Synopsis


Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Pop star Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees star in this musical, loosely based on the popular 1967 Beatles album Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In the story, Billy Shears, who now heads the Lonely Hearts Club Band, is the grandson of the famous Sergeant Pepper. He is confronted by the need to save the magical musical instruments of the band from the bad guys, led by music tycoon B.D. Brockhurst (Donald Pleasance), who want to steal them. If they succeed, the magic which infuses "Heartland U.S.A." will disappear. Among the many Beatles' songs performed in the film by well-known popular artists are: "She's Leaving Home" (Bee Gees, Jay MacIntosh, John Wheeler), "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" (Steve Martin), "Got To Get You into My Life (Earth, Wind & Fire), "When I'm 64" (Sandy Farina), "Come Together" (Aerosmith), "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" (sung by the Bee Gees, Paul Nicholas), "With a Little Help from My Friends" (Peter Frampton, the Bee Gees), "Fixing a Hole" (George Burns), and "Get Back" (Billy Preston). ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    Loved it!!

    A movie based on a hit album doesn't really stand a chance, in my opinion, especially when no one in it has a speaking part. Who's idea was that?? In spite of that, I loved this movie. Saw it when it first came out with my little daughter and just ordered it again recently to relive the fun. Loved all the musical stars in it, particularly the Bee Gees. Peter Frampton was cute, too. Also, Billy Preston, Earth, Wind & Fire, etc. did an admirable turn. It wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but there are many who did enjoy it for what it was--fluffy fun entertainment with a lot of big name stars. Nothing to be ashamed of, although most who were in it later cringed if it was mentioned. (The Bee Gees, for instance, begged to be released from it while it was still being filmed.)

    This movie has phenomenal music from The Beatle's album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road, most of the songs are performed by Peter Frampton and The Bee Gees but there are many other artists that also make cameos. I'm only 19 but I love love LOVE the music of this era. This is a great family film that can be enjoyed by all ages! Check it out. (p.s. Peter Frampton is sexy ;)

    Great Classic staring Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees, George Burns, Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Earth Wind and Fire, Billy Preston and many many more Singers and Acters of the time. It's a great musical that brought back memories of the 70's that I had almost forgotten. Thank you BestBuy for keeping it in stock.
