Excerpt: I'm only going to comment on the video as everything else has been reviewed to agreement. I held off watching this for weeks after reading the negative reviews. On my 120" screen I predicted it would be a bloodbath. I was blown away by what I saw.
Summary: Very few movies feel classic to me and merit multiple watches. The Tom Hanks-directed That Thing You Do! hits the perfect chord and rings out better than perhaps any other music-inspired film at least on the lighter side of life.
Excerpt: If you enjoy a little rock-n-roll pastime when young teens made music in their garages not really thinking of the big picture then suddenly they a thrust into the limelight and the duties to perform can go very good or horribly wrong.
Excerpt: This was a blind buy for me..TU&S cost me $5 bucks, so really nothing to lose...PQ wasn't great, but I have seen worse..It's not as bad I don't think as some tend to lead on...The audio was great..Soundtrack is fantastic.
Excerpt: It infuriates me when a solid flick gets a shoddy high definition transfer. That Thing You Do should be the poster child of this phenomenon. It's totally unacceptable that a release should look this bad, no matter what era it's from.
Excerpt: For years, I've been a huge fan of "That Thing You Do!", and I've been awaiting the Blu-ray release for a long time. The video presentation on this disc is only slightly better than watching the DVD. While that's disappointing, the audio presentation on this disc shines!
