A Hard Day's Night (1964)

Hmm... well, this is less of a film and more an excuse for John, Paul, George and Ringo to mess about and play a few songs. Spotting all the stars of the time who appear in the film is quite fun, and Wilfrid Bramwell is good for a laugh as Paul's grandfather, a criminal and massive wind-up merchant.

There's very little plot, the dialogue sounds like it was written by a schoolboy on the back of a cornflakes packet, and it's very disjointed. But, at the same time, it has a certain joyous abandon, the occasional funny moments and of course some great songs. If you like the Beatles, you'll love it - if like me you're somewhat lukewarm about the Fab Four, you'll probably still enjoy it to some extent.
