Initially watched as It was filmed at my workplace (The Warehouse where he works in the film) but as a Beatle fan also it was extra enjoyable.

Would have given it a 5 but hubby enjoyed it so bumped it by a point.

No interesting developments, full of clichés and boring romance.

Entertaining, brilliantly directed .

Refreshingly original and entertaining.

What if just like in Yesterday, he all of a sudden forgot about his previous work and decided to work with screenwriter Richard Curtis (Love, Actually) to makes the most dull film we've ever seen of him?

Funny, romantic, entertaining, and a reminder of the great music that has been written, sung and lives on.

And given the fact that the last half of the movie was so mundane didn't exactly help to lift up the enjoyment of sitting through the movie as it trotted onwards in a generic and monotonous pace.

but still I felt the film slow and with with very little emotion.

This film is such a disaster, just don't waste your time.

Unmagical Mystery Bore .

An interesting concept that's taken down by an utterly uncharismatic and uninteresting actor, Himseh Patel, whose expressions range from baffled to , well, baffled, with the occasional WTF look thrown in.

It's fast in all the wrong ways, and it's slow, in all the wrong ways.

Including lots of Beatles classics in a film isn't enough to paper over the cracks of a wafer thin, ludicrous plot and a predictable, sappy love story.

However, I think there is one major idea to take from the movie, which is the unexpected pleasure of being a normal person and having a normal life.

The idea that the Beatles could disappear from all but three peoples' memory is intriguing.

No plot.

It then morphs into a fascinating "what if" scenario that could also be a dystopia to many.

unorthodox yet entertaining .

Presumably the makers assumed that Richard Curtis scripts are so predictable there was nothing to spoil, and, apart from a scene where John Lennon appears as an old man, never shot dead in 1980, it's all very "safe roads" and a fantasy world that never exists...

I highly recommend it for all ages; Beatles fanatics and casual listeners alike.

Together they make a engaging pairing.

Thus, Yesterday is very much a 'Long and Winding Road' towards a predictable outcome.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is a struggling singer in a small seaside town who is going nowhere.

Most of the characters were bland, with no true motivations and awful chemistry.

Yes, I'm fully aware of some of the awful things that it does, such as that one scene where there are like sixty cuts or something, simply ignoring a handful of movies (Flash Gordon mainly) or other artists they collabed with, and also having the time of events (such as album releases or when Freddie gets AIDS) to be very confusing and also disappointing.

It's entertaining, funny, well acted with an original premise and welcome light-hearted tale in the current age of gritty, dark, viloent action movie landscape.

This premise is fun, lighthearted, and thoroughly enjoyable in execution by Danny Boyle, who clearly understand what this film needs to be.

Great music (Beatles obviously), the leads were entertaining (Lily James was adorable, even with bad hair) .

You'll be entranced by the powerhouse performances, beautiful emotional beats and an endlessly fascinating plot-thread.

It's also predictable with a sad whimsical elemental surprise towards the end.

The only criticism I have of this film is that it contains a rather maudlin and predictable romantic subplot, which it could have well done without.

What we got instead was a bland, phoned-in story about unrequited love that didn't stir any emotions, wasn't funny and didn't so much end as peter out.

So if you have a boring Sunday then this film is for you.

Lightweight but enjoyable .

Even my daughter left the theater saying, "it could have been so much better".....

Also, my fear was that they were going for a cliche ending of "waking up from a coma and realising it was all a dream", and I was very very pleased that they opted for a much more intelligent end.

I loved the multi racial but still British landscape, also this is one of those rare films with no cartoon baddie verses good set up, there is no real baddie in the movie, (much like miyazaki's totoro and kiki's), and the interest comes from looking into the what ifs more than the unrequited love aspect, which was well done and Lily James was gorgeous and Himesh Patel was suitably oblivious etc, it was needed for the story but it lead to be the rather too neat and tidy focus of the ending, ie it ended up being a love story more than an intriguing sci fi one.

Looking at this film as a drama or romantic film is where it really shines and is more enjoyable.

