Reviews
Mine: Just really awful.l I like the Bee Gee's but they were an unfortuante choice for this. Really terrible writing and a bad idea to begin with.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Attempt to link songs from The Beatles' classic album into some sort of storyline just doesn't work; sequences range from tolerable to embarrassing. As to The Bee Gees' acting talent, if you can't say something nice... Panavision.

I loved the music and the acting wasn't atrocious like some of the "B" films you see today (Dolf Lundgren and Howie Long and Brian Bosworth) or at least in recent history. I was young when I saw the movie and haven't seen it since but I enjoyed it for my age. The music is the driving force behind the movie and "Strawberry Fields" will always be a favorite in the movie. Steve Martin played his part well. My review might change if seeing the film today but it's nostalgia now and I would like to see it produced in DVD.

I might just be as cheesy as one can be, but I have always loved this movie! Unfortunately, the bad reviews have followed through out the years. People tend to forget that the music is wonderful, the renditions by the artists are great...so the plot is hazy but who cares - it wasn't supposed to be a stellar plot to begin with. The music carries the weight.

I guess I agree with the AIM review. The music is what this movie is really all about. PLOT - non existant other than the typical boy meets-loses-finds girl and saves world in the process. I really think that you have to look beyond all that and enjoy this as a "different" way to do a tribute album, only in video form. God knows so many of the classic albums of our youth are being remixed with covers by a variety of artists. I think this was a really enjoyable way to approach the tribute genre. Besides who can ever forget Billy Preston as Sgt Pepper and how he "ZAPS" everything back to rights in the final scene.

I absolutely loved this movie as a child. Surely can't say much on the acting, but who could ask for better music. It sold the show. I would love a copy in DVD. Anyone know if it has come out in DVD or when it could be expected

I found this movie very interesting. It's as if the whole movie is one big acid trip or something it made me really interested in the lifestyle of the bettles . To make a movie like that you have to be on something so the movie was like a drug itself with it's mixed up story line and Psychedelic way of displaying the music. You had to look much deeper into the movie remember the bettles where music makers and the movie is the way they felt about there music so really if you didn't like the movie you naturally are not a very big bettles fan.

I saw this movie when I was 4 and loved it! I've had the soundtrack on vinyl since. I think this is a cult classic. Like Xanadu or Grease 2. Stupid, yes. Pointless, yes. But engraved in my memory forever, yes. I can't get enough of these silly 70's flix. They're part of my childhood...
