- The music numbers are truly outstanding, their music sounds fantastic
- Very little comedy, but when it appears, its great
- Costume design is always interesting to look at in that time period
- Frankie's voice is absolutely astonishing, there is nothing like it
- Christopher Walken!
- Interesting insight into the background of the group and its internal turmoil that plagued them
- Hardly establishes their popularity and fame (they were incredibly popular during their heyday)
- Once they discover a very popular song, they move right on away and suddenly need another new hit
- The character of Tommy is supposed to be the tough guy, but he is not at all convincing
- Unnecessary jump in time at the end of the movie
- They don't perform their best song (Oh, What a Night) till the end credits with a disappointing 'group' performance......super disappointed
- Eastwood never establishes a strong sense of authenticity
- Frank's family story line is super scarce until it's needed at the end of the film for some type of emotional response
- Overall film feels thin and boring outside of the actual singing, mostly because of thin characters
Skip this movie and just listen to their songs online. Outside of singing the actual songs, the film is just a bore all around, especially since the movie wants to be a more serious, less fun of a movie than it should be. Jersey Boys focuses too much on the darker side of their story and that is its problem, its hard to enjoy such a grim movie about such an iconic group. They were the original boy band and I was hoping for a more light-hearted tale of their popularity and fame, but instead we get a melodrama about internal conflicts which we have seen a million times before. If you are looking for a more emotional and impactful story of fame watch Ray or Walk The Line. Just an all around forgettable movie and a very subpar one at that.