But the main problem with this movie was the love element, it was so unoriginal, unrealistic and predictable, it totally ruined the film's soul.

What caused their phenomenal success and the way they changed the course of pop and rock music in a few years of intense activity (compositions, recordings, concerts)?

Entertaining if you don't think too hard .

Definitely worth watching.

And to its merit, the love story is charming, if predictable.

And in the end the film is saved because he meant to rub hard on that very note and he did, through various exciting techniques.

The premise is actually quite fascinating, and the real reason why I decided to watch this movie.

But for anyone who is inclined to forgive romcoms for their confusing plots and awkward flaws, and who loves The Beatles, this is a winner.

I did find the movie running a little too long or feeling a little dragged on in the second act.

To top it off, there is a scene towards the end of the movie where he meets one of the Beatles that is so contrived, convoluted and almost insulting that I cringed.

The music carried much of the story, and the overall science fiction/fantasy/dramatic concept was intriguing.

the "jokes" fall flat and it's predictable.

However, the movie got boring during the second half.

Boyle gives the movie a modern feel while maintaining some bland hometown backdrops before ramping it up to major stadium performances.

Totally Enjoyable.

Therefore this film is a waste of time.

In the end, the narrative takes a really heart-warming and unpredictable turn in the final act, avoiding many outcomes that many audiences members (myself included) could have easily predicted.

It was well acted, but it the whole movie just dragged on and on.

I really enjoyed it.

Worth watching, if you adore the Beatles or not!

A movie to see with unexpected plot, extremely funny and witty dialogues.

Just a bland copy-pasted love story with boring characters you don't care about.

There was an unexpected surprise that took my breath.

Rocky and the Kate McKinnon character are just unbearable in their slapstick superficiality.

All the story is just so predictable and except for the principle of the plot, being the world forgetting about the existence of The Beatles, there is nothing original about this movie.

Lead actor zero charisma & dull.

But simply a well done and enjoyable movie for young and old alike..

Then the air just seeped out of the balloon and it went horribly flaccid and mundane.

The love story is uninteresting.

It was entertaining, ridiculous and had a few acting bits or plot lines that made you role your eyes.

Bland love story masked by a unique idea .

Every character is completely one-dimensional and uninteresting beyond the single thing they are known for.

It is an entertaining film.

I really enjoyed it and if you are a Beatles fan, you probably will, too.

An enjoyable distraction, not to be analysed too deeply .

So, it's worth watching once especially if you like the Beatles.

The reason why I think the ending dragged my enjoyment down.

Regardless of my issues with the film, I still enjoyed it for its light tone and interesting concepts.

Totally predictable...

It all makes for a lovely and entertaining afternoon at the movies, and that's more than I can say for a lot of movies these days.

Jack Malik was so bland, and uninteresting, that you never once learn anything about him.

Inventive story and a very entertaining evening of Beatles music.

The story was good and the concept was very cool but it dragged on and on and on!

The worst movie that I've seen in a long time.

If the basic premise of your movie is extremely confusing and doesn't make any sense then it doesn't matter how good anything else in the movie is, because the whole movie takes place because of a gigantic plot hole.

Good songs but pretty boring.

It's predictable, cliched and sends all the right messages about the pitfalls of fame, true love, following your passion in life etc etc. The only moment that truly turned my head was when the main character met John Lennon.

A couple things I didn't care for: The slow, mushy love parts between the main character and the lead girl just dragged.

In terms of notable production values, the editing can be fast paced whenever it's being timed to the songs.

Mandi, his manager, is an especially frustrating and unrealistic character as a purely greedy, uninteresting agent.

A stereotypical, boring, cliched romantic film.

Rather Slow And Mostly Uneventful .

Boring and not funny at all.

Interesting Premise, but with very miserable & dull characters .

The movie was so boring I was itching to look at my watch, the scenes barely connected to anything significant, and there is on character that was there just to be annoying and just wouldn't go away.

And that's ignoring the fact that he is such a bland and uninteresting chatcter.

Perhaps a boring day will brighten up with this one.

