A European version exists, and is a different cut from the American version. The following changes were made to the European version:
Some of the dialogue and text in this version is different.
The opening narration is now done by a British narrator, with the opening text superimposed on a black screen as opposed to a blue screen.
The prologue, which includes John saying that he wants to see Mickey Mouse is omitted.
The opening theme song is "My Bonnie" instead of "She Loves You".
A scene in an art school with a naked woman is included.
The scenes where The Beatles perform at Der Kaiserkiller are longer. They also include two additional song scenes: "Kansas City" and "Shake, Rattle and Roll" (the former has them trip on the stage floor, while the latter has them break it).
The scene where they find Stuart badly beaten has extra dialogue.
The scene where Stuart and Astrid have their moment in bed together is different. The other version has him showing her her new necklace, while this version, has the two of them making love to each other.
John's bedroom scene with Stuart has extra shots of the others in bed.
The scene where they first talk to Brian Epstein is a little bit longer.
The scene where Brian goes to find The Beatles performing "Love Me Do" at a venue is longer.
The scene where Brian goes to tell the Beatles about George Martin and EMI, has him getting out of a taxi.
In the scene where Cynthia tell John about expecting a baby, John asks her "What are we gonna call him?"
The scene where the Beatles arrive at New York City is longer.
The end credits feature "She Loves You", instead of "My Bonnie".
For the knowledgeable Beatles fan, the main value in this movie is to just sit back and pick out the flaws, inaccuracies, combined events, omitted events, wildly exaggerated events, omitted people, timeline errors, mis-attribute quotes, incorrect clothing, out of place songs, and (shame shame) incorrect instruments and other boners I just cant think of right now. The flaws come fast and furious so you'll have to be on your toes.
I didn't give this a "1" primarily due the fact that it is filmed in Liverpool and the actors (the band Rain) give it their all (the Lennon character is credible and does a good job). Also, the song "Cry for a Shadow" is heard at one point and THAT counts for SOMETHING.
So,,, watch it for fun, but please don't take it as historically accurate.
