Friday OT: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Special Edition, Starring Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees

Laurence Griffiths

1. One of the gold standards of bad movies is Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a late 1970s disco-era musical featuring the music of the Beattles and starring Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees (as Billy Shears and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band), George Burns (as Mr. Kite, the mayor of Pepperland), Steve Martin (as villain Maxwell's Silver Hammer (no it does not make any sense)), Aerosmith (as a random corporate sellout band), and whole bunch of 1970s celebrities in cameos. The movie was essentially just an excuse to give Beatles music the disco treatment and for a bunch of 1970s famous people to get together and do an insane amount of hard drugs. There is no real plot, just a series of music videos haphazardly arranged in an order that might suggest some story about a small town music group making good, selling out, finding redemption, and then having Billy Preston magically appear as some sort of angel to raise the lead singer's glass-coffin encased cute girlfriend from the dead (her name? Strawberry Fields, natch). It was an all-around a horrible idea that was horribly executed.

What movie, show, or other piece of pop culture did you think would be horrible but then turned out even worse than you had imagined? The "Dayton Moore Royals" is ineligible.
