BEATLES FANS... Sgt. Pepper question

I'm sure I'm the only one here
who knew NOTHING about this movie...
eek

I was trying to research Minnie Riperton
to see which album of Quincy's she appears on
and it gave me a IMDB link which listed
her as a "guest of Heartland" on the movie
(along with countless others like The Bee Gees, Curtis Mayfield
George Benson, LABELLE (sans Patti), Aerosmith, EW+F) WOW

first off... I never knew there was
a movie sad I knew about Yellow Submarine
and A Hard Day's Night, but not about Sgt. Pepper

there's also an additional soundtrack?


I've had this album for quite some time
but I'd love to hear the soundtrack
and see the movie too

what are your views? is it worth it? confused
I mean I'm GOING to see it, regardless
partially to look for all these cameos

I hear there are some kick ass performances!

Well, I saw the movie countless times when I was a kid. I had the album too.

The movie was voted (by a lot of ppl, fans and critics alike) as one of the worst movies ever made.

Let's put it this way...The soundtrack is 100x better than the film itself.

Highs:
Aerosmith's cover of "Come Together"
Billy Preston's cover of "Get Back!"
EWF's cover of "Got to get you into my life"

Lows:
Alice Cooper's cover of "Because"
Steve Martin's cover of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"

The Bee Gee's and Peter Frampton's covers are.... ehh..ok.
"I Want you (she's so heavy)" is in my opinion the best one.

^^^merci cool

I cannot wait to see this

I tend to hold a special place
in my heart for the underdogs
i.e. Glitter lol
so I'm sure I will love this

just the fact that all these great
artists are in it somewhere
that's excitement enough for me
just to play Where's Waldo

The other ppl you mentioned at the top of your post...were only in the movie at the very end if I remember correctly...in a reprise of the song "Sgt Pepper"...


Minnie Riperton, Curtis Mayfield, George Benson and LABELLE (sans Patti) were not in the movie itself.


Here's the trailer to give you a little taste:

that's what I was assuming
I kinda figured they didn't have speaking parts
because they are listed as "Guest of Heartland"

thanx alot for the trailer cool
