That Thing You Do!

This very enjoyable tribute to one hit wonders marks Tom Hanks's directing debut. It follows the beginning, the growth, the peak, and the quick death of a 60's band called "The Wonders." With the lighthearted pace, a funny script, and a great cast (including the hilarious Steve Zahn), it makes this a film that you will want to re-experience. The song is a pretty catchy one, too.
