Synopsis A cautionary pop fable following the meteoritic rise of The Wonders, a fictitious foursome during the early days of pop-rock fandom. When jazz drummer Guy Patterson fills in for a session with a friend's band, a hit single is born and the smalltown boys find themselves riding a rollercoaster of success, guided by the opportunistic hand of a smooth-talking record label agent. Fun, cheerful, and innocent. Hanks' directorial debut. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Song (That Thing You Do).Set in the 1964 and steeped in Americana, this film chronicles the meteoric rise -- and equally quick demise -- of a music group called The Wonders. The talented musicians start out playing in neighborhood joints. That changes after they meet a shrewd record executive, who advises the boys on how to dress, act and sing. Soon their song, That Thing You Do, hits #1, and the group is on top of the world. Unfortunately, the song is The Wonders's only hit. And that's just one reason why the group's collapse happens so quickly...Theatrical Release: October 4, 1996 Shown at the 1996 Toronto Film Festival. Co-produced by Clinica estetico, in association with Clavius Base. Color by DeLuxe. Additional cast: Charlize Theron (Tina) and Chris Ellis (Horace)...A brightly entertaining blend of humor and heartbreak......Lovingly crafted....Sly irony... -- Rating: A-...An immensely likable, sweet-natured tale....The quartet of band members is credibly and winsomely played with standout work from the handsome Scott......Tom Hanks understands likable....Everett Scott is appropriately handsome and charming....Hanks and company allow us to dream......It remembers with great warmth a time and a place...4 stars out of 5 -- A real feelgood movie...
