Trivia

This is basically the same as 'The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash' mockumentary (set out in the same chronological order) with a few new interviews and a few clips and scenes that were cut from the first movie, such as the Nasty "give peas a chance" gag and many more gay jokes which may have been deemed as too risqué back in the 1970s and are basically schoolboy-level humour.

I borrowed it from our local library, yet I feel ripped off!
26 May 2007 | by mjs_imdbSee all my reviews

Very disappointing. My time would've been better spent watching the first movie and some clips of Rutles cover bands on the Internet.

I'm a big Rutles fan. The original movie was great. If you didn't see it, a lot of it is in this pathetic excuse of a movie.

It starts out alright but the viewer quickly realizes there's little new here. The SNL influence is felt when you hear the Nth joke about their trousers; repetition does *not* equal funny, gang. At the end of the film, they show some outtakes of actors laughing. One of my boys wondered what movie they were watching.

Some of the interviews were slightly funny, but wouldn't be again if someone held a gun to my head and made me watch this a second time.

At least it's short.
