August 31, 2019
Yesterday captures the best elements from Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis, but can't manage to bring them together effectively. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 30, 2019
A little bit of fantasy. A little more on romance. While the film was generally pleasing, I feel it only touches on the surface of this new world it conjured.

The film actually works... due to the Himesh Patel's performance. [Full review in Spanish]
August 22, 2019
Yesterday blends comedy, romance, and science fiction to create a fun time that Beatles fans and rom-com aficionados will enjoy.
August 21, 2019
The film also packs an emotion punch with a scene that had many in the audience, myself including, tearing up. Boyle's direction is brisk and screenwriter Curtis is at the top of his game.
August 19, 2019
Yesterday is a fun movie, but it is does a disservice to the Beatles songs by downplaying their context and suggesting they somehow transcend place and time.
August 19, 2019
With The Beatles on its heart and solid performances in the forefront, Yesterday hits all the right notes.
August 17, 2019
There are both poorly-scripted elements and fun moments in this collaboration between Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis. However, the strength of the musical presentation and the performances are enjoyable enough to overcome most of the shortcomings.
August 14, 2019
Besides excessively long musical numbers and mediocre humour, the romantic scenes between Jack and Ellie are boring. The actors appear wooden, and the story is predictable.
August 11, 2019
While I'm sure it will appeal to Beatles fans, Curtis has erred in structuring the story as a formulaic rom-com.
August 7, 2019
An intriguing story about honest mediocrity versus plagiarised stardom is sabotaged by a need to please Beatles nostalgists.
August 6, 2019
Yesterday is billing itself as a feel-good movie, buoyed by its Beatles-fuelled soundtrack and quirky premise. But will it make you feel good? Only if your personal bar is pretty low to clear.
August 2, 2019
Though the film is a predictable, though undeniably very enjoyable, one-trick pony, it has lots of nice little touches and is genuinely great, feel-good entertainment.
July 31, 2019
Such a lovely, warm viewing experience that it's impossible to go too tough on it
July 25, 2019
It might be grotesquely eager to please, but, well, it's a pleasure.
July 24, 2019
The powerhouse duo of director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting) and rom-com screenwriting legend Richard Curtis (Love, Actually; Four Weddings, etc) deliver unto the world an extremely likeable, feather-light fable about music, love and plagiarism.
July 22, 2019
...an irresistible premise that's employed to mostly entertaining yet somewhat underwhelming effect...
July 20, 2019
I am so incredibly frustrated by this movie. WHAT A PREMISE! And just NOTHING on the delivery.
July 18, 2019
Himesh Patel does fine in the role of Jack, who literally falls into this predicament...and can sing, also.
July 18, 2019
It may be a little early to trot out the old "feel-good movie of the year" designation, but it's going to be tough to beat director Danny Boyle's Yesterday.
