'Jersey Boys' is a tuneful pleasure to watch: 3 stars

At the undiminished age of 84, director Clint Eastwood delivers one of his best films with “Jersey Boys,” a well-acted, finely crafted adaptation of the Broadway hit about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

The movie, like the Tony-winning show, traces the rise, success and breakup of the seminal group built around Valli’s distinctive falsetto vocals. In some ways it’s a conventional showbiz saga, but it draws the audience in with vivid personalities, eccentric humor and all-too-human backstories.
