    The movie.. Want to see the play now. Was astounded how many hit songs they did. Fantastic stuff. And I'm only 36!? Timeless tunes IMO.

    They were both great. They play with the timeline a bit for the sake of the story, but most of what is presented actually happened. And those SONGS!!

    Great movie and mostly very factual. Having met and worked with both Frankie and Bob Crew, I can say they nailed it personality-wise.

    Haven't seen the movie, but saw the play in NYC.

    First time I haven't fallen asleep at a play. Fun stuff!

    I liked it but it didn't seem that special , and the subjects were just kind of boring. I understand the appeal of some of those songs at the pop level, but the cheesy factor wears on me. I don't think I'd enjoy a whole night of that nasaly voice.
    Certainly they aren't as revered as many of their contemporaries from a quality standpoint. They were like the Backstreet Boys of their day it seems.

    Saw both. See the play if you can. If you liked the movie, the play will rock your world.

    And forget the haters...great story, great music...

    I like the music just fine, but I watched the movie and found it sorely lacking in continuity. It just sort of rambled from scene to scene with no connective plot, in my opinion. For example, the timeline was never established. You don't know if the events that took place were months or years apart.

    Plus the DJ "playing the record for 24 hours non-stop" scene was directly stolen from what Fred Travalena did in the Buddy Holly story. Just another derivative music business movie. Boring in my opinion.

    I believe TGP's own Jimmy McIntosh is the guitar player on that gig. Maybe he will chime in.
