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,

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

It's nice to McCartney and Starr making music together again, but the film mostly flops.

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.

Vanity project for McCartney. Director Webb has lots of style -- none of it his own.

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.
