Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Movie Review Summary

Actors: Peter Frampton, the Bee Gees, George Burns, Sandy Farina, Aerosmith, Steve Martin

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

A small-town band led by Billy Shears (flavor-of-the-year Frampton) hits the big time and loses touch with its roots. A dastardly music industry plot to destory their home town gets the boys back on track. This misguided 1978 tribute to the Beatles and one of their greatest albums is never sure whether to be respectful of the music or to camp it up all the way. Aerosmith does all right singing "Come Together" in their cameo as the villains, and Earth Wind & Fire's excellent cover of "Got To Get You Into My Life" is included, but the plot is stupid, most of the acting unworthy of being termed such, and it's a bit excruciating to see Steve Martin do "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" and George Burns execute "Fixing a Hole." Almost makes the "so bad, it's good" category, but not quite.
