Yes! Part of it was filmed in the legendary Watson's Drugs Store right here in Orange!

So, yeah. It's pretty neat. And a good pop flick and the song isn't bad. I like it.

(Earlier tonight, I heard the Worst Song Ever, also related to a Tom Hanks film. This was not his fault!)

Hi Brian
Yes i also used to watch this movie every week, have it in my DVD collection :)
Always so fun and basically i love every movie about the early sixties, the style, the music, the clothes, the cars, everything...such a great fantastic era
Wish i could live back then ;)
I would release my songs on original '45s and Vinyl albums, and i could sell millions of copies of my 1st single :" BABY I WANT YOU" ;)
here it is if you want to listen:

We have this movie in our DVD collection and my husband and I both love this movie! Such a feel good movie and my husband can totally relate since he's been in bands since he was 16. Tom Hanks was REALLY good in this film! And the song is really a feel good song as well!!

"That Thing You Do!" was an unexpectedly wonderful film from Tom Hanks, a warm remembrance of how everything changed after February 9, 1964.

Did you know the hit title song was by Adam Schlesinger, bassist for Fountains of Wayne and Ivy? Both (real) bands are terrific:

rjm is speaking about Frank Ocean performing "Forrest Gump" at the 2013 Grammy Awards last night.

Some people didn't like it.
