At times the movie version of “Jersey Boys” captures the electric excitement of the musical, but for every soaring moment, there are 10 minutes of bickering or brooding.

Geez, you mean your review(which I disagree with) would have been favorable if we "heard" their opinion of The Beattles??
And if we knew 2 members were ex-cons....really "relelvant, Mr.
Roeper..HUH?? Contrary to your puzzling review, I ,and others found the film completely entertaining, and well balanced between music and story. Eastwood and Co. did their usual outstanding job.

I stand by my review.

Disappointing except for the musical numbers; especially Can't Take My Eyes Off of You and the closing "curtain call" number. To me the performances felt forced and I felt bombarded by the accents. I didn't dislike it but expected more. For me a 5.5 or 6 on a scale of 10.
