    What Went Wrong with 'Jersey Boys'? (VIDEO)

    It's easy to see how Warner Bros. turned to their A-list director-producer Clint Eastwood, known for his calm, economic, unpretentious, methodical filmmaking, for the 60s period musical "Jersey Boys."

    Review: Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’ A Classy Yet Clumsy Transfer From Stage To Screen
