Synopsis

Written by, directed by and co-starring Tom Hanks, this high-energy comedy about fame and friendship dances on to Blu-ray™ for the very first time. Hanks plays the big-hearted manager of a 1960s pop-rock group called The Wonders that becomes a shooting-star sensation thanks to a delightfully catchy chart-topper called: “That Thing You Do!”

Reviews

Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader | December 17, 2007

Though Hanks keeps the satirical and critical aspects of this look at show biz fairly light, there's a lot of conviction and savvy behind the steadiness of his gaze.

Desson Thomson Washington Post | December 17, 2007

First-time writer/director Tom Hanks stays about a half-beat ahead of the cliches with rim shots of boyish enthusiasm and deft comedy. The movie's also buoyed by the title song, whose Beatles sound is infectious enough to merit a real hit.

Emanuel Levy Variety | January 03, 2007

A sweet, likeable tale of the quick rise to fame and then demise of a small town band. Set in 1964, Hanks' film offers a sanitized, Gump-ish look at a mythical period when boys were boys and girls were girls, with no references to the sex-drug subculture

Janet Maslin New York Times | May 20, 2003

Mr. Hanks's debut feature, written and directed with delightful good cheer, is rock-and-roll nostalgia presented as pure fizz.

Richard Harrington Washington Post | November 16, 2001

Though Hanks doesn't serve up much context, he's solid with details, and the Wonders' performances ring truer than most.

Peter Travers Rolling Stone | May 12, 2001

...a brightly entertaining blend of humor and heartbreak about four fresh-faced guys in a band from Erie, Pa.
