Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

File this under the "seemed like a good idea at the time" in a bunch of executives with one too many a brandy and a bit too much nose candy say "let's take one of the greatest albums of all time by one of the greatest band of all time and grab EVERYBODY we can find kicking around Hollywood and brutalise the shit out of it" and this is pretty much what you have with this film and is every bit as bad as you would expect it to be. It is however worth a look just to play the face recognition game, hell, they even managed to squeeze Paul and George in there and considering they snagged Alice Cooper you just have to wonder where John and Ringo were hiding. Marks the film debuts of Steve Martin and Carel Struycken and maybe a hundred other people as well and amazingly enough director Michael Schultz is STILL doing television work. Good television work at that!
