In Rich's Picks brought to you by, if "drummin'" is life and movies are magic, then movies about drumming are magical.

Rich's first pick is one from 2002 starring a young Nick Cannon as a Harlem street drummer. A band director plucks him from the streets to play at a Southern university, not knowing that his new recruit can't read a note of music. But he sure can bring it when it counts. We're talking about 'Drumline'.

Rich's second pick is a flick about someone who takes someone else's song and makes it better! This movie from 1996, written, directed and starring Tom Hanks is about a small-town band that scores a hit -- it's 'That Thing You Do'.