However, the trailer didn't exactly blow me away, but it looked entertaining, so I gave it a watch.

What was challenging;1, the plot was either so corny or so contrived, some plot twists were just unnecessary and added nothing.

I was attracted by the trailer and I found the movie was light and entertaining with all the Beatles songs....

Very often the character "tells" you in their dialogues what's happening instead of using the plots so it's very boring.

As to be expected, cliché of clichés, a narrative event intervenes to turn things around.

For example, the concept of the world having a 12 second power shortage and certain things being completely erased from the world is a rather childish and confusing idea.

Such An Entertaining Movie .

Jack's music 'career' is going nowhere, fast and he is ready to give up on his dream.

Instead it is a repetitive formulaic cliché caused by a hebetudinous script.

Yesterday is a enjoyable and funny movie.

Still, an entertaining night out, and great memories for Beatles fans.

But ultimately, it's the simple premise that also makes it endlessly intriguing.

I mean, a hero who appears asexual for the first part of the picture and a woman who claims to have waited for a decade or more for a guy to ask her out, with their main conflict being between romance and rock-and-roll fame despite the fact that she was his manager--talk about contrived.

A very entertaining movie with depth and humor.

It was boring as hell and I never want to see it again.

You know how that will end, taking considerable surprise away from an otherwise intriguing premise.

Unfortunately, it settles for easy humour and a predictable romance.

Instead, the film settled for a rather predictable romance between Jack and his ex-manager/best friend Ellie that, in all honesty, wasn't very interesting.

what we get here is a crowd pleasing and predictable film.

That's boring.

For such an unusual and fun premise Yesterday somehow manages to atrociously butcher the execution of the idea, and then falls into a generic and trite romantic comedy .

I went to see it two days ago and it was thoroughly enjoyable!

All of the dialogue is witty and perfect, all the characters are interesting, and it has an extremely engaging plot and romance.

The concept of Yesterday is an intriguing one, if a little familiar.

My only complaint is that I always thought that the parallel world or alternate reality or newer dimension would at least be engaging.

The biggest problem with Boyle's approach is how formulaic the entire movie is.

It's an entertaining, gentle, feel-good film.

I loved the simple tribute made to John, it was very simple and very exciting at the same time.

What I didn't like was the movie seemed to have an underdeveloped storyline, the constant "in and out" of the visions and reality that the main character was experiencing (that was kind of hard to follow), the character of Debra attempting to give Jack the "Hollywood" lifestyle (I didn't like how that was presented or portrayed).

Greatly made, really worth watching it!!

I think everyone left the theater smiling.

Worth watching .

This was the worst movie I have seen in a decade.

Enjoyable for Beatle Fans .

Disappointingly Formulaic .

It just got repetitive to watch the things that took place on the screen.

But the film turned out to be a first class romcom, intertwined with an intriguing story line about The Beatles.

entertaining from the beginning to the surprising ending.

We enjoyed it very much, it is one of the better movies we have seen in recent months.

I mean, the characters were so cliche, so one-dimensional and extremely boring!

To say that this movie is predictable is utterly ridiculous, there is a genuine level of surprise in each and every scene - which is just fabulous.

Enjoyable lite Beatles fantasy .

Original and totally enjoyable.

Sure, there is a large pacing issue without, which makes the film feel like it is going too fast while at the same time moving too slow.

Unexpectedly funny and unpredictable.

I am fully aware of the exaggeration, but allow me to moan and groan: I'm slightly disappointed with such a banal rom com about The Beatles, a stuff of legend across all periods of time.

Well worth watching and some brilliant subtle jokes.

A sweet movie that is entertaining!!!.

I just got home from watching the 11:45 AM showing of 'Yesterday' at 'The Lot' in San Diego, CA, it was an amazing experience, the huge recliners along with the outstanding service made watching the movie very enjoyable and I recommend everyone try the unique movie experience at least once.

To the naysayers, this movie was very, very entertaining.

It's an enjoyable film and is actually quite funny at some points.

