From Oscar®-winning director Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) comes the big-screen adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical. JERSEY BOYS tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the legendary 1960s rock group The Four Seasons. John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony-winning role of legendary lead singer Frankie Valli, alongside Erich Bergen as the group's co-writer Bob Gaudio. 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," and many more --classic hits that are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the musical that's been running on Broadway for more than eight years.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jersey Boys -- a heartwarming, catchy, moving musical about the rise of singer Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons -- hews closely to the Broadway production it's based on. Expect plenty of period-accurate smoking and drinking, as well as lots of swearing (everything from "f--k" and "s--t" to "a--hole"), but although the movie touches on mature themes -- working for the Mob, losing your virginity, the death of a child -- it's neither graphic nor gratuitous in either violence or sexual content (there's no nudity). Teens are shown trying to pull off heists, and one man is seemingly shot at point blank. One character in particular is also in and out of jail, and the female characters aren't very deep, but ultimately there are worthy messages about loyalty, commitment, and hard work.
