Atom User Reviews for Yesterday
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.
Finally a creative, fun, happy, clean film with excellent wit, cast, and music. Absolutely loved it. Going again tomorrow.
Garbage. Disrespectful towards The Beatles and anyone who knows anything about screenwriting. S**t.
Must see for Beatles lovers, fun for everyone. Two interesting twists I didn’t see coming.
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.
Loved it! Music was great!
Great movie! Will see again!
I was not planning to see it and then a friend wanted to go. I’m so glad I didn’t miss it.
Unexpected story and enjoyed the Beatles music.
Loved this movie so much , original and worth the watch .
Great sing along. Wonderful.
Wonderful! Going to see it again
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.
Charming, Lovable..... Meeting a John Lennon that didn’t die and seeing him as if he was alive today was Just a Perfect Touch for us Beatles Fans who always wonder what if - Happy Ending reminding us that the World is a Better Place with the Beatles Music in it !
Excellent movie.! It was a lot better than I thought it would be.
A fun story backed by the greatest songs ever. A lovely tribute to The Beatles and a true treat for Beatles fans! Loved it!
You will enjoy it very much
Super well done. Will make Beatles fans remember why they love the Beatles. Along with making new fans!
Loved that it was a clean movie without bad language!
cute show, unexpected story line. very enjoyable.
It was exactly what I expected. Saw it because of The Beatles. What's nice is, another generation is exposed to the timeless music The Beatles created. Will I be seeing the movie again, probably not, but I will continue to listen to The Beatles!
A must see for Beatles and want to be Beatles fans.
Loved the premise of the movie! Great story and plot
Good acting, neat premise for first twenty minutes. Wasn't clever enough to carry the movie .
The story is a bit far fetched but if you’re a fan of the Beatles music, that’s what it’s about. I loved the music, acting Ok.
Nothing great - nothing bad. Predictable.
I really enjoyed this movie, it was funny and sweet!
It was good. Had higher expectations, but i didn’t think the movie was awful
Fun with Mom. We both love the Beatles
Overall good film with a nice unexpected romance plot. Have to say, I enjoyed the first half of the movie more though.
go see it
Cute movie with an original premise. A little hokey, but it was enjoyable to watch.
Concert scenes are too loud, other than that, great movie!
Fun and Funny! Clever Story and good for the family of your child is older than 10 and if you don’t mind some adult language and very light sex scenes.
Finally, an original idea from Hollywood
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.
Seen it twice, loved it both times without being a huge Beatles fan.
very long and unappreciated ending
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.
Yesterday isn’t really about the Beatles. It isn’t about art, or career, or cultural context, or the music business, and it’s only about “love” inasmuch as Hallmark cards and McMansion word art are about love. It isn’t really about anything.
Yesterday is a film we’re all familiar with, for better or worse.
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.
