Rating: 2/5 -- If there's a tray full of food within camera range, rest assured that somebody will knock it over. If a stuck-in-the-elevator-on-the-eve-of-an-important-event routine presents itself, rest assured that its staging will be tried and true.

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Zemeckis never condescends to those gripped by Beatlemania, preferring to play up each person's inventiveness, exuberance, and wide-eyed innocence (well, OK, the latter maybe not when Allen's character starts licking that guitar while it gently sleeps). Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- A marvelously punchy film, one that builds energy fast and keeps it up, even in the most prosaic scenes. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- ...a strong first effort from a filmmaker who would go onto much bigger and better things. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Apr 21, 2019
In the best scenes, Zemeckis suggests how the Beatles' blend of irreverence, romance and innocence encouraged a kind of youthful rebellion that was almost completely sanctioned. Full Review
Time Out
Feb 9, 2006
Rating: 3/4 -- Robert Zemeckis' "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" was a box office bomb, despite being a perfectly delightful and effervescent comedy that doesn't dwell on Beatlemania as much as surf on it for laughs. Full Review
