For music lovers and the like, this little number will have you bouncing of the charts. Though not one that Hanks is well known for, it was written and directed by him as well. It will have you singing along by the end.

At some point, like most of the actors, Tom Hanks felt compelled to become a director and this flick was his directing debut which is nowadays pretty much forgotten.

Indeed, it is a rather stand... read more

Recounts a fable of a pop rock band formed a year after the Beatles took America by storm in early 1964. Jazz aficionado Guy Patterson, unhappily toiling in the family appliance store, is recruited into the band the Oneders (later renamed the Wonders) after regular drummer Chad breaks his arm. After Guy injects a four/four rock beat into lead singer Jimmy's ballad, the song's undeniable pop power flings the Wonders into a brief whirlwind of success, telling the tale of many American bands who attempted to grab the brass ring of rock and roll in the wake of the British Invasion.

30 From 96: My Favorite Films From 1996 (30 movies items)

"By 1996, Tom Hanks proved that he could be a box office draw (A League Of Their Own, Forrest Gump), a comedic actor (Bachelor Party, Big), a serious thespian (Philadelphia, Apollo 13) and a romantic leading man (Splash, Sleepless In Seattle). With the release of That Thing That You Do, he was out to prove that he could direct too. And with an over-all 93% rating on that one spoiled fruit site that rates movies based on critics and audiences, he proved that he could. You go, Tom Hanks! You do th"
