Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
Did 2007’s WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY kill the music biopic or save it? 
Written by Judd Apatow and Jake Kasdan, who also directed, WALK HARD follows the tumultuous journey of Dewey Cox, a fictional rock ’n’ roll legend across 60 years of music history, all while gleefully mocking the cliches of rockstardom and the entire music biopic genre. John C. Reilly delivers a standout performance with his comedic and musical prowess.
A box office failure, WALK HARD has since developed a rabid cult following. It haunts every subsequent music biopic with its biting critique, endlessly quotable lines, and an outstanding original soundtrack of pitch-perfect parodies that are as catchy as they are funny.
