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."

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for pure fun, but... Feb. 1 2010
Format:DVD|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.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Glad to have it on DVD June 7 2004
Format:DVD
It ain't the best movie ever made, but it ain't the worst.
Two big mistakes McCartney made with this project: 1) re-recording old songs (including a half-dozen Beatle tunes), instead of writing all new material (only three new songs were used) 2) writing the screenplay himself, instead of hiring an experienced screenwriter to flesh out his idea.
I can't think of a reason why a non-McCartney fan would want to watch this. If you are a fan, then there's worse ways to spend a couple hours. But really, it's hard to say anything specifically good about this movie. It's hard for me to believe that Macca never realized that the story was so under-developed and unimaginative. For such a creative person, he seems to have set out write the most boring story he could. That's why I consider it a mistake to use old songs-- he could've at least let the movie coast along on the strength of all new material.
I didn't see this in theaters 20 years ago. I can understand why people were so dissapointed. While there's nothing special about the film, it is far from the biggest disaster ever committed to celluloid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre at best May 28 2004
Format:DVD
It is absolutely absurd that anyone could truthfully rate this above 3 stars. "Concert for George", "The Godfather", "A Hard Days Night" those are 5 star films. Then think of all the other great classic films that may be 4 stars. You can't tell me with a straight face Broadstreet is even in the same country with those, let alone on the same street. I am so sick of all the Macca "over-raters" giving 5 stars for everything he does, whether it's garbage or not.
At the same time it is just as ridiculous to give this 1 star. The dreck that is "Lennon-the Messenger" or "Beatles Big Beat Box" are 1 star DVDs. Broadstreet is much better than those. The saving grace of this film is having Paul and Ringo together playing music, and in the beautiful fantasy dream segment. Those moments alone make this worth owning. The rest of the film is pretty tedious and embarrassing. The video transfer looks pretty nice, the audio though not 5.1 still sounds pretty good also. Too bad there were not better songs used for a lot of it. Bare bones packaging, no extras, but it doesn't cost much. Would it have killed them to add the "No More Lonely Nights" video? I don't think so...
Have it for your collection, and just use the track selection feature to watch it after the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music.
Not too much of a story line, but I didn't buy it for the story. The music is excellent and worth the cost.

I liked it better after I watched it twice. The music was great! The plot was a little slow I thought.
