Amerikaans regiedebuut van Tom Hanks uit 1996. Naast Hanks spelen Tom Everett Scott en Liv Tyler. In deze film wordt de Amerikaanse popgeschiedenis vanaf midden jaren zestig verteld aan de hand van de opkomst en ondergang van een bandje. Ab Zagt (Algemeen Dagblad): 'Fraaie rollen, vooral bandleider Tom Everett Scott maken van That thing you do! een symphatieke, kleine film waaraan niemand zich een buil zal vallen.' Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times,i): 'Good-humored and just about reeking of innocence.(...) Leaving audiences feel good is very much, and very succesfully, on its mind.' Mick LaSalle ( San Francisco Chronicle,i): 'well-made and entertaining.' De dvd bevat enkele leuke extra's zoals een mini-documentaire en videoclips.
