Pathetic acting and a scattershot plot sink this pitiful attempt by producer Robert Stigwood to turn the landmark Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band into an engaging film.

Sitting through what passes for a story here is like trying to make a meal out of a can of vanilla frosting. ...The comments on the test screening scorecards must have been priceless.
