Critics Consensus

Yesterday may fall short of fab, but the end result is still a sweetly charming fantasy with an intriguing -- albeit somewhat under-explored -- premise.

    A near perfect movie touching funny and romantic. Patel is superb and matched well with Lilly James. The music is top rate and the direction and writing near flawless. A don't miss for sure 07-05-2019

    While the third act feels a bit flat and more of a missed opportunity, if anything, the rest of the film is still cheekily fun and sweet. Yesterday's interesting premise and direction along with fantastic musical numbers is a solid ode to The Beatles that will have you skimming through their catalog of music after the credits. 3.5/5

    Yesterday is definitely a sleeper surprise, and I loved it! Imagining a world with the Beatles? It's a charming rom-com that plays on a blip in time where suddenly, bits of popular culture, including its music and films go missing! Hamish Patel is superb in his lead role as Jack Malik, well supported by Lily James and a great cast. My main criticism is the editing and the plot holes in the story telling. But overall, a lovely film. Enjoyed it.

    I have to admit it could have been better but Jack who thought he was a nowhere man turned out his dreams were not so far away that's why I believe in Yesterday. (7-2-19)
