Five of The Beatles' biggest fans in Australia get locked up in the basement of the hotel where the Fab Four are staying during a tour. While waiting for rescue, they start to share their deepest secrets with each other. Written by
Ok drama/comedy about a group of Beatles' maniacs...
1st watched 6/10/2001 - 4 out of 10(Dir-Michael Pattinson): Ok drama/comedy about a group of Beatles' maniacs who get stuck in the basement below where the Beatles are playing live and share their Beatles-focused lives together. One of the people is a closet Beatles fan and doesn't reveal that he really likes them til the end of the movie(Do we care?-- No). This movie goes a lot of different directions(Aka. Sex talk, more sex talk, talk about their lives, talk about the Beatles, music of the Beatles[best part of the movie], talk and more talk). This Australian production seems like it's trying to be like the brat-pack comedy by John Hughes(The Breakfast Club) only their stuck somewhere rather than spending detention together and what they have in common is not each other but their obsession towards the Beatles. Although it follows this formula, the actors are not near as compelling and their life stories are not as interesting. The makers of this movie should have went one direction rather than many and it would have been a much more successful venture in my opinion.
