Yesterday

No-one in the world can remember The Beatles except a struggling musician, who uses this bizarre situation to his advantage in this comedic flight-of-fancy tale directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle (127 Hours) and from the writer of Love, Actually.

Yesterday / Reviews

Its hefty humour and infectious characters will prove a delight for anyone looking to take a date or their parents out for a burly, original, crowd-pleasing night at the cinema.

It's a good, dumb premise. Only the first half works, though.

In "Yesterday," a world without the Beatles doesn't look any different, so there's little potency to the film's fantasy of the Beatles coming back.

Although this film can be a bit hokey and uncertain on narrative development, the puppyish zest and fun summoned up by Curtis and Boyle carry it along.

In the end, Yesterday does what it sets out to do, prove that a world without The Beatles would be infinitely worse.

The result is a pleasant but flimsy romantic comedy, ultimately undermined by its own wafer-thin premise.

Crowd-pleasing and sometimes enjoyable, but pretty damned dumb when you stop to think about it.

A glowing tribute to The Beatles and their music, this is both a toe-tapping pleasure to watch and a smart, occasionally scathing look at how we get things wrong.
