Ironically, Yesterday focusses on a man who plagiarises one of the most iconic back catalogues in the history of modern music, while Curtis seems equally happy to continue doing the same to his own.

A film that misunderstands the appeal of The Beatles more thoroughly than the 1978 disaster Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

There was too much Richard Curtis and not enough Danny Boyle in this case. I didn't feel like it was a melding of their voices that went particularly well.

...if you must regurgitate the same characters, at least don't strip them of the one thing that makes us fall in love with them. Otherwise, you're taking the rom out of rom-com.
October 1, 2019
With its sweet sentimentality and interest only in using the music of The Beatles as a means to honor The Beatles, Yesterday is a film ill-equipped to handle the very questions it brings up.

With respect to the Beatles legacy, the film really has nothing to contribute. [Full review in Spanish]
September 17, 2019
Danny Boyle clumsily stumbles on something even clumsier: the useless script from Richard Curtis. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 16, 2019
There are worse movies than Yesterday out right now.
September 13, 2019
In the absence of a conscious criticism of the industry, and preferring to betray its playful spirit, the film ends up becoming a basic and out of time romcom. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 12, 2019
A hollow, dull, and opportunistic movie that renounces all logic. [Full Review in Spanish]
September 4, 2019
Although the premise sounds quite attractive ..., Danny Boyle delivered a boring project that never speed up. [Full Review in Spanish]

If only Danny Boyle had taken an amusing movie and had made it better. [Full Review in Spanish]

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 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.

I am so incredibly frustrated by this movie. WHAT A PREMISE! And just NOTHING on the delivery.
July 17, 2019
It's overly simplistic to the point of utter banality.
July 16, 2019
A profound meditation on morality and individualism needlessly morphs into a generic rom-com...
