The Cast Of 'That Thing You Do!' Reunited, And Made Sure To Get The Song Stuck In Our Heads

Long live The Oneders.

Is it possible to be nostalgic for two decades at once? It must be, because that's what happened this week when the cast of That Thing You Do!, our favorite '90s movie about the '60s, reunited for a special performance of the title song.

The original 1996 film, which was written and directed by co-star Tom Hanks, was about the rise of a Beatles-style pop band called The Wonders (formerly The Oneders). Three out of the band's four members — Tom Everett Scott, Johnathon Schaech, and Ethan Embry — got back together Tuesday night to perform the movie's catchy song at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles.


The reunion was thanks to comedian Josh Adam Meyers, who created the Goddamn Comedy Jam, in which comics perform stand-up sets and then sing cover songs with a live band.

The Wonders dressed in matching white shirts and black ties for the occasion, with Tom Everett Scott, aka Guy, wearing his signature shades on the drums. We'd totally buy tickets if they went on tour.

Unfortunately, the band's fourth member Steve Zahn couldn't be there, but at least a photo of him made an appearance. And while we would have loved to see Tom Hanks make a cameo as the band's manager, we won't be picky about a reunion that's been more than 20 years in the making.

"When we reunion, we reunion hard," Embry, aka the still-unnamed bass player, wrote on Twitter.

Check out the original performance of the song below. (We know what movie we're watching this weekend.)
