Not the film I was expecting, sure. I'm been hypothesizing about watching this film for years. If you'll love Beatle songs, and 4 actors, unknowns, who sound just like em', with varying of look of familiarity to George, Paul, Ringo and John, this film will go down well. Though it's far from a masterpiece, we go back in that time machine, and relive the 60's again. with Beatle songs, fitting scenes of old footage, 2 clips involving a bit of blood. The subtle mischievous comedy angle here, has televised messages of incidents, events, moving across the top of the screen, where a little bit of old 60's footage, is playfully funny. Some war footage, conjures up moments in Dear America. With all this said, this movie amazingly works, and we sometimes forget, we're not actually listening to The Beatles. The music does fill our hearts with warmth and amazing feeling. If you're a dedicated Beatle lover, you can't let this past. The music and the concert footage, will fill your memory, in the days after. I tried to spot a 10 year old Kelly Bundy a couple of times, and I'm pretty sure, I caught her in one short shot.
