ReviewSource Film Threat
Review "Help!" is one of those movies that can go either way on you. If, after about twenty or so minutes, you aren't impressed with its almost divine silliness, you should go ahead and abort. You're not ready to see it yet. The movie has often been criticized for under-using its greatest natural resource, the Beatles, and while it's true that it's more Richard Lester's vision than the group's, it must be noted that Lester's anarchic absurdity and quick cut camera gags make for a pretty good whole..."Help!" plays like the original version of "Austin Powers". The tone is the same, they are mocking the same James Bond type films, and both films resonate with fashion, music and joy...The Beatles as a group are still pretty charming and biting, but it's not too hard to figure out that they made this movie right after Bob Dylan introduced them to marijuana. They look for the most part stoned but happy, practically laughing out loud at the constant ongoing foolishness...The film also has fun with the Beatles' home life. It seems that they all live in the same gigantic house with vending machines and four separate entrances...If they had felt like it, they could have probably been the English version of the Marx brothers. As it is, they take us one step closer to Monty Python.

Review The Beatles were probably the best and the most commercially successful rock band of all time. You can argue that the Rolling Stones or the Clash were better, or that the Grateful Dead sold more tickets. But the Beatles had the greater cultural influence, and there is no denying that they recorded at least a hundred outstanding songs, which demonstrated considerable variety...While later albums such as "Sgt. Pepper's" and "Abbey Road" are more popular today, the Beatles actually recorded their very best songs in 1965. "Rubber Soul" contained "Girl" and "In My Life". The "Help!" soundtrack delivered "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and "Ticket to Ride"...it is during the songs that the film is at its best. The songs are even better than those in "A Hard Day's Night", which hardly seems possible. There's only seven of them, but that's enough for John, Paul and George to each get a chance to sing lead...Richard Lester would later direct John Lennon in the unsuccessful anti-war comedy "How I Won the War" (1967), and Paul McCartney for his 1991 concert tour documentary "Get Back". Fans of Lester's slapstick style might want to see "The Three Musketeers" and "The Four Musketeers", his best films from the 1970s.

Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier A wild and wonderful comedy that highlights the Beatles comic timing and charisma.
Fred Topel, About.com Great Beatles movie full of fun, irreverent humor...
Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress Brilliant, elaborate, mildly subversive follow-up to A Hard Day's Night. Lester at his best.
Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies Wildly funny and what a soundtrack!
Steve Crum, Video-Reviewmaster.com ...a fun romp with the legendary Beatles.
