A-list director Ron Howard worked with the surviving Beatles to assemble this engaging documentary, which offers an inside look at Beatlemania, the three years when the best pop band in history toured the world. The messy title is a hint as to how compromised this film is: it's not a proper journalistic look at the band, but rather an approved portrait with the rough edges removed. But with its never-seen footage and lots of great music, it can't help but be hugely entertaining.
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr spent years developing their sound before they hit the big time. And when they set off on their first tour in 1963, things immediately went crazy, with unprecedented displays of fan adoration. Fans couldn't get enough of these cheeky young guys from Liverpool, and their irreverent antics during interviews further endeared them to their audience. As they embarked on their first major tour of America, young journalist Larry Kane was sent to accompany them. Initially annoyed at this fluffy assignment, Kane was won over by their talent and the way they stood up to segregation laws in the South. But by 1966, they found that playing concerts in stadiums was simply too exhausting (they couldn't hear themselves above the screaming), so they abruptly stopped performing in public. The rest of their career took place in the studio.
All of this is recounted in a terrific range of home movies, archive footage, snapshots and interviews from the time, plus present-day recollections from Paul and Ringo. Added to this are interviews with celebrities who as children saw them perform, artists who worked with them and historians who examine their talent and impact. With access to this kind of material and a skilled editing team, Howard creates a film that's energetically gripping, offering a perspective on the Beatles that we may not have seen before.

‘The View’ host was criticised on twitter for saying she’d discriminated against a job applicant with a ‘ghetto name’.
Raven-Symoné has come under fire on social media for comments she made during an episode of ‘The View’ on Thursday. During a segment on the talk show, the former Disney Channel star said she would discriminate against any job applicant with a “ghetto” name.
Raven-Symoné has encountered controversy after comments she made on ‘The View’.
During a discussion about a study released in the Journal of Evolution and Human Behaviour, the host said there were certain names she would discriminate against if she were an employer. “Just to bring it back, can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word,” she told her co-hosts.
The ABC talk show has been embroiled in controversy after hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins made jokes about the nursing profession following the Miss America pageant.
Three more big name sponsors have pulled their advertising from ‘The View’ following jokes made by hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins about the nursing profession earlier this week. According to TMZ, Party City, Snuggle and McCormick Spice have all ditched the show, following Johnson & Johnson and Eggland’s Best who pulled their advertising on Thursday.
‘The View’ host Joy Behar.
On the McCormick Facebook page the spice company wrote, ‘Thank you for expressing your concerns. Like you, we also value and admire nurses, so we have paused advertising on the daytime television show in question.’ Snuggle have also issued a statement in praise of nurses.

Whoopi Goldberg - A host of stars including previous cast members were snapped as they arrived to the Rockerfeller Plaza for Saturday Night Live as it celebrated it's 40th anniversary with a star studded gala in New York, United States - Sunday 15th February 2015
Andre Allen has been voted the Funniest Man in America in his illustrious career as a stand-up comedian. But somehow, he feels there's more to life than just telling jokes to an audience and so he decides to venture into the world of acting, playing the lead role in the 'Hammy The Bear' cop movie series. Unfortunately, that kind of film isn't going to land him any series roles in the future, and with his reality star fiancee Erica begging him to let her air their forthcoming wedding on her show, he's really starting to feel like the A list isn't where he's ever going to be.

20 years after its release, the cast of The Little Rascals recreate some of the film's most famous poses
They shot to fame and gained a momentous audience following in 1994 as a rag-tag group of troublesome kids in the American comedy Little Rascals. The little people that gave us so much joy in the film adaptation of Hal Roach’s Our Gang may have grown up but they haven’t stopped entertaining as the stars of the show got together to recreate the movie’s poster 20 years later.
The potential new lineup of The View is already shaping up.
The View may have found its new Republican panelist. Following the exit of Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, Meghan Mccain is reportedly in talks to take up one of the available seats alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell, whose return to The View was announced earlier this week.
Meghan McCain is a columnist and author, the daughter of Senator John McCain.
While John McCain’s daughter typically describes herself as conservative, she does hold fairly liberal views on some issues, including civil rights. Meghan is an outspoken advocate for same-sex marriage, but she is also a supporter of the Pro-Life movement, so her voice could definitely heat up the conversation on the ABC show.
In a bout of sisterly love, McCarthy announced her departure with Sherri Shepherd.
The news that Sherri Shepherd was leaving ABC’s The View has been out since last week, when the host tweeted about her departure. At that time, her co-host and friend Jenny McCarthy tweeted: “If Sherri goes ... I go too. #sisters.”
