    Looks good. And the music might be ok, too.

    The filmmakers reduce the Beatles to a kind of karaoke kitsch epiphany. In "Yesterday," there's no mystery to these songs. The whole joke is what cosmically known quantities they are. Full review

    Film Review: ‘Yesterday’
    Danny Boyle's musical fairy tale about a world without the Beatles, in which an indie rocker brings them back, is really a fantasy of rebooting the Beatles. It's cute and watchable, but it lacks the magic of discovery.

    Fair enuff, summer fluff, a melodious Rom Com....we could do worse at the theater
    or streaming...in fact I have, much to my chagrin.


    It's not as inventive as ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, but ....
    and i was entertained with the "I AM SAM" beatles Covers.
