    The tricky thing about parody movies is that the jokes get old fast and they're hit-and-miss. Walk Hard, a spoof of every musical biopic from "Ray" to "Walk the Line," is guilty on both counts. How lucky that when the jokes do hit, they kick major ass. show more

    If you want to escape all the deadly serious fare of this pre-awards season, run to Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.Why? Cox rocks. This rowdy spoof of music biopics is silly fun and often hilarious. show more

    dude, I thought it was hilarious. "It made fun of Walk The Line" Oh, come on. DUH! It's a satire....... geez. I thought it was a super good movie. and like nodoubt001 said. There was a ton of naked men in the movie and everyone flips out but no one gets upset when they put naked chicks in movies. You need to chill. I laughed like crazy in this movie. I saw this movie before I say Walk The Line so Walk the Line was all boring. lol =P
