 Jersey Boys movie scene

The Four Seasons come to life in Jersey Boys.

Based on the Tony Award-winning musical, Jersey Boys is a music-filled drama featuring The Four Seasons’ songs that influenced a generation, is directed by the seemingly immortal Clint Eastwood (J. Edgar, Million Dollar Baby).

Jersey Boys stars tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You,” and many more.

John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli. Erich Bergen stars as Bob Gaudio, who wrote or co-wrote all of the group’s biggest hits. Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza star respectively as Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito, two original members of The Four Seasons. And then there’s Christopher Walken (Seven Psychopaths), who portrays mobster Gyp DeCarlo.

Received rather tepidly by the critics, Jersey Boys rang up a not-bad $50 million at the domestic box office. (A rather dark piece, it was a weird choice for a summer release, if you ask me…)

The Blu-ray and DVD contain the following features:

  • From Broadway To The Big Screen (Blu-ray only)
  • Too Good To Be True (Blu-ray only)
  • “Oh, What A Night” To Remember
