Format: DVD
"A Hard Day's Night" is, and always will be, one of the greatest films ever made. Its irreverent, original comedy ("He's very clean") has never been matched. The Beatles let their natural charisma and wit carry them through and, in 1964, that would have been enough if they just stood still for 90 minutes. Director Dick Lester was the perfect choice: he understood what to do, providing the viewer with the feeling of suffocation that the Beatles had to endure due to their fans and the sheer relief that they feel as they burst out of the fire escape into a field where nobody knows they are ("We're out!").

The comic lines still hold out today, a rare feat for a forty year old film. Indeed, even the slapstick parts hold out thanks to the Beatles's knowing acting. Many critics have compared the Fab Four to the Marx Bros. Fair enough, but I bet Lennon would have loved to have been as sneering as Groucho in the film. Still, he carries off his role with aplomb, especially the parts when he does get to be a cheeky rascal (note his snorting the Coke bottle on the train) and the ad libs (if they are ad libs) are fantastic ("Alright Noddy?"). Ringo is as natural as critics made out: he belonged on screen, the only Fab that seemed to truly ignore the cameras. George, too, carries his laconic, cool style seeing the whole thing as a bit of a laugh ("Well, I'll have a bash"). Indeed, Macca is not actually as bad as people make out. He tries too hard but, when he lets go, is genuinely pretty good: "I'd ask you myself, only I'm shy".

Therefore, the film is brilliant. But the DVD is not, hence the four stars. The fact is, the extras look as if they have been made for a 60+ pensioner audience. Every single one is of somebody talking.

This was it. A debut for the Beatles on the big screen. The result. Pure genius. Films don't get better than this with its original wit and humour its a delight from start to end. The fab four display a natural talent for the camera especially Starr who steals the show, but also Lennon who's many ad libs are all there to be witnessed.
Director Dick Lester had impressed before (Running, Jumping, Standing Still film) and lost his way after (Superman 3!!!)but this film was the peak of his career, his direction nothing short of perfection.
Highlights include the hotel room scenes, Ringo's lonely scenes, and even a concert at the end with fab songs. But for me the best parts are on the train with the Fab Four encountering and causing havoc!!! There's also plenty of songs all the way through to keep you satisfied such as 'If I Fell' and 'I Should Have Known Better'.
Abe Lincoln once said something like "A day without a laugh is a day lost". If that's true, then A Hard Day's Night adds an extra day to the year each time you watch it. For brilliant laughs and an all round great time, watch it. Then watch it again. Until you become addicted to its charm. Comedy at its best.

Format: DVD
Although the Beatles themselves expressed disappointment at the movie, it's not because of a lack of quality. The Beatles come across as somewhat unbelievable gagsters, but let's face it... it's not like you want to watch it for the dense characterisation.
Where the movie excels is as a comedy... if music hadn't come so readily to them, they could well have passed for modern day (comparatively at least) Marx Brothers. Although the script is somewhat rough in places, it has a constant energy and vitality to it... much like the music of the Beatles themselves.
The soundtrack is pure gold quality... some of the finest Beatles songs ever penned acompany the Wacky Antics.
Well worth seeing even if you're only a casual Beatles fan... a jewel of a movie, and much better than their later 'Help' and 'Yellow Submarine' forays into the visual arts.
And of course, one musn't forget Paul's grandfather. He's a very clean old man.

Format: DVD
Richard Lester worked with the Beatles to produce a clever, touching, visually interesting, humourous and well-acted film that makes the most of the fantastic music and the Beatlemania and uses wonderful English character actors circa 1964 to bounce off the boys' Liverpudlian wit.

The film was obviously a showcase for the music and to introduce the boys' personalities. I like the extras: George Martin is such a great guy that you can't help but be entranced by anything he says, and I love seeing Brian Epstein footage because he was sneaky but extremely clever as a pop promoter.

A lovely, nostalgic ride back to when things seemed a touch simpler.

I am a 15 girl who has lately been feeling she has been born in the wrong era, and after watching this movie...i realised i was right.
Not only do i have the joys of hearing some classic beatles songs, but i also get to experience John Lennons dry sense of humour and George Harrisons gorgeous-ness to the max!
There are some classic cameo's in this film that even i can recognise, the only problem i have to console myself of, is that George met Patti Boyd while he was filming this (boo sucks!) But otherwise i would say its definatly one of the best films i have seen.
(watch out for John lennons hillarious antics in the bathtub!)
