Garbage. Disrespectful towards The Beatles and anyone who knows anything about screenwriting. S**t.

This might be my new favorite movie. Must see for any Beatles fan, but anyone else will still like it cause it's got a great story.

Just lovely, and whereas I figured it would have some humor, this was generally far funnier than I was expecting. Also, for type of story that is generally predictable, there were two genuinely unexpected moments. Very sweet and fun movie.

Movie just wasn’t good. You watch the trailer and there seemed to be so much potential in it but most of the clips in the trailer wasn’t even in the movie!! They had great potential for this movie but absolutely ruined it by turning it into a love story, like CMON!!! They never even finished a whole beetles song, and the beetles main songs were not in it such as yellow submarine and come together. It was a very big disappointment

I'm not sure what to say except, "meh." It was cute, but I felt like it tried too hard. Ed Sheeran was funnier than Kate McKinnon who couldn't decide on a character. Which sucks because I'm usually a fan of hers. Lily James and Himesh Patel did an awesome job and were very believable in their role, but I still can't go above 3 star.

I was so looking forward to seeing this movie. How could you not with the entire world never hearing of the Beatles and their great music except for one down and out person. The premise was outstanding for a romantic musical comedy. Unfortunately, within a half an hour the entire movie comes off the rails as it disintegrates into a boring , by the numbers, predictable “how did they completely ruin this movie!” Avoid.

Sooooo, it was cute. I did like that it didn’t take too long to get to the whole plot of the movie. However, it was extremely mediocre. The characters were lovable and the acting was decent. I thought there’d be a little more respect paid to the intricacies of the music but I suppose it was as deep as its surface. There’s no way the movie should have been that long though (gimme a break). Predictable date movie sure to get the guy/girl a kiss goodnight. It was pretty much what I expected so in light of that I suppose it didn’t disappoint. ***

Simple movie, but great plot and original concept when it comes to the "be careful what you wish for" type story. The main actor and actress worked wonderfully together and it was good and the actors who played the parents were funny and added just the right amount of humor to the movie. I would have given it 5 ☆ but near the end it seemed to have one or two small plot holes that had me scratching my head. sorry dont want to give any spoilers. All in all me and my wife enjoyed the movie and it was a great little date night movie that we both were eager to see and both enjoyed in the end, which is somewhat of a rarity

Entertaining story with a great music backdrop of course. Nothing deep or too thought provoking but fun and uplifting with a love story blended in

Although the movie is a bit predictable and forced, it is successful in bringing a message across that I think is getting lost too often today. Mostly great music and an interesting "cameo" that somewhat blew my mind, but was handled nicely. Not nearly as good as "Love Actually", which is my favorite movie of all time.

I am an extreme Beatle fan. This movie was written by an extreme Beatle fan. This highlights the genius of Beatles music and in a light hearted Sy Fi scenario exposes a whole new world to the phenomenon. Very clever AND respectful to the four guys from Liverpool.

What a wonderful surprise! A totally fun and inspiring movie, a great tribute to the Beatles and their import on the music world--and Britain--wrapped up in a really sweet love story. Loved the cast, the songs, and using "Hey Jude"--all 7+ minutes of it--as an end credit song. A wonderfully written and produced alternative for the summer.

Enjoyed this offbeat, fun love story, and I lived through and always loved the Beatles' wide variety of fantastic music. Very good cast as well.

It’s not as if the people never existed, only the band, and the logical conclusion of all this speculation is exactly where the movie takes itself. I don’t want to spoil the party, but it feels like exploitation.

Neither a no-nonsense delight like She Loves You nor the White Album-style head trip its premise might suggest, it's more of a Yellow Submarine sort of film: crowd-pleasing and sometimes enjoyable, but pretty damned dumb when you stop to think about it.
