  • Film Review: 'Jersey Boys'

    Though based on a smash-hit jukebox tuner that won four Tonys, Clint Eastwood's adaptation of "Jersey Boys" can't properly be described as a full-on musical. It does often hint at becoming one, just as it hints at becoming a "La Bamba"-esque early rock study, a cautionary tale about organized crime, and a sort of "Rashomon"-influenced take on the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. But by the time it hits its first real Broadway-style production number over the closing credits, "Jersey Boys" doesn't seem to have gotten any closer to deciding what kind of movie it wants to be. Embracing neither the fizzy energy of a Vegas-ready tuner, nor the grit of a warts-and-all biopic, the film nonetheless has its own peculiar charms, and should be able to capitalize on the source material's enduring popularity for a respectable if modest B.O. haul.
