it was fun
26 August 2006 | by connertimsterSee all my reviews

I was actually in this movie! Yay! My ONLY appearance in a movie was unfortunately in this turkey. And yes Christina Applegate was sitting two rows down from me...although no one had any idea who she was at that time, other than a cute little kid. My wife and I had seen Beatlemainia, the stage show, several times and went to the DC pavilion that night to see it again...AND be in the movie. It cost $6 for admission and everyone was sorted to different parts of the theater as they came in. It seemed to be an effort to get the more attractive of the those wanting to be in the movie in the front seats. We got picked to sit only 3 rows from the front, so you can see us several times throughout the film. The rest was essentially boring crap. "Everybody laugh"..."everybody scream and cheer"..."OK, be quiet for a while"... Kinda neat to see how they make a movie and actually be "directed". But other than that, anyone could tell this was NOT going to be a classic. It seemed VERY silly then and it still does. I mean why put something like an impersonation up on the screen when the camera will tell you instantly that it isn't the original? Anyway the music was good and for a treat the director let the group do part of their real show after the filming. Fun night...silly film. See it! See ME!...hahahaha
