I don't buy many movie DVDs but this is one I had to have to watch over and over. This is one of my favourite movies of all time.

Ooof. I hate how much I enjoyed this. It's basically Moulin Rouge, with a bit of Forest Gump, some Terry Gilliam, and Pee Wee's Playhouse all blendered in with a 1/2 tab of acid. So much of it is AWFUL. But some of it was surprisingly…

Plays more like a series of short music videos than an actual movie. Music generally very good ( under direction of T Bone Burnett), lots of visually interesting effects and choreography. Plot and characters a muddled choppy mess…

I'm a huge musical fan from way back Oliver Twist, West Side Story, Grease I and 2, as well as The Muppet Movie. Saw Rock of Ages with Tom Cruise and I figured Across the Universe is the English version of it and yes it was. Good cultural…

Such an amazing movie, truly fantastic. Wonderful music.

I guess the point is to sell some Beatles music to young people. The storyline is not much, the acting is lame, and the tie-in to the music is tenuous at best. Didn't hate it, but can't think of anything nice to say.

What starts out looking like an amateur high school operetta gradually builds into an unexpectedly mature piece of cinema with strong performances throughout and a soundtrack that makes clever use of all those classic Beatles songs. The…

Integrating familiar songs works very well. But the script is garbage.

I LOVED this film and I'm of an age where that makes perfect sense, but my 21 year old daughter loved it too and has watched it over and over. AND my 10 yr. old daughter loves it just as much! This film is for those of us who love music.

Julie Taymor:I love you! This is such an enjoyable tribute to the creativity of the Beatles with great cinematography and casting.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Possibly the only movie I have watched 3 times. Fantastic! Of course, I'm of an age where the music, the events, the locations all resonate.

A treat...well done with lots of interesting special features.

I wasn't too sure what to expect when I read the blurb on the case, but took it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised, this was a very well done movie, and the actors did great jobs portraying teens in the turbulent '60s.

A feast for the eyes, as well as the ears.

If you want The Beatles without The Beatles, you got that here. Ditto for actors in their twenties pretending to be teenagers, and a lot of slow-motion kissing and hair-tossing. Every bit as good as the Bee Gee's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely…

2nd x, I gave it a 0 the 1st time, perhaps didn't appreciate it enough for it's true value. Although it is (still) a musical (as stated in the previous review), it Features Joe Cocker and Bono, and for that it gets a full point right off…

Julie Taymor has envisioned the sixites in a way that is a delight to experience. The Beatles soundtrack sure sounds nice.

Very fun movie, 2nd disk has lots of extra features. Only complaint is the movie should be shortened by about 15 mins.

This film is extraordinary. It is extremely artistic, thought provoking, and has tons of substance. I would highly recommend this movie, especially to fans of the Beatles. This is a must see film for any lover of good music, and great…

As a huge Beatles fan i was expecting to throw things at the TV due to the possibility of these actors ruining their songs. Well, my TV is still intact. I was delightfully surprised at how the songs were performed and interwoven into the…

This movie was not that great. It's basically a group of young adults getting high and singing Beatles songs.
