2 stars Well it's not the English Patient.

When you take LSD and make a screenplay based on your experiences, the results can be.. Interesting. The Magical Mystery Tour movie could do with an accompanying guide book or an audio commentary track, just so you know what the Hell is going on. Not a conventional movie by any means. It's best to just let go and enjoy the visuals and music. A proper mindset is required.

It's not the best movie. It can be enjoyable. Definitely an acquired taste. There is no way you can look at it like a traditional movie and therefore I can only recommend it to true fans of the Beatles and people interested in alternative/experimental movies (and to all you psychedelic weirdos, of course).

The rating is more of a warning. You can still get five stars worth of entertainment here.