It's a really enjoyable feel good movie.

That premise sounds great, and I was looking forward to a surreal comedy, but to be honest, it doesn't quite live up to it, instead getting distracted by what the actual main plot turned out to be: a cliche romantic comedy with the childhood friend that is secretly in love with the protagonist, only for him to figure it out for himself later.

Simple and yet so entertaining, especially if your a fan of the Beatles.

Predictable and cliched .

Figure it out and you'll understand why YESTERDAY is such an empty experience.

I agree, idea was nice, but acting was so boring, overcast, so weak director's and writer's work!.

boring movie!.

This is a dry, boring movie , quite sad at times , really awkward during a lot of scenes.

This movie was very enjoyable and I give this high applause!

Definitely worth watching.

But overall the plot was lacking, the movie was slow and it left me wanting so much more.

However, the biggest "let down" so to speak was the lack of mind-blowing, or even suspenseful, revelations that the trailers suggest lied in the wings of this mystery.

Although superficially showing the influence that the Beatles disappearance has had on the world, it's well worth watching, it's fun and a guaranteed nostalgic soundtrack.

After the first third, there are occasional beads of hilarity and heart but these are largely lost within a sea of banal aimlessness that feels like borderline laziness on behalf of its creators who we know can do so much more.

If you'll notice, almost every positive review says nearly the same thing I'm going to say: Despite it's flaws, this was an entertaining and enjoyable experience.

thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours.

The story is boring and predictable.

Yesterday is worth seeing for the excellent cast and for Beatles music fans plus Ed Sheeran fans ,who plays himself very well and its entertaining and good fun in parts as The Beatles song goes "It Was a Hard Days Night " and the script needed "Help"!

This movie falls short on being a great film but overall it's something worth watching.

a waste of time which could have been used for other Beatle songs 4) Why did the dad go back to get a tuna sandwich and why did we have to watch that.

As the story progresses, the movie loses speed and slips into little compelling melodrama which cannot be saved even by Lily James, the beautiful and talented actress, known from theater plays on the best English scenes.

I still enjoyed it more than I expected.

The first half of this movie was funny, compelling and quite gripping really.

Jokes aside, while it was great to hear the songs I grew up loving (I'm 49), I felt a little disappointed about the script (dull) and some of the acting.

Light hearted and entertaining .

The characters were cute and there were some fun and fairly unexpected "twists" near the end.

The story line was really predictable and honestly really cheesy and lame.

I felt the film deserved a stronger ending but it was very enjoyable and I look forward to the DVD/Blu-Ray release, which I believe includes an alternative ending.

This is a movie you wait until everyone is gone before you leave the theater...

Fun, entertaining, and a little too long.

Contrived, forced, bad acting with a telegraphed plot line.

Extremely predictable and boring.

You will leave the theater asking yourself if the world of pop music with everything treated as a product could ever produce music to the quality and quantity of the Beatles again.

An entertaining movie.

An intriguing concept struggles to maintain its novelty throughout the run time since the follow through can't quite successfully hit its mark.

The lesson displayed was unexpected.

I enjoyed it!

Which brings us to the predictable and rote rom-com that the movie devolves into in the third act.

The characters have their moments, but I felt like they lacked the charm and substance that could've made the romance more entertaining.

If you didnt find this film entertaining and uplifting i feel sorry for you for you are soulless what did you expect the film to be it does exactly what it says on the tin and i for one cant fault it

JIM'S REVIEW: Yesterday plays with a very intriguing premise: Living in a parallel universe, a musician discovers a world untouched by the music of The Beatles and begins to pirate their tunes as his own.

I find him lacklustre and boring.

Really enjoyable film.

It was just all a bit too formulaic.

First, the rather low initial IMDb ratings and other reviews were surprising, given how compelling the trailer was.

Luckily though, Himesh Patel portrays Jack with such a relatable and likeable charm - his bewilderment and frustrations at the ridiculousness of the music industry, not to mention the building pressures of living the lie that his success has come from using someone else's work, guides us nicely through these slower moments of the movie.

