«That Thing You Do!» Is a 1996 comedy. Tom Hanks wrote and directed this tribute to the bubblegum bands of early rock 'n' roll. In 1964, teenage garage band The One-ders – singer Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech), guitarist Lenny (Steve Zahn), drummer Guy (Tom Everett Scott) and a nameless bass player (Ethan Embry) – become an overnight sensation when their debut song jumps to the top of the charts. But internal tensions threaten to make the group's fall just as rapid as their rise. «That Thing You Do!» directed by Tom Hanks. You can download «That Thing You Do!» right here!
