Set in 1964, the film stars a talented group of newcomers as The Wonders, a fictional rock band that embarks on a humorous journey when its hit song rockets to the top of the charts. Traveling cross country from spaghetti joints to state fairs, The Wonders land a record deal, a manager, a trip to Hollywood and an extraordinary look at the halcyon days of rock and roll.

Sweet, sleepy take on flash-in-the-pan '60s band.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that aside from a few curse words and some drinking, this film offers little that would offend parents. The band's manager gives them beers in the afternoon, and Guy gets drunk at a jazz bar, but pays for it the next day with a hangover. Jimmy humiliates his girlfriend in front of everyone.
