Can we include TV series? It almost never gets mentioned, but there was a BBC sitcom in the 90s called Get Back that ran for two series. Each episode title was named after a Beatles song, and all the characters were named after Beatles characters (Bungalow Bill, Martin, Jojo, Prudence, Rocky, Sadie etc).
The cast included Ray Winstone and a young Kate Winslet. She’s in the opening scene here:
There are loads more episodes on YouTube, I’ve just discovered. It’s not all that funny though.

Bringing the mood down a little, prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi’s book Helter Skelter about the Manson murders, has twice been turned into US TV movies. First in 1976, when it was split into two parts and shown across two nights. In several countries a more explicit version received a theatrical release. It was remade from a slightly different angle in 2004.
The Manson murders were also the subject of 2008’s feature-length documentary The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter .
Equally horrific, there’s the 1978 Stigwood Organisation’s Peter Frampton/Bee-Gees fronted Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
And, least we forget, there’s 2007’s Across The Universe .

The movie title Good Will Hunting always makes me think of ‘The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill ‘.
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.
