That Thing You Do!

It has a good beat, and you can dance to it.

Tom Hank’s directorial debut is a blast of pure fun, even in its more-serious moments, boppin’ along as small-town teens hit the big time.

The “Oneders” aren’t built for the long run, but they pack a sweet, fizzy high as they ride a brief wave of popularity based around a hit song they’re unlikely to ever duplicate.

Fame is a fickle mistress, and if the lads eventually go their own way, there’s always hope.

This is the 25th anniversary of the film – perfect time to stage a reunion tour.
