That Thing You Do is a movie of it’s time. Young me would have probably dug it. At my current age and experience it seems more a cute idea but executed poorly. There is no real conflict. The romance aspect is tacked on at the end. The story itself is very tame, and forgettable. It also lacks any edge to make it really interesting. It’s a fine movie of it’s time but I wouldn’t recommend it for modern audiences or anyone over middle school age.
