Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

That Thing You Do! (1996)

Directed by Tom Hanks

Starring Tom Everett Scott, Liv Tyler, Johnathon Schaech, Steve Zahn


As an actor, Hanks’ roles have been very funny or very dramatic. This movie, though, is quite plain. Neither funny nor dramatic. It’s well-made, but there’s just not much to it. Why is that? Did Hanks just want some safe material so that he could give directing a shot and see if he liked it?