Well-drawn, likeable characters and based on an intriguing premise.

It's all very sweet, quite generic and predicable with its happy ending, but it is entertaining and damn those songs are good!

I had to leave the movie half way out of sheer boredom.

While he does have a predictable outcome with his manager/friend Ellie whom both have feelings for each other, it does give him growth in deciding between living either a ginormous lie or a simple life of happiness and solitude.

What is left after his writing is a sad bunch of cliche's.

The ending was extremely predictable - of course he finally declares his love for her and comes clean, and of course she's ready to jump right in his arms after saying she was moving on and seeing another guy (clearly just a plot device to force Jack to make a move and never seen as a real person).

A witty, touching, enjoyable film of potential greatness thrust upon an ordinary person who is riven by self-doubt.

Have you ever seen a movie that you thought was good, but left the theater disappointed, because you knew deep down in your heart it could have been great?

He lands a spot on the Suffolk stage at Latitude festival, expecting it to be his big break, but only his friends and a handful of bored kids show up to watch him play.

It'd been such a dystopia if this almost brain-dead, dull at all levels, guy brought their songs first.

A fun setup with good music and a cliche ending .

When I first saw the trailer for this film, I knew exactly what I was going to get: an enjoyable feel good movie reminiscent of the most influential music group of all time.

This is a fairly lightweight but enjoyable romantic comedy with an innovative twist at its centre.

All in all, a very enjoyable movie that I can recommend.

Most intense scene is, Jack hit by the bus!

BORING.

And then BAM one of the most confusing 'romances' I have ever seen takes over for some extremely clunky reasoning, and there's feelings and all that...

So many plot holes that could have and SHOULD have been addressed, but it all got pushed to the side to make way for another cliche romance.

This somehow managed to make it dry and boring, its a impressive in a reverse way

Save your money and wait until it comes online somewhere.

All in all, Yesterday is certainly not a perfect film, but it is perfectly enjoyable for anyone that is a fan of The Beatles, or really music in general, or anyone who just wants to have a good time at the movies.

Boring as hell .

Could have been a great movie, downed by pointless moments.

The ending in of itself was quite intriguing and was not the way I envisioned the film to end.

I really enjoyed it and will definitely rewatch when it comes out on digital!

And yes, most of the songs presented were better when the Beatles did them, but just set that fact aside and enjoy this harmless and entertaining film.

Simplistic yet fascinating.

Other culturally relevant things are also non-existant in the world depicted but anyway, I found this quite funny and a little touching and very entertaining concerning the classic Beatles songs performed during the whole thing.

First it was entertaining, next, it reminded ( me at least) of the power that music has in peoples lives and finally it payed respect to the notion there there is something sacred about what the Beatles brought into the world.

The movie is essentially an extremely bland, boring and predictable love story hiding behind the Beatles music.

With some nice stylistic choices by Danny Boyle, and a nice line in humour, a highly enjoyable use of a great catalogue of music and warm performances from MOST of the cast, I found myself grinning at much of it, with a few guffaws too, as though I was watching a Cute Kittens video or something.

Sorry but a total waste of my time and theres.

Dull, Borning, and Pointless .

Yesterday is enjoyable mostly due to the lead actors and a interesting premise.

Enjoyable homage.

Fast paced and really fun!

It's totally formulaic romcom.

Patel's singing is great, well worth watching

Enjoyable?

However, Hollywood, as usual, got in the way, with Richard Curtis rewriting the story into a predictable rom com.

The continued vanishing of additional pop culture "names" were pointless and didn't generate laughs or add to the plot.

The romance plot line was pretty boring and I thought it ended with a dud.

Rather dull .

Enjoyable Film .

the story felt empty and the best part was getting to hear the beatles songs.

c) It looks bland.

I didn't think it was possible for a film about the Beatles to be utterly joyless, bereft of hope and as tedious as an 8-hour insurance seminar...

The 'what if' scenario that actually could be interesting seems always to be playing second place to Patel and James' bland love story, a 120-min will-they-won't-they...

