions. The music was the main thing though so it worked as a series of cameos. Being shot on location in Liverpool was a good idea It also seemed rather pointless to turn the run to the airport into a silent film from the 20s.Which is why this review loses 2 stars
