JERSEY BOYS “Oh what a treat.”
By Celebrity Insider SANDRO MONETTI

RATING: 4 out of 5

Oh what a night you are in for by seeing this charming, entertaining and hugely enjoyable story of the trials and triumphs of pop group The Four Seasons.

 

Director Clint Eastwood does a great job developing the stage musical version for the big screen by
bringing more depth and emotion to this roller-coaster showbiz story.

 

The musical movie really sings, especially in the staging of toe tapping hits such as Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man, Sherry , My Eyes Adored You and (Oh What A Night) December 1963.

All the acting performances are really good too, especially John Lloyd Young as Frankie Valli, Vincent Piazza as his big mouthed band-mate Tommy DeVito and Mike Doyle as the band’s producer Bob Crewe.

There’s so much story to get through as the band members move from small time crime to big time success that it seems like a couple of scenes may have been cut . But apart from some choppy editing that results, this film is a real treat and plays like a winning cross between Good Fellas
and West Side Story.

RATING: 4 out of 5.