I loved how the story didn't try an make a blackmail aspect to the 'others' story angle, showing Richard Curtis didn't want to go for the obvious with this film, and instead chose fascinating angles to investigate.

The concept of being the only guy who remembers The Beatles and using that information to gain fame and success is great, but the movie just runs dry of what to do with its feature length running time and falls into predictable cliches and character moments that you see coming a mile away.

But this move never quite realizes its potential, partly because the romantic plot starts feeling cliche, partly because the Beatles were more than just song writing, partly because this story lost its way 2/3 of the way through.

One was the main story of Yesterday which was very innovative and interesting, while the other was much leas creative, just a cliché story seen in many previous films.

That would make the final giveaway of the music that much more powerful as a gesture and it would make their reunion much more compelling.

This is a film that is worth viewing by both young and old, and is worth watching more than once.

Some had an emotional warmth (4 weddings, Notting Hill, About Time) others a bit cheesy but perfectly enjoyable (Love Actually) and a bit netter than merely meh....

Greatest music with fun idea turned down to a boring love flick...

Boring .

Yet, the lead pair and some all-time Beatles classics ensure that Yesterday remains compelling from start to finish.

A very enjoyable and entertaining film .

Good entertaining fun

Let me start by saying that I'm not the biggest fan of musical biopics, because it's rather difficult to write intriguing and surprising elements.

Somewhat the whole premise got resolved in an uninteresting way and most fun character remains the money hungry agent and the parents.

It's boring, both rushed and slow, it's just not an interesting movie.

The direction isn't bad, but it's bland and doesn't really add much to the story.

The movie was entertaining, funny, touching, thought-provoking, and much more.

The arc of the story is pretty predictable, save for a last act diversion which is pretty questionable.

Not the best, but certainly enjoyable .

In the oldest romantic movie cliche, when Jack is gone too long Ellie gets herself another man.

Aside from that, this is a very enjoyable film, through and through.

The other characters as well are rather bland, I didn't remember much about them although I did like Jack's friend Rocky (played by Joel Fry) who Jack brings along as his roadie.

A thoroughly enjoyable film...

funny, cliche and predictble .

I thought this was an unwatchable pile of tosh.

A fascinating storyline based on a "what if" scenario which leaves you thinking.

The story is literally like every other music biopic meets romance plot and is predictable at every turn.

Like all the awkward scenes with Ed Sheeran, and Jack's bland, stereotypical (insert greedy manager here)?

But that means the blackout is a deus ex machina of the most shamelessly contrived sort.

Not as original or funny as it could have been, and some of the supporting cast and cameos felt a bit too much, but enjoyable nonetheless.

The performances for the songs are very enjoyable.

The second half was slow, disjointed and rather boring.

The supporting characters are the biggest problem for me, most of them are extremely unlikable and uninteresting, and more often than not kind of annoying.

The main two leads are wonderful in a fairly predictable love story.

Most fascinating for me is how the frame of the songs suddenly makes this loser feel like a deity to us...

Yesterday is a movie with an intriguing concept, that suffers from poor execution.

This is more about a uninteresting love story rather than a tribute

Predictable, cliche and not satisfying .

Jack's rise to the top singing Beatles songs is done fairly decently, but there are just so many scenes with unneeded dialogue and dead space that the film becomes really dull and tiresome in certain spots.

It's an entertaining film with a lot of heart that many should enjoy and I feel the acting performances and direction give you the characters you want to invest your time in.

The romance is decent, but cliche and overall unremarkable.

The film was surprisingly enticing & engaging despite the plots hole, weirdness, overall undecided execution, plot & script continence.

The pointless subplot romance with his best friend/manager Ellie.

I'd say the biggest flaw is that It often felt too slow paced.

But the lead actor was rather uninspiring and lacked charisma, and the script lacking any true spark.

Enjoyable and refreshing .

It's a simple but enjoyable film, very English in gentle humour.

In Danny Boyle's witty and entertaining Yesterday, the works of the Beatles have been lost in a freak 12 sec global electrical outage.

