CAN'T TAKE MY KIDS' EYES ONTO YOU: Can someone familiar with the musical explain to me why the film adaptation of Jersey Boys had to be released as rated R for "language throughout"? Given the content, was it just unavoidable that this be released in a family-unfriendly format?
[I also love this note from Tasha Robinson's review: "The actors’ ages don’t help; the film has a bit of a Rent problem, with performers who have aged out of their roles. The scene where Bob loses his virginity to great acclaim is odd enough—the actor is 28, the character is supposed to be 18, though the film doesn’t mention that detail—but it’s even odder when Frankie’s parents scold him about his 11 p.m. curfew. John Lloyd Young is 38."]
