Reviews:
"THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK supplies a month-by-month account of the band's brief tenure as a live band. Predictably full of great performing footage and incorporating new interviews with the too-few surviving witnesses..." - 08/16/2016 Hollywood Reporter


"It's no surprise that a documentary on the Beatles and their music is a treat, but the fact that it is not an unalloyed pleasure is a bit unexpected." - 09/15/2016 Los Angeles Times


"Ron Howard is a studio craftsman who specializes in crowd-pleasing entertainment...THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK focuses on the band during their crowd-pleasing years: the era between 1962 and 1966 when they toured the world, delivering smiling and effervescent performances..." - 09/15/2016 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "[The film] catches the exhilarating kick of Beatlemania as the band toured 15 countries from 1963 to 1966....The documentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band's delight in making it." - 09/15/2016 Rolling Stone


"[J]ust try watching it without smiling.....Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, the surviving Beatles, provide fresh interviews, and John Lennon and George Harrison are heard in clips, all of them reflecting on what it was like to ride the beast." - 09/15/2016 New York Times
