Jersey Boys is a pretty good movie. Therein lies the problem. It is only pretty good. When I enter an auditorium to watch a movie directed by Clint Eastwood, I expect excellence. He rarely disappoints. Given that this is an adaptation of a smash-hit Broadway musical, it stood to reason that he would splash that musical across the big screen with his usual panache. It is a good film and there are many fine aspects to it; and perhaps I’m being unfair by having had such high expectations.