Interesting premise, never quite got there, boring love story.

It all reflects this complex prism of Boyle's self-insert in impostor syndrome; he began as an enfant-terrible after all so his success may be, on some level, a confusion for him.

This ludicrous script is basically a "romantic comedy" that presents a litany of every cliche in the genre, with an ending that is so saccharine, and so contrived, I almost walked out of the theater (If I were closer to the aisle, I would have).

Some lighthearted humor and pretty formulaic love story is there also along the way.

No story.

The story is entirely predictable and unoriginal.

It could have been something bigger and better, but it went down the standard formula Hollywood predictable way.

I also liked the more mundane things that most people don't notice (like a school teacher dressing like a school teacher, not in new designer labels, and only have one pair of shoes, and not a different pair for eery scene).

Overall, the film is an enjoyable ride.

I highly recommend it.

Coming off the backburner of "Rocketman" which was visually stunning and even having seen "Across The Universe" which had all of its positive praise coming from me about the visuals, it was so lazy.

Funny, Heart-warming and Engaging .

Only once does the music even reflect this narrative in any compelling way, when Jack screams, "Help!

Yes it is entertaining.

It could have done with a bit more rom and a bit more com at time, but still manages to be an enjoyable movie and a perfect reminder of just how great The Beatles are.

Ed Shearman was annoying and seemed pointless.

Took my 13 and 16 year old kids to see it, they enjoyed it as much as I did.

I expected much much more, the movie is predictable, slow and boring.

The story is intriguing about a struggling musician who through a fluke accident is thrust in an alternate universe in which the Beatles don't exist.

* One unexpected character is visited by Jack.

Yesterday's alternate reality is awe inspiring in terms of pulling the blinds of fandom down to reveal the moral testing sacrifices that the music celebrity world requires, managing to test the boundaries of love without diving too far in Hallmark territory.

I really enjoy the execution of an already fascinating idea of a world where the Beatles never existed.

Overall, while Yesterday does sell its concept short for a routine rom-com storyline and some questionable narrative flaws, the charming acting, lighthearted tone and splendid singing performances to make the film enjoyable enough to watch.

As such, I found the first half of the film a lot more enjoyable than the second.

What a let down man, this one had so much potential too but we get a film that makes little sense and slaps us in the face with overdone romance cliche.

It is a huge shame, therefore, that Yesterday slides off the rails, leaving behind its interesting premise to settle as a forgettable and frankly quite dull romcom that feels like lesser work from both Boyle and Curtis.

It's a good movie, with flaws, but worth the watch.

The movie was entertaining, funny, touching, thought-provoking, and much more.

Also, Ana de Armas was stunning in Blade Runner and it would be nice to see her in this otherwise fun movie.

I won't dwell on the mistakes I found, but will say it is worth watching.

It's hard to put into words how enjoyable this movie is.

I would highly recommend it.

Great songs and an enjoyable story delivered by the likeable cast.

Enjoyed it.

An absolute must-see for an enjoyable time even if you really don't know who the Beatles are.

That is the premise of Yesterday (2019), a light-hearted, and often engaging film.

So yes, a good, albeit predictable rom-com that is an enjoyable 90 minutes of entertainment that could have an excellent, renowned film if it was given a little more TLC.

It got pretty boring at times; I kept checking the time to see how much longer.

So predictable .

The romantic aspect was boring.

This was entertaining from the start and never lapsed into a minute of boredom,.

And finally the film had incredibly slow pacing.

Yes, the premise is a bit too similar to 'Goodnight Sweetheart', but other than that this is as enjoyable a film as you could hope to see.

Because of unimportant and uninteresting reasons, an aspiring musician (Patel) discovers he is the only person in the world who remembers The Beatles.

Very enjoyable .

It is clever, witty, innovative and very enjoyable.

The supporting cast is rather bland, and he's pretty much going it alone.

The interesting places that the film could have gone were wasted and replaced by a boring romance and a sappy ending.

This film dows that but what you get is a long drawn out romcom, with little in the way of charm.
