Perhaps not every single joke lands perfectly, but the ones that do are jaw dropping in their hilarity, and the film has a consistent flavour of genuine entertainment. 'The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash' is a loving parody of who else but The Beatles, led largely by famed Monty Python member Eric Idle. The film is full of surprises castwise, as it contains cameos from the likes of Bill Murray. John Belushi, Paul Simon, Gilda Radner, Mick Jagger, and even George Harrison himself (albeit a very disguised George Harrison), who is well documented as having loved this classic spoof of The Beatles, among many other surprising faces. The music is amazingly done as it perfectly captures the many sounds of the original Beatles while still straying away from copying the exact chords, which is something many parodies of songs seem to refrain from doing. Anyone w/a stronger knowledge of The Beatles and their history and music will have a ball noticing the various clever references and in-jokes throughout this mock-rockumentary, while even viewers who are less familiar w/the band will have plenty to laugh along w/, as the film plays around w/general absurdity and silliness while containing a certain wit found in few other parodies of its kind.
