That Thing You Do! (1996)

Tom Hanks's feature directing debut wouldn't have worked if its title tune hadn't been as satisfyingly sweet as it is. (It was written by Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne.) We hear it many times, and it never fails to get the heads bobbing and the toes tapping. Otherwise, That Thing You Do! is an amiable, good-natured take on the rock 'n' roll, rags-to-riches-to-rags formula. It's 1964, and Guy Patterson (Tom Everett Scott) wants to be a jazz drummer but works in his father's appliance store. Some pals in a pop band, Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech) and Lenny (Steve Zahn), ask him to sit in on a gig after their drummer is injured. He winds up speeding up their song, giving it the punch it needs to be a hit. One of the best jokes has to do with the band's name, the "One-ders," which is continually mispronounced as "the oh-NEED-ers." Hanks comes on board as A&R man Mr. White, fast-talking and with a dose of reality, but still a good guy. Liv Tyler is dewy-eyed and lovely, and shakes things up, as Faye, who is attached to Jimmy but turns Guy's head. Charlize Theron made her official acting debut here, but as a small-minded "pretty girl," unwilling to put up with her man being on the road; thankfully she earned better roles later on. Chris Isaak appears as "Uncle Bob," who first records the band. Hanks wrote the screenplay, and Jonathan Demme co-produced, bringing along his regular cinematographer, Tak Fujimoto, for the film's bright, innocent look. read more...

Viva Las Vegas (1964)

Elvis Presley's career is a thing of lost opportunity. On screen, the King could have been a decent actor, as evidenced by his expert performance in Don Siegel's Flaming Star (1960), or had he saved his energy for bigger, more sporadic releases, he could have been an event-worthy star. Instead, he saturated the market by cranking out a huge quantity of half-baked, forgettable films over a relatively short period of time. Of these, Jailhouse Rock (1957) is probably the most respected, but Viva Las Vegas (1964) is the most fun, and no film kicks off with a cooler theme song blasting across the screen. read more...

Sabrina (1954)

Sabrina is something of a conundrum for me. It's not a totally successful movie by any means. Writer-director Billy Wilder was unable to reasonably solve the love triangle between Hepburn and her two much older suitors (Humphrey Bogart and William Holden), neither of which was any prize to begin with. Yet, it's a perfect Audrey Hepburn vehicle, with her role as a chauffeur's daughter living over the garage of a huge mansion, and dreamily gazing at its opulent backyard parties. She knows -- and we know -- that she really belongs in one of them, twirling away in some fantastic dress. She sends the customers away with a warm, satisfied feeling. read more...
