There is nothing "campy" about this movie, it just STINKS.
Only Robert Stigwood could take the greatest, most important album of the 1960s and turn it into the worst movie of all time.
It was an embarassment to everyone involved. The Bee Gees refused to comment about SGT. PEPPER in interviews during the 1980's and Billy Preston filed a lawsuit to have his name removed from the video box. It wasn't just a bad movie, it killed careers.
When I saw it in the theater with several friends during it's very short-lived general release, I was appalled at the movie's amauterishness. There is no plot, the dialogue would insult the intelligence of a typical 4th grader, and the acting is non-existent. The music is performed in some kind of mind-numbing daze with orchestration straight out of H.R. Puffenstuff.
Towards the end of the film Peter Frampton stands on a roof top contemplating suicide. In the theater two or three people, myself included, began shouting "Jump! Jump!"
It was the only time I've ever been in a movie theater when the audience booed as the final credits rolled.
There are a few short seconds while Aerosmith performs "Come Together" that are kind of interesting. But all of the rest of the movie should have been torn to shreds, burned, and buried in a pit on the dark side of the moon. It is absolute unadulterated GARBAGE.
I rank it 1 star because that's as low as the rating system goes. In reality it deserves negative 46 stars.

Only rent or buy this if you enjoy movies that are embarassingly bad (Grease 2, Two of a Kind, Rhinestone). Please do not listen to anyone who remembers this fondly from when they were 7 years old. It is exploitative trash and poorly made. The world did not need the Bee Gees performing Beatles songs. We were all ok with the Beatles version.

This one one of worst films I have ever seen. The songs are terrible. The acting is laughable. There is even a character called (get ready) Strawberry Fields. This piece of cinematic
eye candy destroyed the careers of the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton. You wonder what these guys were thinking when they were looking at the script.

It is hard to believe that they have released this piece of crap on DVD. The only thing about the 1970s that I regret is paying to see it.
Avoid at all costs.

The Beatles never existed--as far as this film is concerned, anyway. Before watching this movie, you should empty everything you know about the Beatles from your mind. While you're at it, you might as well empty everything else from your mind, because your intelligence may be insulted.
I watched this movie knowing it would be bad, but I was hoping it would be classic bad, cult following bad, Rocky Horror Picture Show bad. I wanted to hear George Burns sing "Fixin' a Hole" and Steve Martin deliver a slightly pervy redition of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer." I wanted to hear robots perform "Mean Mr. Mustard". And I really wanted to see Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees become the Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The movie delivers all of these and more, horrifyingly more. I can't even explain how bad this movie is. Let's just say that it makes Rocky Horror look like Les Miserables. This movie is also pretty racist; I'm white and I was offended by the portrayal of black people in it (Earth, Wind, and Fire, of course, were the exception; the guy who played the weathervane, on the other hand, made me feel like I was at a minstrel show). Sargeant Pepper's not bad in a fun way; it's just bad in a bad way.
I should say that the best performance of the movie is Aerosmith's snaky redition of "Come Together." This is coming from someone who is not even an Aerosmith fan. There are a lot of unbelievable moments in the film, but that one was surprising in a good way.

I loved this movie! I was not born during the Beettles time, I love musicals and this one blow my mind. I have been looking for this movie for over a year. I now have a daughter that is also into musicals and i wanted her to view this one and be able to appreiciate it as I and my sisters have.
