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.Read more ›
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.
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.

High camp. Rather hard to write a movie from a bunch of songs and it stretched things now and then but the Bee Gees did an excellent job singing, as did Peter Frampton. Read morePublished 1 day ago by akamarti
