An engaging, slapstick look at the effect the Beatles had on the US when they crossed the Atlantic. The time is February 1964, and the group are about to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show. Allen is about to get married but wants just a single night with one of the "fab four." Saldana is a

struggling photographer who knows that exclusive pictures of the band will get her career going. Sperber and Deezen are supreme Beatle groupies, and Newman and DiCicco are Beatle-haters planning to ruin the group's TV appearance. All these people converge on the New York City hotel where the band

is staying and then move on to the TV studio. After slowly introducing the characters, the film accelerates pace. Directer Zemeckis (USED CARS) handles comedy well; he and his frequent writing partner Bob Gale also cowrote 1941 for their mentor Steven Spielberg, who executive produced this

film.
