I've been a huge fan of the Beatles since the Ed Sullivan days, and I tried to watch this movie 3 seperate times throughout the years and couldn't get through to the end. Maybe I'll try again one day when there's no Yankees game on tv.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Well, I bought Magical Mystery Tour on ebay for a few dollars. It came today and I watched it. It still did not impress me and in fact I thought it was downright awful, but for the fantastic music and musical segments. Hardly any Beatles.

This film is worth watching if only for the imbedded video of I Am The Walrus. Who says that the MMTour film has no plot? Yer sadly mistaken there mates. Very colorful indeed.

I actually enjoyed the movie very much. My mum thinks it stinks and my dad said it wasn't cinematic genius but he wasn't expecting it to be that in the first place.

I love the whole scene with John and the little girl. When I told my friends they thought the dickie bird rhyme was hilarious. I prefer the jokes in AHDN and Help much more though.

All Lucy's must think alike!

I like it too but, as I've said before, that could have something to do with the fact that I was a weirdo film student and have always looked at it from that perspective.

Probably the more accurate reason is that it has The Beatles in it. I'm quite keen on them, you see.

Lucy : Your right..! I remembered when MMT came to the campus at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ when I attended school there back in the early 1970s. The plot of the movie (if any) was crazy, but it was "The Beatles" with their new music that always caught my attention.

Did you know that Paul exposed himself during the Fool on the Hill music scene? It's during bit where he appears from behind the hill and skips towards the camera in a long, black cloak. His shirt-tail is showing, but if you look closely, there's something wobbling underneath! What does everyone think?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

By God, you're RIGHT! I couldn't believe that when I saw it, but it's there! Had to squint a bit though, really. Guess that explains why he was able to hit all those high notes.

MMT was kind of Monty Python like it plot and just over all acting, which isn't bad because Monty Python is some of the best comedy ever. Although the plot was a little weak, the music was very good.
