I liked this movie alot.It was very different and visually interesting which I appreciated. The soundtrack was amazing, and I bought it because I loved it so much.I currently dont own the movie but in the future i would buy it.
I just saw this film a couple days ago. It really made the songs come alive for me, beautifully done! I saw the bum when Martin Luther's character comes to New York and went that should be Joe Cocker - it was! Lots of fun trying to identify all the 1960s references. I am in the process of watching the audio comments now.
Story line is only an excuse for the songs. Covers several years in the 1960s about a British guy with wanderlust meeting an upper crust American girl, love and life in 1960s big city, getting separated and a happy ending. All with great songs.
Love it or not, a good one to see just for the references to 1960s and getting to know the Beatles. *I* loved it!
I watched it on blu ray and loved loved loved it. I'm a HUGE Beatles fan and thought the cast did a wonderful job. I also own the soundtrack and must say that it gets a lot of play on my ipod. Did anyone notice that whenever Jude or Lucy was going throgh something that Max was also having problems. I loved the starwberry fields sceen and when Max was singing "Hey Jude" my heart melted cause it was just the why I pictured it would be.
Just saw this. I am a big Beatles fan so I "got" a lot of the more subtle referrences in the film, which probably annoyed my DH as I kept pointing them out to him. The "Dr. Robert" character was based on Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters---"you're either on the bus, or off the bus".
