I know, right?
Beatles fans! Sheesh.
It's a real time capsule movie, capturing the innocence and optimism of the early 60s in wonderful black and white.
I don't hate it. De gustabus and all that...it's a perfectly fine little Beatlesmania spoof with homage to the Running, Jumping, and Standing Still film and without it we probably wouldn't have had the Monkees, which I did enjoy as a kid, so there's that. If you're a Beatles fan, I'm sure it's meaningful or has some significance to you, but I don't have any reverence for the Beatles or the film. And as I didn't exist in that era, naturally I don't have any sense of nostalgia for that age. To me it's just fluff, but to each their own. I'm certain there will be films that are far more dubious on this list.
