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.

Eldi Mingsaid on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 7:31:52 AMI think you're right, i mean it could be more inspiring if they put the some sad moments aside, and yes i think that era was the era of beatles and there should be some private opinion regarding them, i say it is good but should have more better, the script is good and the music are great, the acting was broadway class, i think they use Vincent Piazza to make Tomy looked tougher and the seasons are younger, ithink it should had more score..a B- maybe?
Phillip Katchersaid on Monday, June 23, 2014 3:44:41 AMGeez, 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.
Reply from Richard Roeper I stand by my review.

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.
