In the mid-1960s, Music/TheBeatles were the hottest thing since sliced bread. The four guys from Liverpool not only topped the charts with their music, but they topped the box office with their movie ''Film/AHardDaysNight'' in 1964. So, in 1965, they, director Richard Lester, and producer Walter Shenson got back together to make another movie for Creator/UnitedArtists. The result was ''Help!'

* AffectionateParody: Of the Frachise/JamesBond films.



* ArtisticLicenseReligion: The film is sometimes erroneously taken to be an example of this trope, because it features the goddess Kaili which is "obviously" a misspelling of Kali. However, according to the DVDCommentary, this was done deliberately to avoid UnfortunateImplications; they wanted a goddess who sounded like Kali without actually being her.



* BadBadActing: The Beatles indulge in this occasionally, particularly any time they're supposed to be acting like they're having a carefree, fun time and instead just deliver the most stilted laughs humanly possible. (as mentioned above, they were usually stoned, to the point that many times they disregarded memorizing the script at all)

** Not a bit like Cagney.



* TheCallsAreComingFromInsideTheHouse: Played for laughs when John uses this to prank the other Beatles with an alarm clock.
* {{Caltrops}}: Parodied. The Kaili cult's disguised Harrods van has a front headlight which issues forth a stream of thumbtacks.



* CircularDriving: In-movie variation - in the Bahamas, the police chief welcomes the Scotland Yard detective and presents a squad of policemen for inspection - the squad consists of only four men, the last in the row ducking and heading to the front of the row as the other two pass by.



* ClothingDamage: A male, and hilariously gratuitous, version occurs when the villains attack the boys with a booby-trapped hand dryer that starts sucking away their clothes.
* CoconutMeetsCranium: In the Bahamas, one of Clang's mooks waits up in a tree and hurls a coconut at Ringo (actually Paul in a Ringo mask), knocking him out.

* CreativeClosingCredits: During the end credits, a many-faceted gem filters the cast members into multiple images as they file past - on the soundtrack "The Barber of Seville" overture plays as The Beatles hum, laugh, and talk over it.



* {{Dedication}}: The film is dedicated to Elias Howe, inventor of the sewing machine. It's an idiosyncratic film.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The film made a big deal of being in color - then, at the beginning, the scene shifts from a death-cult sacrifice being cut short to the band playing the title tune in black-and-white...turns out it's a film the cult is watching.
* DeliberateValuesDissonance: It may seem disconcerting to see The Beatles (especially Lennon, although it's very obvious from his facial expression and tone of voice that he is mocking such attitudes) referring to "filthy Eastern ways" regarding their cultist pursuers, but all the deliberately stilted dialog in the movie is meant to invoke old movie and adventure novel cliches.



* DullSurprise: Played for laughs when The Beatles fall victim to a hand-dryer trap, Ringo declares "There's more here than meets the eye!" Over the caption "Everyone laughs at Ringo's sudden apprehension", John and George exchange a long run of flat ho-hos. They all retain this quiet reaction to most every bizarre event through the movie.
* EasyImpersonation: While the Beatles are at Scotland Yard, the bad guys telephone for them. The Inspector plays Ringo, bragging at being "a bit of a mimic, you know, Creator/JamesCagney..." and proceeds with a ludicrous impression peppered with 'gear, fab'...George smirks "Not a bit like Cagney!"
* EverythingIsLouderWithBagpipes: The Beatles once again run afoul of the pursuing Eastern thug cult at the London riverfront, disguised as a Highland band, with a bagpipe that spews sacrificial red paint.

* HesGotAWeapon: "It's a thingie! A fiendish thingie!"
* HesitantSacrifice: The plot revolves around Ringo being marked as a cult's human sacrifice - after some hair's breadth escapes, the others suggest over his objections that he should 'take one for the team'.

* HighPriest: Clang, who at one point chats amicably with an Anglican priest about the importance of human sacrifice to focus the congregation.
* HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure: As The Beatles record a song in the middle of Salisbury Plain with the Army protecting them, the bad guys burrow underneath, setting a massive amount of explosives labelled in military-grade stencil "Equal to exactly one millionth
of the time during recording explosives exploded in one week of the Second World War".
* HumanSacrifice: Played for laughs. Spending the whole movie trying to kill Ringo, who has a sacrificial ring stuck on his finger, the cult leader muses to himself "Perhaps if we gave away free tickets to the youth organization annual sacrifice and dinner dance, all
this film they do have could be avoided. It's a song aptly titled ''Act Naturally''. very real problem!" just before he turns a flame thrower on the band.

* MagicPants: An odd variation occurs where Paul is accidentally injected with a short-term shrinking solution - he shrinks out of his clothes and uses a gum wrapper as a ModestyTowel, then he manages to grow back completely inside his suit without as much as a skewed tie.
* MindControlWindow: In an scene dropped from the final movie, Music/TheBeatles, at an acting school, are put into a trance by droning music played by Clang and his thugs.

* NotAMask: After the cult members get rounded up in a snare knocking out who they think is Ringo (but is first Paul, then John in a latex mask) Algernon finds the ''real'' Ringo, first pulling at his face a few times before yanking him away by the nose.
--> I can't understand - they kept pullin' at me nose! And mine of all noses!



* PaperThinDisguise: The Beatles go to the airport in fake beards and mustaches to avoid being noticed by Cult members. John even went so far as to stay in a wheelchair to avoid recognition, far from simply wearing a cloth cap.

* PottyEmergency: As Algernon makes his way to the Beatles in a motorized rubber raft he tells his lackey "You should've thought of that before we left!"



* PublicDomainSoundtrack: The film was a showcase for a lot of Beatles songs, and much of the soundtrack was their tunes done in a Franchise/JamesBond styleóbut then they also used Wagner's 'Lohengrin', Tchaikovsky's '1812 Overture', Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy', and Rossini's 'Barber of Seville'.



* RidiculouslyLongPhoneNumber: In a surreal comedy bit, John dials one of these from his below-ground resting area in the Beatles' house to set off Paul, George and Ringo's alarm clocks late at night.



* ShirtlessScene: The Beatles, taking refuge in a bathroom, get attacked by a hand-dryer that conveniently sucks up most of their clothing, George's shirt in particular. And that's not even getting into the part where Paul shrinks and his clothes don't...

* StickyFingers: The Beatles visit a jeweller seeking help to remove a ring stuck on Ringo's finger - in the background, George casually pockets several bits of merchandise.
* StonerFlick: The Beatles were stoned off their asses during the making of it, and the non sequiturs and other ridiculous bits are far more entertaining.
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: In an attempt to remove a stuck ring from his finger, Ringo goes to a MadScientist who straps him to a device that runs current through him to enlarge the molecules of metal objects. When it doesn't work the scientist opts for surgery, but is thwarted, then, toward movie's end, he has Ringo strapped down on a yacht, ready to try again.

Another one is inside the area covered by an electrified cage somewhere in the Bahamas...
* TwoFacedAside: When Ringo is about to have his finger shrunk with a potion so a magic ring can be removed, George speculates that there might be some insurance they could get out of it. John indignantly says "I wouldn't think of such a thing!", before whispering "Find out, eh?"
