I have a very hard time believe that people do not like this movie. The storyline isn't wonderful, but it is passable. You can't watch this movie and expect it to be like an Oscar winner.
You WILL be disappointed.

The music is AMAZING, though, and that is what counts. Not to mention the star studded cast. Earth Wind and Fire, Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees, Aerosmith, and more. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. Any fan of the Beatles or music in general probably feels the same way.
