The Beatles were dissatisfied with this movie, saying that they "felt like extras in [their] own movie". See more »
When Bhuta jumps out of the Good Year blimp to lay the plan to trap the Beatles, there is a wide shot of the stuntman playing Bhuta jumping out of the blimp. Watch the bottom of the screen, and you'll see the stuntman's head bounce back into the frame after landing on an obvious crash mat. So, the blimp wasn't as high in the sky as the filmmakers were trying to make it appear. Afterwards, there is a shot of a horribly fabricated dummy hanging where Bhuta is supposed to be hanging (too skinny, and the arms are too long). See more »

While The Hard Days Night was like a documentary of the life of the Beatles, this movie is more like fictitious life of the Beatles. The reality is substituted with comedy, and although it's great to watch the Beatles in living color, this one isn't as good as their first attempt. The music is still great, but the Beatles are just reduced to ordinary people (if that's ever possible) in this movie. It was better if they portrayed more of their musicianship and told the story as they are it would have been even sweeter. Beatles were part of the '60s (heck, they invented the '60s) and '60s atmosphere is abundant in this movie. It really was a happier time, which makes me wonder why are we not as happy now after 40 years of development ?
