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
I Wanna Hold Your Hand re-creates precisely the excitement the Beatles let loose 14 years ago; it transports the audience back to the eye of a phenomenal social hurricane. Full Review
"I Wanna Hold Your Hand" is a pellmell slapstick impression of what some of those fans went through to order to get near their idols. Full Review
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.
New York Times
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
Capital Times (Madison, WI)
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
Director Robert Zemeckis' feature debut truly encapsulates that time.
A comedy chronicling 24 hours in the lives of six teenagers from Maplewood, New Jersey, who descend on Manhattan the day The Beatles premiered on the "Ed Sullivan Show," February 8, 1964. Each has a personal agenda: Grace Corrigan is looking for her big break as a photographer; Rosie Petrofsky is the quintessential Beatles fan, and Janice Goldman and Tony Smerko, would do anything to see the performance end in disaster.
