THE RUTLES is a hilarious send-up of the myth and reality--mostly the myth--of the Beatles. Created by Monty Python's Eric Idle and produced by SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE creator Lorne Michaels, this mockumentary contains cameos from Mick Jagger, Paul Simon, Ron Wood, Bill Murray, and even one of the mocked himself, George Harrison. To make the comedy all the more exciting, this version was banned from United States television. Songs include: "Hold My Hand," "Number One," "Love Life," "Living in Hope," "Get Up and Go," "Cheese and Onions," "Doubleback Alley," and many others. It is not a stretch to say that without THE RUTLES--ALL YOU NEED IS CASH, there might never have been a SPINAL TAP.
"...The movie is both a razor-edged needling and a sweet homage to an era when love was indeed all anyone seemed to need..."
- David Browne, Entertainment Weekly
"[An] unrestrained deconstruction of the group's legend and perfectly nuanced send-up of the 1970s Tony Palmer rock-doc."
- Mojo Staff, Mojo
