Review With that first-rate cast, it's a shame that Townsend wastes time covering the well-worn ground of what fame, money, booze, drugs and the wrong women can do to a nice bunch of guys. But the movie, inspired by the hot and hard times of such groups as the Temptations, the Four Tops and the Dells, offers ample compensations. A propulsive score, spirited choreography by Michael Peters and evocative sets and costumes help Townsend re-create musical history. Even cliches can't muffle that joyful noise.
