Imagine waking up in a world where everything is the same, with one exception: Nobody has ever heard of the Beatles or any of their songs. 

As fortune would have it, you're a talented singer-songwriter. Would you be tempted to perform "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Back in the U.S.S.R." and "Let It Be" et al., to increasingly bigger audiences, and go along on a Magical Mystery Tour catapulting you to overnight stardom? 

After a promising first hour Yesterday plunks one wrong note after another (including one particularly sour interlude), and eventually collapses under the weight of impossible expectations. - Two and a half stars
