    The Beatles are so fun. This movie is a lot of fun. 

    Although this movie has its great comedic moments, the humor doesn’t land as well as it does in A Hard Day’s Night. Furthermore, the plot of this film feels stupid. 

    Dick Lester continues his great work. Now, he has color! And boy, he really uses that to his advantage. Throughout the film are colorful sets; most notably, the beautiful bedroom set is drenched in vibrant color. There are…

    This is a film that is very close to my heart. A film that I fell in love with when I first watched it as a young 11 year old.

    What Richard Linklater has accomplished in this film cannot be written off as a gimmick. Sure, the film would be awful if they shot this over a month. But that’s the point, we watched a child grow up from 6 years old to his first day of college. We get to see him transform from a boy to a man. That’s what makes this film so beautiful. It’s a film about growing up and a film about life.
