Consensus: Jersey Boys is neither as inventive nor as energetic as it could be, but there's no denying the powerful pleasures of its musical moments.

The Atlantic

A scattered, haphazard, thoroughly confused film that can't figure out if it's meant to be a winningly cutesy musical or a gritty narrative about life in crime-ridden 1950s New Jersey.

At times the movie version of "Jersey Boys" captures the electric excitement of the musical, but for every soaring moment, there are 10 minutes of bickering or brooding.

Large sections of the storytelling feel inert, and some key moments get short shrift.

Though there is little in the way of directorial ingenuity, Clint Eastwood's "Jersey Boy" is a delightfully light (R-rated) musical biopic… More

Jersey Boys has some great songs and the acting is fantastic, but its just too slow for its own good.

It's clear that Clint Eastwood doesn't understand the first thing about making a musical. He grossly mishandles the source material. What made the… More

As Tommy DeVito(Vincent Piazza) puts it, there were three ways to escape the tough streets of Belleville, NJ in 1951. One by army, two by crime, and three by… More
