Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band WOOf! 1978 (PG)

“Ripoff” would be putting it kindly. A classic album by one of the greatest rock bands of all time deserves the respect of not having a starstudded extravaganza “filmization” made of it. Gratuitous, weird casting, bad acting give it a surreal feel. And the Bee Gees? Please. A nadir of '70s popu lar entertainment. ♫Sgt.
