    The first time I had seen this film was the summer of 1978. I was 7 years old, really into the music of The Beatles and had to see this movie. This film was not a tribute to The Beatles, nor did the actual members of the group have anything to do with the movie. It was a fantasy film about the fictitious characters that The Beatles used in their songs off the "Sgt. Pepper" and "Abbey Road" albums.
    The story takes place in the make-believe town of Heartland where we are introduced to the original Sgt. Pepper and his Lonely Hearts Club Band. Twenty years after Sgt. Pepper dies, his grandson Billy Shears (Peter Frampton) decides to form a new Lonely Hearts Club Band with his friends, the Henderson Brothers (The Bee Gees). The film continues with the success of the Lonely Hearts Club Band, the problems the citizens are having in Heartland with Mean Mr. Mustard (Frankie Howard) taking over the town and the Lonely Hearts Club Band helping Strawberry Fields (Sandy Farina) recover Sgt. Pepper's instruments that Mean Mr. Mustard stole. They encounter many obstacles and hardships, but in the end, evil is overcome and everyone is happy.
    This film was not well received when it was released in 1978. Actually, everyone, including the critics and the public, hated the movie. The film was produced by Robert Stigwood (of 'Grease' and 'Saturday Night Fever' fame) and executive produced by Dee Anthony. Stigwood wanted to make his name associated with modern day musicals and had sunk 12 million dollars into "Sgt. Pepper." He approached the project with a lot of enthusiasm and publicity. When it was released, it was a big let down in the eyes of the critics and adults (who were teenagers when the original "Sgt. Pepper" was released) who went to see the movie.

    I saw this movie for the first time on television when i was very young - maybe 10? I've always remembered the movie - and I am the only person I know who did. Even my mother, who bought the album for me way back when, didn't remember it. That is, until my obsession with proving its existence brought me to buying both the VHS and CD. This movie is pure camp. I view it as a spoof on other musicals, melodrama, and the overabundance of "good versus evil" provided by the contemporary Star Wars (the battle between Billy Shears and Maxwell Edison is simply lovely). As a bonus, the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Sandy Farina, and Frankie Howerd all do renditions of classic Beatles' tunes which are to be judged separately from the originals. No one will ever sing "Lucy" like the Beatles - but in the context of the movie, Diane Sternberg does an exceptional job that is independent of the classic. Aerosmith's "Come Together" actually can hold its own with the original. Personally, I think the movie is worth watching simply for George Burns' softshoe version of "Fixin' a Hole" - well, that and seeing Peter Frampton in that oh-so-sexy silver disco suit. It's time to "Get Back" to movies that are just plain fun, and Sgt. Pepper is a great starting point.

    aw, c'mon, this movie was never trying to be 'crash'. it's a total flashback to everything fun and funky about the era. flashy costumes, tons of rare performances, and creatively produced music and visuals by the best in the business at the time, ensure there is something for everyone. so few films manage to capture both the naivete and the darkness of those times. i think the greatest thing about this movie is that everyone looks like they're having fun. must have been a blast to be on this set! i thoroughly enjoyed watching it with my teen daughter-- totally amused, entertained and remembering how exciting it all was on the big screen. let your cares fly and enjoy this glittery romp through a fantastical decade.

    I loved this movie as a kid and love having it on DVD....that's what the 4-stars are for. The fifth star is missing because I don't want people who've never seen the movie to get the impression that I'm saying it's a block-buster of a movie. In truth, it's pretty darn cheezy...but it's fun to see a young George Burns, Steve Martin, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Frampton, Sandy Farina, and the Bee-Gees. I also think it's cool the way the movie is basically the entire Bee-Gee's version of the Beetles Sgt. Pepper hits (and others) put to music, all 4 sides of the 2-record album and, I believe, in order. Oh, and I'll admit it, I like the Bee-Gees.

    When I was really young (like nine), I used to LOVE this flick. Today I have watched it as a grown man.

    Wow.

    Sometimes you forget just how much times have changed, and then something comes along and smacks you upside the head like a two-iron and reminds you. Movies like this used to fly.

    Incredible.

    It makes me want to watch "Shields and Yarnell" reruns. Or "That's Incredible".

    This film TOTALLY encapsulates the weird transition-phase that pop-culture went through as it kissed the seventies goodbye and leaped into the eighties. Everything is SO colorful, everyonoe looks SO innocent. Peter Frampton is dancing around in a sweet pair of white overalls with his name on them.

    Twisted man, really out there. This film really helps you understand where the punk movement came from.

    I don't know that this film has any redeeming qualities as an actual film, but as a study of late-disco era white culture, it is priceless.
