Somewhere between pitch-perfect parodies from Christopher Guest and Co. (such as THIS IS SPINAL TAP and A MIGHTY WIND) and slapstick spoofs (such as AIRPLANE and NAKED GUN) resides the farcical biopic WALK HARD - THE DEWEY COX STORY. Taking the critically lauded Johnny Cash biopic WALK THE LINE as its most obvious inspiration, WALK HARD plows its way through every rock star cliche--from drug use and rampant sex to artistic self-indulgence and spiritual redemption--laying waste to all of them with unremitting blasts of brilliantly lowbrow comedy. Written by Judd Apatow and starring Jon C. Reilly in the title role, WALK HARD is a deliciously basic synthesis of any number of ponderous biographical narratives with the poetic raunchiness of Apatow films, such as SUPERBAD and KNOCKED UP, and the most lovably inane aspects of Reilly's role as Cal Naughton Jr. in TALLEDEGA NIGHTS. In fact, fans will have a blast spotting the endless array of cameos by the gifted comic actors who pepper all of those films, including Jonah Hill, Kristin Wiig, Ed Helms, and Jack McBrayer, among many others. Although Reilly (whose comedic chops are on par with his skills as a dramatic player) is hilarious as the hapless rock n' roll icon Cox, and Jenna Fischer is utterly charming and slyly multifaceted as Darlene Madison (June to Dewey's Johnny), it's the ensemble cast that makes the film so much fun.

Watched this again last night. Very funny.... the Beach Boys/Smile section is spot-on.

My fav scene is when Dewey meets the Beatles
Jack Black as Paul McCartney priceless
#4
Jack Black does the worst impression i have ever heard.

Justin Long's George Harrison is just hilarious.

I didn't find this film enjoyable, I'd even go as far as saying it one of the biggest piles of crap I've seen this year! Which is weird because I loved The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up which have the same director. I didn't like Tropic Thunder either though or Tallledega Nights...

Anyway just warning people who might be thinking of buying it because they liked the previously mentioned films, not voted eitherway. :)

I agree. I actually fell asleep watching this. I love 40 year old Virgin/Knocked Up/Superbad/Pineapple Express/Forgetting Sarah Marshall etc, but this film was pretty dire for me.
I didn't find it worth the time to watch for the small laughs this film gives. I didn't mind Talladega, but didn't really enjoy Tropic Thunder either. Hum.

I love this film, just waiting for a cheap Director's Cut DVD, the extra half hour is brilliant.
#11
Great film, great price.

You can take my children - but you leave me my monkey!

Great price but have to agree with it not being a good film. The main actor just isn't funny, he spoilt Talladega Nights for me as well.

But hey, I love Superbad so each to their own.

Exactly my thoughts.

Watch the trailer because every single laugh is in it. The film is too long and has too few laughs, even if you've seen Ray and Walk The Line.

Wow, what a terrible film. The songs were totally unmemorable to start with. Shame they canned Robbie Fulks' compositions - I'm sure they'd have been a lot better.

Love this film, no offence but I reckon most of the people that don't like it just don't understand the jokes....
