Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie is a mixed bag. The overall story line is paper thin and exists only to move the film from one Beatles cover to the next. The movie basically boils down to a series of music videos featuring reimagined versions of classic Beatles songs. Some of those new versions are really, really bad; yet others are genuinely terrific — so good that I admit I purchased the soundtrack. The movie goes back and forth from awful to awesome multiple times.
Final Grade: C
