This screen adaptation of the Tony-winning jukebox musical can carry a tune but never quite finds the right rhythm. The notoriously minimal filmmaking style of director Clint Eastwood is ill-suited to the material. The first half is an entertaining romp through The Four Seasons' rise to stardom, but by the end, it devolves into a pageant of bad wigs, even worse old-man makeup and tidy plot resolutions.
