"Welly, welly, well ! Considering other British films like Clockwork Orage about a similar period this is as safe as you can get. The idea here is not to annoy anyone, except perhaps the average British public composed primarily by mum, dad and the kids. The bottom line is that a few pretty boys and girls from the right side of town have taken up the task revive a British un-classic Working Class Hero Mr Lennon himself. No matter how much the superb Scott Thomas and the other woman try this is extremely suitable for an official Commonwealth performance. However, the mere mention of the towering artistic figure of John Lennon is capable of anything and here it deliveres as usual. John, you survived 'Nowwhere Boy'. Your reputation is intact."
