Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

It's the summer of 1964, and Guy Patterson is a salesman at his father's appliance store in Erie, Pennsylvania. By day, he sells toasters and transistor radios. But at night, he retreats to the basement, sits down at a set of drums, and disappears into a cloud of jazz percussion.

He's ready to roll when a local rock band loses its drummer and asks him to sit in at a college talent show. One month later, The Wonders are shooting stars in the Play-Tone Records galaxy with a recording contract, a state fair tour, and a trip to Hollywood.

As their signature song, "That Thing You Do!," rockets to the top of the charts, The Wonders embark on a humorous and surprising journey where they not only get a taste of fame, but an extraordinary look at the halcyon days of rock and roll.
