A fun comedy that provides a clever take on Beatlemania with a catchy and harmony-rich song the Fab Four easily could have written. Tom Hank anchors the film with a snarky performance. The movie does go for the easiest digs at the music industry, but it's light-hearted and well-executed enough to be enjoyable.

A movie about a One Hit Wonder you can watch once

"The One-ders," later named "The Wonders," are a garage band with big dreams, and they become a reality. But can they go through with what every band eventually goes through?

The movie pretty much nails the 1960s. From the sets to the wardrobe, you pretty much feel like you have been transported to to the era.

Then there is the characters -- none of which I could identify with. There was no depth to them in my opinion, and they all seemed pretty one-dimensional. The script was pretty much the same way.

The performances from the cast were fine, but they were handed a pretty weak script that just didn't give the cast the opportunity to shine. None of them stood out in my opinion, even Tom Hanks, who also directed.

There was some drama in this film, but nothing really stood o...
