Nice job Mary. Yes, I agree. It was a true story that left a lot of details out. Some of it was fictionalized. I'd like to say that the last scene actually held some truth to it, but not on purpose. Jan & Dean really did lip sync at this event. A couple of years later, Jan really did try to sing live at a different show. From what I've heard, he received a standing ovation. So if you combine the 2 events, the scene was more truthful. My father cried when watching the movie with me. Later on we both watched Jan & Dean sing Barbara Ann with the Beach Boys on national TV. My dad cried again and said that Jan is one couragous man!!
