Rarely shows up these days
23 March 2003 | by BruceCorneilSee all my reviews

Another '60s pop flick that followed in the wake of the Beatle's "Hard Day's Night".

Shot on location in Liverpool. Entertaining enough in its own way. Looks like it contains some genuine concert footage and there are a number of guest appearances by some of the big name "Merseybeat" stars of the era. Lots of toe tappers throughout and, of course, there's that wonderful theme song.

Marsden and Co. handled comedy with a certain breezy efficiency as did the Fab Four and the Monkees which is more than you can say for today's tedious collection of mumbling, rude and generally unlikable pop and rock stars.

Rarely shows up on television these days but worth watching out for.
