That Thing You Do (1996)
A Pennsylvania band scores a hit in 1964 and rides the star-making machinery as long as it can, with a good deal of help from their manager.
Cast: Tom Hanks, Tom Everett Scott, Liv Tyler, Johnathon Schaech, Steve Zahn, Ethan Embry, Charlize Theron, Giovanni Ribisi. Director: Tom Hanks. TV-PG. 1:00 PM EST. Fox Movie Channel.
Tom Hanks directorial debut, and labor of love, is on Fox Movie Channel tomorrow. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen it, but a nice time capsule of the last seemingly innocent time in these United States, coupled with some catchy tunes and a cast of then unknowns that now populate a lot of movies and television shows. Also on Fox tomorrow is prior CPOD True Lies (3:30 AM).
