Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons-the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group-with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public. Written by
When they are stealing a safe they put it in the trunk of their car lifting the front wheels of the car off the road.
The car is somehow still able to turn even though the front wheels don't have contact with the road. See more »

I'm sor... I'm sorry Crewe, how do you hear it?
I'm hearing it in sky blue and you're giving me brown.
Maybe that's because you're paying us shit.
I'm sorry Crewe, famous ears clogged up? I'll say it into the mike. Maybe because you're paying us fucking shit!
Alright, is there a problem Tommy?
Yeah, there's a problem!
Tommy DeVito, Bob Crewe:
Ok, let's see what the goddamn problem is.
Oh, we got his attention, he's coming down. About fucking time.

Going into the movie I knew and liked the Four Season's music, but was unsure if I would like the movie (it would not have been my first or second pick to go see). However, I was able to see an early viewing of the film and took advantage of it. I must say I LOVED it. It had all of the songs I loved. The film has the right amount of humor when needed. I have not seen the Broadway show version. If you like their music it is worth going just for that as it is a mix of recordings from the Four Seasons and also recordings from the cast. While it is rated R for language, I did not find it excessive. Erich Bergen's performance stood out for me.
I have never seen a Clint Eastwood film that he has been either a producer or director. I was wary about seeing the film, but must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would Recommend this film
