Edith: "What about my dreams?"
Dewey Cox: "Edith I told you I can't build your candy house! It will fall apart, the sun will melt the candy, it won't work!"

As a Judd Apatow feature, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story is a slight disappointment with mild laughs. On the other hand, as a contemporary movie spoof of a genre then Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story surpasses expectations.... read more

Biopic films are a great way of remembering a legend, and im mocking those biopic films Walk Hard has created a legend out of Dewey Cox.
Walk Hard is the story of Dewey Cox (John C Reilly), a Johnny Cash-esque singer who after accidentally killing his brother has to prove his greatness, or be doubly great for himself and his brother. After playing “the devils” music a 14-year-old Dewey ... read more

An average movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot Judd Apatow’s comedies, I thought I might as well give it a try. Indeed, even though this movie was directed by Jake Kasdan, it was produced and written by Apatow but I think it was more or less a flop when it was released. Personally, I thought it was pretty neat to see John C. Reilly, one of the most underrated actors at work nowadays, finally playing the lead for once and he did a pretty good job here but it wasn’t enough, I’m afraid. Indeed, basically, the whole thing is a spoof of the many music biopics we have seen lately like ‘Walk the Line’ or ‘Ray’ but, even though the jokes came non-stop, most of them were pretty stupid and, above all, not really funny. The point is that everything” read more

" OMG LOL LOOK, IT'S THE LONG LOST BROTHER OF CHARLIE MANSON AND BRIAN WILSON Yet another one of my house mate's picks. He insisted that we watch this and now that we're both on a sober health nut kick, I can tell you this didn't go down quite as nicely as I'd wished. I'd sneak a peek at my wrist watch every now and then, wondering how long this shit was going to last. I understand that the film is supposed to parody biopics and music legends in general but the jokes were so overdone that I fe"

"23.7 Loistava elämänkertaelokuva, vaikkei oikeasti olekkaan elämänkerta kenestäkään. Vaikka kaikki elokuvan vaiheet onkin tuttuja oikeista kaltaisistaan, tässä sitä kuitenkin vedetään himan koomisempaan suuntaan. Muita positiivisia asioita mm. simppelikesto ja Reillyn loistotulkinta pääosassa."

“The turn of the decade, John C Reilly dependable dramatic actor to unspeakably funny man. The songs, the cameo's, John C Fucking Reilly, laughs upon laughs. A musical biopic parody done to almost perfection and makes you wish there really was a Dewey Cox.” read more
