I saw the trailer for this, which had Ringo's Photograph in it too.

Saw this today, and Judd Atapow must be a Beatles fan.

Great Day begins the film.

"In Private" plays twice in the movie.

Adam Sandler sings "Real Love" with a band (including the "I don't expect you..." part that's in the Acoustic version).

Photograph

Credits play out to "Watching the Wheels" (acoustic)

And I swear I heard George's "Give Me Love..." somewhere in there too!

Funny movie too :-D

First, its a great movie.

Second, someone's a Beatle fan, because it opens, I mean, IMMEDIATELY almost, with Paul's "Great Day" and closes with "Watching the Wheels" from Accoustic.

In between, we get Photograph and Adam Sandler doing a nice job on "Real Love" with a band. WOW.

(There's a lot of other great music too...)

It almost had me wishing that they had done the whole soundtrack on solo Beatles... could have made it REAL interesting.

Like James Taylor saying "***censored*** facebook" and that great Neil Diamond song off his record before.

One of the things I love about Adam Sandler movie's over the years is the fact that he uses much of the same cast through out. Whether it's a bit part or whatever. You know what I mean, "You can do it". That seems to be carrying on with these latest comedy hits. 40 year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Superbad, Zack & Miri make a porno, Pinnapple Express. Just what I think are hilarious movies, the writing, the freedom the actors had to go off script here and there, the chemistry, the stupid things the friends say to each other makes these movies work.

Oh... and good call on In Private-- I heard that and thought "where in hell have I heard that before" and it drove me crazy-

Of course- In Private!!! Cool! How many movies do you see that feature a Macca B-side????
