On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.
Recounts a fable of a pop rock band formed a year after the Beatles took America by storm in early 1964. Jazz aficionado Guy Patterson, unhappily toiling in the family appliance store, is recruited into the band the Oneders (later renamed the Wonders) after regular drummer Chad breaks his arm. After Guy injects a four/four rock beat into lead singer Jimmy's ballad, the song's undeniable pop power flings the Wonders into a brief whirlwind of success, telling the tale of many American bands who attempted to grab the brass ring of rock and roll in the wake of the British Invasion.Written by

When the photographer at Playtone says to Sol Syler "Saw you at Chasen's with Suzanne Pleshette," he raises the camera and takes a shot with it. His eye is nowhere near the viewfinder of the camera - it's behind the flashgun. See more »

What's going on down there?
Harriet Priestly just called your mama. Her husband drove by the store and said the lights are still on. What are the lights still doing on?
Cookin' the books as usual, Dad.
The sign, Guy, the sign is still on. Are we open for business all night now?
No. Sorry, I'll uh, turn that right off.
Is that music playing on one of them store hi-fis?
I'll turn that right off, too.

This is really a great movie, no question. I rarely watch a film that is so skilfully crafted and yet is completely inoffensive to any segment of society. The movie combines comedy (and some parts are definitely funny) with romance in a tender-hearted tale of friendship and growing up. I simply cannot recommend this movie highly enough except to say that this is a film I could watch multiple times. Brilliantly acted by a still maturing cast ensemble, witty dialogue, it's got it all. If you want to see something that with touch you and give you a buzz but you don't want to be assailed by profanity, violence, or sexuality - That Thing You Do! is the movie for you. Another Hanks triumph, not just for his role in the movie but for putting it all together. 8/10
