Secrets (also titled One Crazy Night) is a 1992 Australian film directed by Michael Pattinson and starring Dannii Minogue and Noah Taylor. The film follows four of the Beatles' biggest fans (and an Elvis Presley fan who hates the Beatles), who find themselves locked up in the basement of the hotel where the Beatles are staying during a tour. While waiting for rescue, they start to share their deepest secrets with each other. The film has notable similarities to The Breakfast Club, in terms of plot, style and characters.

The film's soundtrack consisted of instrumental renditions of many Beatles songs. However, the movie attracted criticism for including a number of songs from much later periods of the Beatles' history to the one being portrayed onscreen. Thus, scenes depicting 1964 Beatlemania were played against songs from later albums such as Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which many viewers felt did not fit with the tone of the film.
Willa O'Neill was nominated for the Australian Film Institute Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.
