Storyline

Paul McCartney plays himself in another exaggerated "Day In the Life." Included are fictional scenes of the star preparing to film two videos, rehearsing in a loft, playing for the BBC, and even dreaming up a rather horrific nightmare. A loosely developed plot about missing master tapes ties all these events together Written by Ed Chen <echen@bcm.tmc.edu>

Quotes

City Banker: [to Paul] There are other arrangements to be taken into consideration, such as the agreement entered into with Mr. William Rath of Rathbone Industries. In fact, Mr. Rath has asked me to point out to you that unless the tapes are found by midnight tonight, the consequences will be 'very' serious.

Great music, fun movie, weak plot.
6 November 2002 | by CalamarDHSee all my reviews

If you're a big enough fan of Paul McCartney's to get past the fact that there's not too much to the plot, I would recommend for you to see it. The music is fantastic (he even kept the classics such as Eleanor Rigby, Here, There, And Everywhere, and The Long and Winding Road) and it's also just a fun little movie to watch if you're in a good mood. It's certainly not the greatest thing our Paul has ever done, but it not the worst either (Yeah, remember the Magical Mystery Tour same story: good music, bad plot). I give it a 7/10.
