Product Description

Screenwriter/Star Paul McCartney creates a rousing musical fantasy about a pop singer/composer (McCartney) who discovers the master tapes of his new unreleased album have disappeared. If he doesn't locate them by midnight, businessmen will take over his company. Among the musical highlights are fourteen spectacularly staged McCartney tunes including Beatles classics "Yesterday," "Eleanor Rigby" and "Good Day Sunshine."

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazing misstep Aug. 25 2010
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In this odd and very bad movie, we see Paul McCartney as he goes about an average day of appointments, all the time trying to find the missing and irreplaceable master tapes for his next album. We see him rehearse and perform some Beatles and Wings songs with Ringo on drums and wife Linda doing whatever it was she did. His search for the tapes includes many dream sequences and even a pointless and embarrassing visit with his deceased father in the person of the late Sir Ralph Richardson.

The movie is a confusing and dreary mishmash of reality, drama, and music videos created by screenwriter and star McCartney. Sadly it is depressing and boring, completely devoid of life and energy. The most that can be said about Paul's 'performance' is that he had the good taste to look totally disinterested the whole time; despite the threatened take-over of his company if the tapes cannot be found, he maintains a glum pokerface as does the rest of the cast. I didn't care about the plot because he didn't seem to care. This must have been his attempt to make a cinema vérité film similar to "A Hard Day's Life," but there is not a moment of humor or even pleasant camaraderie with his coworkers; he wanders from place to place like a sleepy zombie. Wife Linda is seen but never mentioned nor does she speak, and Ringo's wife plays a journalist who just hangs around and stares at Ringo.

This project must have looked much better on paper and I'm sure McCartney thought this would show him as a sensitive actor and artiste; unfortunately, we see just the opposite - a man who can afford to star in his own movie even if it's a waste of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terribly Under-rated Sept. 29 2013
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Even if viewed solely as a collection of Macca music videos just strung together it is a fantastic product. Sure the story is goofy and generic , but who cares? The music is great and the videos are great. I loved it. I even bought the music.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing film July 10 2013
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is the worst film I have seen in a long time and I am a lifelong fan of Paul McCartney. What a waste of so much talent, so many great actors and musicians. The only parts I enjoyed were the clips I saw on You tube, the two in the recording booth : "For no one " and " The Medley ". Amazing French Horn player. Paul, much as I have loved him when the Beatles first appeared on the scene when I was 16, is no actor and even most of the musical scenes were bad. Most of the actors I know so well and have appeared in many good films & TV, Phillip Jackson, Bryan Brown, Sir Ralph Richardson etc. and even George Martin. It was a bad script, poorly produced and directed and had the potential to be a good, not a great but entertaining musical film. I really got it just for the music but even that let me down.

Not too much of a story line, but I didn't buy it for the story. The music is excellent and worth the cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for pure fun, but... Feb. 1 2010
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Non Spoiler Review:

A thoroughly enjoyable movie for a number of reasons. There are fun intentional gags in the style of the Beatle's Help. There are unintentionally funny parts in which physics and McCartney's acting skills are challenged. Written by Paul McCartney of Beatles and Wings fame himself, or was it by McCney? That is the question. An art movie? A comedy? A light fantasy? A personal journey of introspection for him, or a revelation of such to us? I believe it is a combination of all of the above.
There's no doubt about the artistry of the music, and visuals accompanying them. With Sir Paul that's pretty much a given. This movie can easily be touted as a bona fide collection of videos, whether one likes the scripted parts in between or not. He and the studio didn't skimp on the musical sequences, which come fast and furious for those wading impatiently through the admittedly and intentionally silly plot. Now how about artistry in the script writing? I believe there actually is some, despite McCartney's lack of experience. Smooth and clever fades into different scenes, touching moments, wit and humour. It's too bad he didn't have some collaboration with an experienced script writer to polish some of the dialogue, and a film director who caught and re-shot the badly acted parts. This could perhaps have been a great movie instead of a really fun one.
The comedy is silly, just plain fun. It often features Ringo, a wonderful addition to this post Beatles McCartney project.
The plot is not technically fantasy, but slips into that genre through dream sequences, often beautifully done. A scene with a ghost Linda McCartney on a gorgeous horse is eerie now that she's passed away from cancer.
