Movie review score
3/5

What’s it about?
You’ve heard of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons… But did you know they had mob connections and were mates with Joe Pesci?

What did we think?
Not heavy enough to be a mob movie, and not musical enough to be a musical. The history of the Four Seasons makes for a ripping yarn but with Clint Eastwood pumping it full of grit, it doesn’t quite reach the joyous heights of the stage show until the last scene. Back away from the musicals, Clint. And get off my lawn.
