Jersey Boys | ★★★★★★★★☆☆

I walked into the theater last week wondering if the singing of John Lloyd Young would cut it for me. I was a huge Frankie Valli fan when I was a teen and wondered if Young would pull it off. In my opinion he did. And in the end that was all that mattered for me.

Yes, I did love the story of the Four Seasons. I really liked how it felt like a Broadway play without the limitations of that venue. But in the end I loved the singing. I loved the songs. Hearing those old Four Seasons' songs carried me back to a simpler time. My days with Johnny, Tommy, Ray and Albert back on Summerfield Place in Staten Island.

That said, I do wonder if non-Baby-Boomers will like it. Will the Rap generation enjoy listening to Frankie Valli? Not sure they will. I think that the movie may only appeal to folks like me who grew up on the their music. Even so, on a scale of ten, I give it ★★★★★★★★.
