that thing you do!

Last night I watched the movie That Thing You Do with some friends.  I’d never seen it before – so cute!  It’s so squeaky-clean you could brush your teeth with it, but I mean that in a good way.  Every now and then it’s refreshing to see a movie with no profanity, no sex (well, there was some subtext with Jimmy but nothing explicitly stated), and no nasty antagonist.

If you’re not familiar with it, it’s the story of a fictional one-hit wonder band in the 1960’s – there are a lot of parallels with the Beatles, and I will admit that near the beginning of the movie when the main character was playing his drumset in a goofy manner I squealed, “he’s Ringo!”  Tom Hanks directed it and appears in a supporting role as the band’s manager.  All in all, it’s a great choice when you’re in the mood for a feel-good movie.
