In retrospect, it seems infamous big-budget flops like "Ishtar" and "Heaven's Gate" perhaps 'deserved' all the merciless attacks. However,it remains puzzling why the lynch-mob fervor to rip apart Paul McCartney's comparatively small, independent feature "Give My Regards To Broad Street" seems to continue unabated 20 years after its release. If this tuneful, good-natured post card from McCartney to his fans offends you, then you walked into the wrong multiplex, because this film was not made for you. Sure, it's a vanity project, but that has become a rather hackneyed criticism. Doesn't anyone remember another "vanity project" from another rock star that was also released around the same time- "Purple Rain"? Can you say that movie (entertaining as it was) had any more of a "plot" than "Broad Street"? For that matter, how about ANY Elvis movie ever made-any 'plot' points were just lead-ins to the musical numbers, which is all the fans really were paying to see. At any rate, McCartney fans will love the music, which is plentiful. McCartney has some real top flight players backing him up, with appearances from Dave Edmunds, Chris Spedding, John-Paul Jones, Eric Stewart (of 10cc) and an off-camera David Gilmour, who contributed that memorably soaring guitar solo on "No More Lonely Nights". Oh yeah, and some funny looking bloke named Ringo plays drums. DVD notes: No extras, but excellent picture transfer and crisp audio.
