A film about the joy of being young and a little bit crazy, ruled by the organizing principle of all Zemeckis and Gale's early work: barely controlled chaos.

The maiden voyage in Zemeckis' sarcastic time machine

I Wanna Hold Your Hand re-creates precisely the excitement the Beatles let loose 14 years ago; it transports the audience back to the eye of a phenomenal social hurricane.

An engaging, slapstick look at the effect the Beatles had on the US when they crossed the Atlantic.

In the best scenes, Zemeckis suggests how the Beatles' blend of irreverence, romance and innocence encouraged a kind of youthful rebellion that was almost completely sanctioned.

If there's a tray full of food within camera range, rest assured that somebody will knock it over. If a stuck-in-the-elevator-on-the-eve-of-an-important-event routine presents itself, rest assured that its staging will be tried and true.
| Original Score: 2/5

The film that started Zemeckis on his rise to fame. Coo coo kachoo.

An interesting social document about a watershed media event as well as a thoroughly entertaining movie.

There are a few good moments (particularly for people who know the show's host and enjoy the spoof), but it seems an over heavy trip to the uninitiated.
