Before the door to his old life closes forever, Jack must decide if all he needs is love, after all. Kate McKinnon and Ed Sheeran also star in this romantic rock 'n' roll comedy from Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle and Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Richard Curtis.

Reminded me of the Beatles genius Great movie premise. Lots of music throughout. Likable characters. Would definitely recommend.
Very nice movie with its cute moments I saw the movie in theaters and it had a lot of cute moments, especially with Himesh’s character, Jack, and Lily James’ character, Ellie. Definitely recommend watching this movie if you like seeing songs from The Beatles.
Brutal execution What would have been a really intriguing and creative plot was destroyed quickly by its terrible execution. Truly a major let down
One of the greatest romantic dramas ever made This is a very simple movie, but it is filled with magic. This Indian guy is fantastic. And his lady manager is a perfect match for him. This is such a wonderful drama that everybody must watch. One of the deleted scenes that shows the interaction between our main player and a girl named Roxanne if unspeakably fantastic. He is asked to write a brand new song for the beautifuil girl named Roxanne, so he plays the Beatle song "Something" for her. You have to see this scene to believe it. I really wish they had incorporated that scene into the movie. Anyway, if you love romantic dramas, then you must purchase this movie. You'll love it. By the way, did anybody notice that Roxanne, in one of the deleted scenes, looks like Pattie Boyd, who was the wife of George Harrison? I cannot imagine that this was an accident or a coincidence. Fantastic!!!
Great movie - loved the rental Fantastic pick for movie date night
Friendly, Fun, & Non-Alarmist way of... Friendly, Fun, & Non-Alarmist way of introducing the phenomenon of “shifting realities via consciousness,” which according to pop-culture is known as the “Mandela Effect,” or as defined by the Vatican as the “Lazarus Effect.” - it’s a very REAL phenomenon which can shake people’s view of reality, hence why we see so many venomous comments in the reviews.
More to this movie than meets the eye This movie not only has great music and good acting but it also has a much deeper plot than people realize. Think "Mandela Effect". If you dont know what that is google it. This has hints of alternate parallel universe realities that are cunningly played out in this light uplifting "musical" comedy. Not only is this a great lighthearted movie, but it also has a deeper complex plot if you care to really look beneath the superficial.
Yesterday That was the most fun I've had watching a movie in a long time. Glad we bought it instead of renting. My wife and I immediately watched all the extras, and we will watch Yesterday again.
Good music - Dumb Story Seemed like a great concept based on the trailer...Didn't work for me at all. I really wanted something light and easy to enjoy and this wasn't it.
Okay I wasn’t really impressed by this movie. But it was to a degree entertaining.

Great premise. Very dissapointing execution Absolutely loved the premise. The execution, plot, writing, acting and story fell absolutely flat. main actors friends for 17 years and neither shows an incling of a spark toward each other untill the last 15 minutes of the film ?? Unintelligble gibberish talk by main actors. Totally flat, without depth performances. Senseless plot development. Stupid jokes and absurd slapstick garbage by co-stars. Ed Sheeran saved a bit of the movie. I wish I would have not spend my $6.99.
Oh man - The Emptiness I feel sorry for the money I spent on this empty nonsense, sigh. No spirit. No atmosphere. Just Walmart. Totally overrated.
Horrible movie One of the worst movies I have seen save your money
Not total tripe... but where was the Music? I’ve reviewed Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman.... liked them both very much. One more documentary style, one dreamy ‘what did I just take’ style... after hearing the push of commercials I was excited about this film. The way they made it sound was like a twilight zone episode (look it up kids) and The Beetles music would be front and centre with this young artist ‘recreating’ the songs and it would be a fan fest of a film. This, it was not. Nostalgic moments for sure, but how it played out was this was more of the Ed Sheeran show (I drove my wife and kids 6 hrs just to see him so it’s not against him per se). He was the dynamo in the world but this new music (the beetles) was so amazing that even Ed ‘humbled’ himself as a music writer (he IS amazing... gifted like an Elton John.... hate them :) and became second bill to it... it he was still front and centre... humbly. Their (beetles) music was inspirational and mind blowing... also occasionally trite and sometimes tripe. But their music was of a generation, now often misunderstood in this generation and that plays out when the new ‘writer’ of these songs is asked where was his inspiration from? So he goes and checks out old areas of Liverpool, Penny Lane, dear Elenor. He seems to ponder but what inspired the Beetles to make such incredible Music is lost here. Yup, these were the places. Ok, let’s make money. Every artist has their inspiring moments. The thing that makes them who they are. Everyone does. I had high hopes for this film as I thought it could be amazing and I guess I just had a different vision.. seeing how what happened to this artist could be mirrored into the beetles writings. I was focused on the beetles, the writers of this were focused on any music (it could have been Elvis.... the film wouldn’t have changed) and a love story. Is it a good movie? I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the thoughts of the still living beetles in the movie. That was the inspirational speech AND I had that in my version of the movie so well done there. I was hoping to enjoy the music.... are the rights that hard to get still Apple (good on Mr. Jobs)? The music was lacking. What was there was different and fun... loved it in fact. But I wanted more from this film.... like taking a sad song and making it better. Instead, I just got to hold your hand without that happy feeling inside I CAN hide. Perhaps there will be a sequel about the creation of coke (what a sad world that would be!) and then another about Young H.Potter. Now that could be fun.
Amazing!!! Finally a movie that really pulls you in! A must to watch!
Best movie ever So funny and entertaining
Not perfect but really good RomCom Saw it in theatres with wife, kids, and parents. All liked it. Not perfect but we’ll worth a watch. Put your mind in park and enjoy. If you like the Beatles, you’ll more than like it.
Amazing The storyline is so unique, the cast is great, the music is great. Definitely recommend. There is a good mix of comedy and romance. One of my favourite movies of all time.
