Storyline

Sir Paul McCartney plays himself in another exaggerated "Day In the Life". Included are fictional scenes of the star preparing to film two videos, rehearsing in a loft, playing for the BBC, and even dreaming up a rather horrific nightmare. A loosely developed plot about missing master tapes ties all of these events together. Written by Ed Chen <echen@bcm.tmc.edu>

Quotes

City Banker: [to Paul] There are other arrangements to be taken into consideration, such as the agreement entered into with Mr. William Rath of Rathbone Industries. In fact, Mr. Rath has asked me to point out to you that unless the tapes are found by midnight tonight, the consequences will be 'very' serious.

ex-Beatle Paul rocks the casbah
16 October 2001 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

Tissue paper thin story used completely as an excuse for Paul and friends to conjure up a series of music videos. And ruddy good tunes they were. Loved watching the band go through several fine songs, many of which I had never before heard. The story had Paul and cohorts searching for a set of missing tapes, leading the viewer through a series of flashbacks and dreamscapes which gave the film a magically mysterious sensation. The picture at times had that 1/2 baked feel I was used to from early Beatle flickers....only this was much, much better. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie: and I really went for the little doodle bug car.
