IF the film didn't have the Beatles and just had some actors playing the Beatles in this film, would it still be good?

Why did they make John McCartney Paul's maternal grandpa when he shares the same last name and Mary McCartney was dead at the time of the movie so she would of been unable to tell Paul to look after him.

I can't answer the former question, but as for the latter, you must keep in mind that they weren't being fully factual with the storyline and characters. They weren't John Winston Lennon, James Paul McCartney , George Harrison , and Richard Starkey-- they were four characters named John, Paul, George, and Ringo, based upon the real people but freely changeable to suit the film's needs. 

In other words, it was a film, not a documentary.

So does that mean in ADN/Help universe, Paul could be born out of wedlock?

I don't think its stated in the film that Paul was born in wedlock.

This is reading between the lines since his last name is the same as his maternal grandpa's.

I don't recall anyone saying in the film that he was the maternal grandfather. Granted, Paul said something along the lines of "my mother thought the trip would do him good" or something like that. But that hardly establishes him as the maternal grandfather. Am I missing something or forgetting a line in the script that says he is?

It was more implied by his mother saying it would do him good.

I found sources for his dad's dad and he apparently never died. Neither did his mom's dad. Hmmm. . . Something fishy is going on with the McCartney family.

Though his grandpa is named John McCartney but his mom's dad is from Ireland unlike his dad's dad.

It's not real life. It's scripted, a movie, a fictional version of The Beatles. They are playing themselves but NOT playing themselves, dig? ahdn_ringo_09
