All You Need Is Love (also known as The Beatles) is a 1978 television film that traces (in mockumentary style) the career of a fictitious British rock group called The Beatles. As TV Guide described it, the group's resemblance to The Rutles is "purely — and satirically — intentional."

The film was co-produced by the production companies of Paul Mccartney and Lorne Michaels, and directed by Mccartney and Gary Weis. It was first broadcast on 22 March 1978 on NBC, earning the lowest[1][2] ratings of any show on American Prime time network television that week. It did much better in the ratings when it premiered in the UK on BBC2 less than one week later.

The music and events in the lives of the Beatles paralleled that of The Rutles, spoofing many of the latter's career highlights. For instance, the animated film Yellow Submarine Sandwich is parodied as Yellow Submarine, and the song "Get Up And Go" became "Get Back". Songs from the film were released on an accompanying soundtrack album.

The Beatles were:

-John Lennon (Ron Nasty)

-Paul Mccartney (Dirk McQuickly)

-George Harrison (Stig O'Hara)

-Ringo Starr (Barry Wom)
