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

This movie was a waste of time,talent and money. It copyed the Walk The Line Movie. Which is a fav of mine. It made fun of The Man in Black. Tasteless I rate this movie a ZERO.

What a waste of time and money! I love comedies, but I'm going to keep a list of the names of the people who made this movie in my wallet so I don't make the mistake of seeing a movie that any of these people had anything to do with. Total garbage. Amazing actors wasted with no story, no funny lines and no songs you've ever heard before, so you can't even get into the music. Really hard to

The best part of Walk Hard, oddl enough, is the music. I might not care to see Walk Hard" a second time, but I can't wait to hear it again. Full Review

Strums the genre for considerable laughs, with John C. Reilly playing the title balladeer from teen to senior citizen, generating enough goodwill to offset the flat sections and a decidedly juvenile streak. Full Review

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. Full Review
James Berardinelli
For those who enjoy the saturation style of humor and appreciate the way in which parody is not pushed too far into the absurd, Walk Hard is not without merit. Full Review
