The only gale-force laughter in later scenes comes when the hero meets the Beatles.

Like the drunk guy who squeezes your arm and tells the same joke over and over until you laugh, goddamn you, laugh!

The entire film has three repetitive jokes: Dewey cut his brother in half, Dewey can't smell, and he's going to take drugs. So it's kind of amazing how well the film works.

... starts out brilliantly playing with the tired tropes of musical biopics before utterly losing its way.

Awfully uneven, sometimes not funny at all, but John C. Reilly is so goofily sincere and Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow include enough comedic gems to make it worthwhile.

John C. Reilly does Dewey Cox as a hilarious stoner, beer gut middle-aged teen, with a touch of Imus. Move over, Britney Spears.

Como sátira às inúmeras e formulaicas cinebiografias de músicos célebres, o filme funciona maravilhosamente bem. Pena que recaia com tanta freqüência na paródia, que peca por um exagero que embaraçaria até mesmo o trio Zucker-Abraham-Zucker.

In many ways outrageous -- but not outrageous for long enough -- Walk Hard has tremendous appeal and entertainment value.

Another comedy winner; if you have to ask why, it's because it involves the Knocked Up guy. Hilarious - even the Beatles bit, this looks set to be a hit.
