Jersey Boys

Plot: This is a bio-pic about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the 1960's pop band. [imdb]    [photos]

Review: Jersey Boys really makes me appreciate how bad music was before the Beatles. 

I know someone likes this music, but it isn't me, and I couldn't wait for the movie to end. The film is punctuated by songs, and the scripted action isn't enough alone. The film is slow and the characters are stereotypes. 

Finally real stories  are usually boring. The real world ending is especial boring. It would have ended better with a plane crash or a suicide. Maybe earlier too. 

John Lloyd does have a nice voice though. He has a few albums, and they are this same archaic style of music. 

Cast: John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza

Directed by: Clint Eastwood: he must like this style of music after all he is 84. Jersey Boys was based on the stage play

Rating: 1.5 star

More: The real ending is a dull let down, but the post ending is a Bollywood style dancing blowout. Clearly the best part. 

Even More Here is the real band.
