‘Yesterday’ is relentlessly unamusing and thoroughly unconvincing in its tale of a struggling musician becoming the only person in the world who knows The Beatles ever existed.
If this is the final bow for the franchise, ‘Toy Story 4’ will be ending on a note so high that it should be one of the year’s Best Picture nominees.
‘Murder Mystery’ is about what you would expect from a straight-to-Netflix summer comedy—and maybe even a little better.
