While Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s take on "Come Together" and Music/EarthWindAndFire's cover of "Got to Get You Into My Life" are well-regarded, this movie also gave us George Burns singing "Fixing a Hole" and SteveMartin performing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". The silly story and frequent poor match-ups of songs to situations render it all SoBadItsGood at best, and it was a major flop, swiftly overshadowed by another rock musical, ''{{Grease}}'', at the summer box office. Capitol Records re-released the Beatles' album with the label "The Original Classic" as impressionable teenage girls were under the impression that the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton thought up Sgt. Pepper first, and ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' (which bears the credit "starring Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band") made the rounds on TV in syndication.

A 1978 movie combining Music/TheBeeGees, Creator/SteveMartin, Music/PeterFrampton, Frankie Howard, Creator/GeorgeBurns and Music/AliceCooper with the then-11-year-old classic [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] [[Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand album]], although it also incorporates other late-period Beatles songs. Beatles producer George Martin and engineer Geoff Emerick lent the film their reflected credibility.

Alas, back home an evil organization known as "[=F.V.B.=]" has its sights set on the original instruments, for the joy and love they embody is anathema to them. The mean Mr. Mustard (Frankie Howerd) and his goon the Brute easily overpower Mr. Kite and steal the four instruments for them; soon Heartland has decayed into a sleazy shadow of its former self that Mr. Mustard gleefully dominates. Billy's girlfriend Strawberry Fields runs away from home and tells the band what happened; together they must track down the stolen instruments if they hope to restore Heartland -- which won't be easy thanks to all the treachery surrounding them.

* DirtyOldMan: Mean Mr. Mustard was described as a "dirty old man" in the original song, and the film version bears this out when he kidnaps Strawberry Fields -- his advances towards her are how "When I'm Sixty-Four" is incorporated into the film. (It's interesting how they managed to take a happy song Paul wrote about his father and turned it into an extremely creepy song about an old man stalking a young woman. Kudos to the acting talents of the late Frankie Howerd in his last film.)
