Story


From director Clint Eastwood comes the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical "Jersey Boys."

The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Dawn," "Rag Doll," "Bye Bye Baby," "Who Loves You," and many more.

These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe.

Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group's biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. Oscar winner Christopher Walken ("The Deer Hunter") stars as mobster Gyp DeCarlo.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..as a film interpretation of a smash stage musical, it falls flat..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..still, as flat and pitchy as the film sometimes feels, what saves it are those nostalgic..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
“.."Jersey Boys" is instead strangely focused on hewing strictly to reportage on the ins and outs of Franki Valli's not-very-interesting life..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
