Not quite up to Hard Days Night,
This review is from: Help [DVD]  [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Basing the film around Ringo wasn't a bad idea, but the hamminess of the supporting cast is only salvaged by the sublime soundtrack.
The Alps sequences are amusing and nostalgic and it's interesting to note who can and can't act: Ringo is actually the best actor in my humble view (even better than John was taking parts in 'real' films)
However, the music is probably the real redeeming quality in this very patchy film which lacks much of the wit of their 1964 effort with Richard Lester.
It's sort of like Carry On but without the good acting, compensated for by a cracking set of songs.
Worth watching if you're a fan.
