Critic Reviews for Give My Regards to Broad Street

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Token attempt at street cred: if Paul doesn't get the tapes back, he'll be taken over by a sunglasses-wearing business shark.

Top Critic

Give My Regards to Broad Street is about as close as you can get to a nonmovie, and the parts that do try something are the worst.

Top Critic

A lot of effort has gone into this film's production values, but continuity seems, at best, to have been a secondary concern.

Top Critic

You could call it a self-serving film, were McCartney's complacency not so all-embracing: self-flattery requires at least a hint of self-doubt, but there's no trace of anything remotely that unsettling on McCartney's placid, Buddha-like brow.

The acting here is weaker than the slender story, but intermingled with all the silliness are some fine performances of McCartney-Beatle standards as well as three new songs.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Great music can't compensate for underdone plot and self-indulgent staging,

Audience Reviews for Give My Regards to Broad Street

This is barely a film, it's more like a bunch of prolonged music videos, and a flimsy story holds them all together. Not good.

Super Reviewer

Paul McCartney tries to recreate the lovably scatterbrained antics of the Beatles in Hard Day's Night. The closest we get to "lovable" is Ringo telling some female reporter the he smokes weed.
