Sorry to necro - but just saw a trailer for this on the Toronto DVD I was just watching.  I remember it from many years ago and will have to grab a copy, the trailer was great - the prefab four :)

Can I just say, this documentary about Dirk, Stig, Nasty and Barry brings back many fond memories.

I find something new to laugh at each time I view it. Last time (aside from spotting your avatar!) it was the "You Need Feet" song...which I was slightly distressed to learn is NOT a Neil Innes original. Apparently it was written by one of the Carry On gang.

Anyone who's never seen it: Go ahead, spare an hour and watch on youtube!

I've got it on DVD and it's brilliant. The fact that George is in it is even funnier. And Mick Jagger's bit always cracks me up, too :lol:

I first saw this in the late 70's- very late at night- I believe, after Saturday Night Live. I thought, at first, I had stumbled across some little-known Beatles film, but then soon realized it was a spoof. That said, the songs in it are great. "Let's Be Natural" is my favorite. The spoof on "Yoko" is hilarious. In fact, I think I'll go watch it now. (I have the DVD.)

There's more here than meets the eye.

The Rutles 2 was called Can't Buy Me Lunch. I think Eric Idle made it without the others and it mostly just recycles material from the original but with extra celebrity interviews.

This pretty well sums it up.

Don't waste your time buying it, just watch it on YouTube  (if you can sit through it all)  paul-mccartney

Found via Reddit, someone made a full album mixing Rutles songs like Love.

Can anyone make a list of all the references parodied? I think I missed a lot. I got that they changed some though like making it george (stig) is dead instead of Paul.

Just saw the movie and I loved it! Only a few minutes in when they showed Chastity for a moment I knew it was going to be great. For those who know a lot about the Beatles history (most of us) all the little jokes are particularly funny.

Some parts I particularly liked were:
(Do not read if you don't want to spoil jokes)


The Rat Keller.

(Bill) Murray the K

Blind Lemon Pye ("after I heard The Rutles I became a musician, I've been starving ever since.)

"He was born in Liverpool, grew up in Liverpool, was even married in Liverpool, and of course his football team is Everton."

Barry's wedding.

@Ron Nasty's signature.

The fact that tea was their parallel to marijuana, and that they alluded to the policeman who busted many musicians by planting drugs.

How Nasty sings Hold My Hand at the end of Love Life, just like She Loves You appears at the end of All You Need Is Love.

How they lead up to what Beatle fans would assume is Leggy's death then had him go to Australia.

The press conference in a shower. And the historical joke many may miss about Ron and Chastity's "Honeymoon rally in Nuremberg."

Ron Decline, "people would rather commit suicide than meet him."

All the Stig is Dead clues.

And of course, George's cameo!

Pretty much everything!

I might watch the second one, but it apparently doesn't have such good reviews.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

A bit more information.  After Python finished, Eric Idle did his own half hour series called Rutland Weekend Television, based on the notion of this provincial British TV channel which got half an hour of national TV time every week (London Weekend Television took over the commercial network from Thames TV every weekend - at the time there was only the commercial network and BBC on UK TV, only 3 channels).  Rutland Weekend Television was broadly Python-type sketch material, which included George coming on one week and doing The Pirate Song.

There was an episode which featured the Rutles in a b/w spoof of the Can't Buy Me Love-era Beatles.  This sketch was so successful that Idle decided to work it up into a larger piece: this involved recasting the Rutles (David Battley, a regular in the TV series and one of the Rutles in the TV sketch, didn't feature in All You Need Is Cash, not sure about the others).

For me, there are two huge joys about the Rutles project - one is the accuracy of Neil Innes' pastiches.  It's almost like having an extra Beatles album.  And the other is the huge affection with which they have recreated so much of what they are spoofing, down to what they are wearing on the rooftop sequence.  It's such a shame that a) McCartney was mardy about it (perhaps because Eric Idle aped his coy to-camera looks too well?) and b) there was the plagiarism action.

What I read somewhere (possibly in Howard Soames' Paul bio?) is that, supposedly, Paul was especially annoyed that Idle incorporated (and parodied) the whole Paul-is-dead episode into the narrative. Apparently Paul had bad memories from that time and no sense of humour about that particular aspect of the Beatles legend. Or, at least he didn't find it funny in 1978 or '79 or whenever the film was screened for him.
