If you’re a fan of The Beatles and/or musicals, chances are you’ve already seen and enjoyed “Across The Universe”. I like The Beatles, but I think this movie is a big lame excuse to introduce 30 of their songs in a long, sometimes uneven story (there are characters named Prudence and Jude in case you’re wondering). The music is good, but you don’t need a movie to figure out how great The Beatles were. So I guess the best way to enjoy “Across The Universe” is to close your eyes and enjoy the music, or better yet, skip it and buy the soundrack instead.
Fun fact: “This film was released in the United States on John Lennon’s birthday (October 9th).”
