Director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and screenwriter Richard Curtis (Love Actually) have divergent cinematic sensibilities, but they meld well enough in this bittersweet, slightly wacky musical fantasy rom-com.
January 21, 2020
Yesterday has the right amount of clever ideas, humor, and musical moments to dance along from beat to beat.

It's an endearing high-concept fantasy, even though the premise doesn't bear a ton of scrutiny.
December 27, 2019
Boyle does have two fun leads in Patel and James, though, and a wonderful musical accompaniment, even if those songs are performed by Jack and not the Fab Four.

Yesterday is not trying to be anything other than what it promises: a gleeful ride through a wild premise with some feel-good music to keep you going along the way.
October 25, 2019
The vibe of Danny Boyle's Yesterday is so delightful and infectious that, for most of the film, all the troubles with the plot seem so far away.
September 30, 2019
Your typical romantic comedy with a fantastical fairytale component that provides the film with a unique spin on conventional genre tropes.
September 28, 2019
Considering it ends up being a conventional and predictable rom-com, I wish 'Yesterday' had taken more advantage of its premise. [Full review in Spanish]

The 'rom' half of this rom-com is unconvincing. In the end, we can hear "love is all you need, all you need is love" (or some variation thereof) throughout Yesterday, but it'll never amount to anything more than a pretty bit of karaoke.

From a film perspective, neither the structure, the narrative nor the plot is really impressive. What is impressive is the music.

The result is a very entertaining film, capable of connecting with audiences from very different generations. [Full Review in Spanish]

Conventional, noble and in some moments genuine, Yesterday is a rom-com that celebrates love itself as much as it obviously does love for the Beatles. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 16, 2019
This romantic comedy, written by Richard Curtis and directed by Danny Boyle, is funny, sweet, and guaranteed to make you smile.
September 12, 2019
A nice and entertaining comedy. [Full review in Spanish]
September 7, 2019
Yesterday is a trifle of a movie: a light, sugary sweet confection that is delicious and satisfying.
September 3, 2019
Despite the inconsistent story, the songs by the Beatles and their re-interpretation make the movie entertaining and enjoyable. [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.
August 30, 2019
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.
