Official Summary: A local Pennsylvania band scores a one hit wonder in 1964 and rides the star-making machinery as long as they can, with lots of help from their manager.
ALNM rec: This might be one of my favorite movies ever. When it came out in 1996, I remember going to the movie theatre to see it and loving it from the very beginning. Not only does it star the legendary Tom Hanks, but it also has characters that you can really get behind. It’s a great family movie with lots of toe-tapping music. Definitely a musical movie for people who don’t really care for musicals.
