This review is from: The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash [DVD] (DVD)
I remember hearing about The Rutles from a friend (a disgrunted Beatles fan). So obviously I had to see it! I can see why this upset a few of the Fab Four's fans, but maybe they missed the point - this is an extremely affectionate parody of the world's greatest band, set to a perfect pastiche score by Neil Innes. It's not without problems - stretching the joke to cover the entire Rutles career makes it a tad too long and contrived, and there's a couple of forgettable scenes with Saturday Night Live alumni along for the ride who add nothing - but this is still comic genius and very funny. Highly recommended!
