Notes from the back:
Screenwriter/star PAUL McCARTNEY creates a rousing musical fantasy
about a pop singer/composer (McCartney) who discovers the master tapes of his new
unreleased album have disappeared. If he doesn't locate them by midnight, businessmen will
take over his company.
Among the musical highlights are fourteen spectacularly staged McCartney tunes including
Beatles classics "Yesterday", "Eleanor Rigby" and "Good Day

Paul McCartney's 1984 attempt at making a feature film. It
was horribly panned by reviewers and the media at the time of release. In my opinion, the
result is a bit haphazard, but not nearly as bad as others would have you believe. The
supporting cast is excellent, and there are some entertaining gags. However, even if you
hate the paper-thin plot, with judicious use of the fast forward button, the result is a
series of well produced, high quality music videos -- many including Paul and Ringo
onscreen at the same time.
