Monty Pythoner Eric Idle's parody of the Beatles phenomenon is brilliant and a must for fans. The mockumentary follows the The Rutles–-Dirk (Eric Idle), Barry (John Halsey), Stig, (Ricky Fataar), and Nasty (Neil Innes)–a Beatles-like group as they rise to success from their early days in Liverpool to worldwide fame. Songs include "Hold My Hand," 'Love Life," "Get Up and Go," "Yellow Submarine Sandwich," and many more.

Even a parking garage can be a place to meet someone of the opposite sex as advertising executive Teddy Pierce (Gene Wilder) discovers.
