Lampooning the Musical Biopic
"Walk Hard, the Dewey Cox Story" is a cleverly written and acted send-up that pokes fun at recently produced musical biopics like "Ray" and "Walk the Line". This humorous tale is a comedic reframing of many of the well worn tropes and biographical clichés so prevalent within these kinds of rags to riches narratives (think: "Coal Miner’s Daughter", "Buddy Holly Story"). With hilarious parodies and a fantastic soundtrack of original music, Dewey Cox’s rocky road to redemption is a better than average spoof movie that will appeal to both music buffs and fans of comedy alike.
