Give My Regards To Broad Street... has two main things going for it: The ever-charming McCartney presence and McCartney s music, old and new But even together, they are not enough to carry a full length feature.
Token attempt at street cred: if Paul doesn't get the tapes back, he'll be taken over by a sunglasses-wearing business shark.
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.
A lot of effort has gone into this film's production values, but continuity seems, at best, to have been a secondary concern.
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.
Great music can't compensate for underdone plot and self-indulgent staging,
It's nice to McCartney and Starr making music together again, but the film mostly flops.
Average story but great songs and set pieces.
A really bad movie that exists solely to showcase McCartney's new tunes.
Vanity project for McCartney. Director Webb has lots of style -- none of it his own.
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.
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.
