Storyline

In this purely fictional story, Paul McCartney drops by The Dakota to visit John Lennon in 1976. Paul is still on top of the music world, reaching #1 with his new band, Wings. John, however, has retired from public life, choosing to raise his son, Sean. Rumors are rampant that The Beatles are going to reunite to play a concert. Paul, the consummate entertainer, is intrigued by the possibilities. But John, still fighting his inner demons, is content keeping Beatlemania a thing of the past. But even though the two men are still at odds over the band, they rediscover that they still have bonds from the past that will never go away. Written by jgp3553@yahoo.com

Trivia

When John Lennon offers Paul McCartney the chocolate, he says "Take this, brother. May it serve you well." This is a direct quote of a line Lennon spoke in the background to the song "Revolution 9" and in the scene, it is meant to be a joke between the two. See more »

Goofs

The movie begins with a message that the meeting it is dramatizing between John and Paul took place in April 1976 but when they got out into Central Park the leaves on the trees are yellow and the fact that there are yellow/brown leaves all over the ground indicate it would actually be late Sept or early Oct.

Quotes

John Lennon: You're getting old, mate.
Paul McCartney: Speak for yourself, dad. I've still got me pretty face, you see?
John Lennon: That you have.

A very nice surprise, with solid writing...
4 February 2000 | by (Orchard Park, NY) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't have expected most musicians or Beatles fans to like this film, what with our expectations and a feeling like we own our image of them in some personal sense, but I'm glad that many here did, because I think it is an excellent character study, regardless of whether it happened or not. And I think that especially for the general public, who may not have known much about John and Paul, at least outside of the Beatles, it gave an interesting portrayal of them as the remarkable people they were (and are, in Paul's case), both in good and bad ways, and accurately expressed some of the dynamic that they had between them, both in terms of friendship and conflict. Not that any of it was specifically accurate or would have happened that way, necessarily, but I think the dynamic itself was accurate, at least in terms of the mythology and perception we've gleaned from what we know about them and how they felt about eachother.

The only things I didn't like were parts of the rooftop scene, which kind of made Paul into a pseudo-saviour for John, although in terms of trying to instill some dramatics into the show, that was probably a valid device (John clearly had more demons and things unresolved in his life than Paul), and the scene of them in the park, which just seemed pointless. However, as they were walking into the park, there was a great line, where some guy asks John for change to help 'save the seals', and John says "I don't think they'd listen". I don't know if Lennon ever said that, but you've gotta admit, that's a great Lennon-esque line, and indicative of the sharp writing in this film...
