Here is a movie which explores just that idea, where in two lifelong friends explore their last “logical” chance to end their financial woes by making an amateur porn flick which they hope would make it big.

This movie has to be one of the least serious movies I’ve seen this year (along with pineapple express), and it was nicely written and of course funny.

However, in musicals, it is not the story that takes the lead. It is the music, and in this new musical, it is all about the music of the Beatles. Spoken dialogue is minimized, allowing the music and lyrics to shape the narrative. Let me tell you, when I first saw the trailer for this film, I knew I had to see it and has become one of my most anticipated films for 2007. The psychedelic brilliance that is ACROSS THE UNIVERSE…
