Movie Info

In the 1960s, four scrappy young men from New Jersey -- Frankie Valli (John Lloyd Young), Bob Gaudio (Erich Bergen), Nick Massi (Michael Lomenda) and Tommy DeVito (Vincent Piazza) -- have the magic sound that propels them from singing under streetlights to singing in spotlights. With songs like "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like a Man," the quartet finds itself at the top of the charts. However, personal and professional problems threaten to tear the group apart.

Audience Reviews for Jersey Boys

    This was just an okay musical for me. The story just isn't that extraordinary although the cast does well. It starts out moderately exciting and never climbs above that standard.

    Eastwood's the right guy to make a movie about The Four Seasons, unfortunately a lot of the cast are amateurish over-actors, the make-up is laughably awful, and the source material was never strong enough to work as anything but a flashy stage show designed to feed baby boomers insatiable nostalgia.

    A dull, uninvolving and derivative biopic full of the clichés that Eastwood has by now become an expert on, and it doesn't give us any reason why this story deserves to be told or what makes those characters remotely interesting besides Frankie Valli's voice.

    As Tommy DeVito(Vincent Piazza) puts it, there were three ways to escape the tough streets of Belleville, NJ in 1951. One by army, two by crime, and three by making it big and two out of three are not bad. For Frankie(John Lloyd Young), working in his father's(Lou Volpe) barber shop is not an option when he wounds big shot Gyp DeCarlo(Christopher Walken) while trying to shave him at work. Crime is not an option either as Frankie seems inept at that, lucky to escape any jail time after a botched robbery. Then there is his beautiful singing voice but getting it out to the people is harder than it sounds. In an engaging and entertaining style, "Jersey Boys" tells the story of the rise and fall of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, by showing the unique combination of personalities that can lead to a creative success can also lead to its downfall. In bringing this popular stage musical to the screen, Clint Eastwood makes a couple of wise decisions in allowing for the characters to still directly address the audience, allowing for multiple points of view, and keeping the original cast, thereby keeping the stunt casting to a minimum. Even as the movie might be a little too long, admittedly, it does find just the right emotional climax.
