If you're willing to love it, you let an ambitious film like this in and you let its faults grow on you. All you need is love indeed.

Across the Universe is a good-natured (if sometimes enthusiastic to the point of corniness) romp.

It's a little slow going in the start, but once their engines are revved up, every swirl and lick are thought out with care and love...

If only...Across the Universe is simply a good film that easily should have been an unforgettably great one.

If you're going to reinvent songs, you cannot go wrong with the Beatles, even if John, Paul, George and Ringo have been replaced by Evan, Jim, Bono, Joe Cocker and others in a revolutionary way.

If you're a fan of the Beatles and their music, of unconventional musicals (this isn't Hairspray) or even of Bono (he has a couple of songs), this trippy trip Across the Universe is one you won't mind taking.

What would the world be like with Beatles music but no Beatles?

Visually and thematically audacious...

A marvelous visual experience that works even for non-Beatles fans.

The actors do their own singing, but their performances are pretty much beside the point; the real star is Taymor.

Across the Universe doesn't completely work, but when it does, you're in for one wild and wonderful ride.

The DVD two-disk set gives us the remarkable movie plus lots of extras
