Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Review
A pretty funny send-up of various music biopics. It's hit or miss, with a lot of misses, but when it hits it's really hilarious. It's nice to see wonderful character actor John C Reilly get a true starring role here and he does a good job of it. Jenn...(read more)a Fischer is also quite funny as his June Carter-inspired love interest. With her work on The Office and in Blades of Glory, she's proving herself to be one of the most skilled comediennes today. Some of the songs are quite good as well (especially the Duet one, that slayed me). Some of it though is painfully dumb. Oh well still a pretty good time and it has the best movie tag line in history: Life Made Him Tough, Love Made Him Strong, Music Made Him Hard.
Overall Score: 6/10
