A Hard Day's Night (1964)

A glorified extended music video considered a great film. Treated like "normal" day in the life of the Beatles, this film is popular just because of nostalgia. Just because you like them and their music, does NOT mean they can act.

Beatles telling jokes and their songs playing in the background is basically the entire film. A running gag with Paul's grandfather is beyond stupid and the jokes are cookie cutter and pathetic. The songs even repeat, with all the Beatles songs available they couldn't fill the film with different ones? I didn't just find this film boring, I found it painful to watch. Counting the minutes left from about 20 minutes in.

I'm very leery about watching the other Beatles movies now.

Vote: 2/10
