Movie Info

Having written the music and screenplay for this film, Paul McCartney also plays himself in the leading role. When the sole copy of McCartney's latest album is misplaced, he must discover its whereabouts in less than 24 hours or else risk losing his recording company to the lowlife Mr. Rath (John Bennett). McCartney performs three new songs, along with a number of classic Beatles' tunes. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovimore

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.

Time Out
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.

Chicago Sun-Times
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.

New York Times
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.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

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.

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.
