If a movie is funnier than anything to come out in the last five years, it should be celebrated. This is the only watchable parody that I have ever seen. This is also the funniest parody. This movie covers the evolution of music from the 40's, starting with black artists singing blues and ending with 00's hiphop, as an artist samples 80's music to make his hit. Through it all, we observe psychedelia, the Beatles,and Elvis. This movie is awesome.

A brilliant parody on country and rock stars through the decades, 'Walk Hard' is full of one liners and hilarious gags. While it suffers from predictability and repetitiveness, the performances are entertaining and the original music is actually very impressive.

Entertaining and funny if you're a bio-pic fan, but otherwise it may seem a bit aimless and repetitive.

Great funny movie starring john c Riley and Pam from the office. I really liked the story of Dewey cox and the life and story of him is amazing. I can't wait to see this movie again and the writing is great.

Very good movie. While some of its gags don't land as strong as they could've, most of this spoof is well-written and very funny, featuring smart satirizations of its real-life musicians, hilarious music and a great lead performance from Reilly, as well as great supporting performances from Meadows, Fischer and Wiig, and awesome cameos from Long, Black, Schwartzman, Rudd, Hill and White.

Lame and disgusting! One of the dumbest parodies I have ever seen. (First and only viewing - Early 2008 in theaters)

I rather enjoyed it, but I'm a big blues fan

Ridiculous, and extremely over the top in its humor and characterization. However, it is a great parody of the rock and roll biopic. Tim Meadows is especially great.

How the Academy snubbed this one we'll never know. It has everything!

I laughed from start to finish hoping I didn't laugh so hard I missed a joke.  Apatow's band of merry men all made appearances here including: Paul Rudd (had me in tears playing John Lennon) and Apatow's merry woman, Jane Lynch.  My absolute favorite part (I mean I couldn't stop laughing/talking about it well after it happened) was Dewey Cox's time in India with The Beatles.  Paul Rudd is John.  Jack Black is nothing like Paul McCartney, Justin Long is George Harrison and Jason Schwartzman is Ringo Starr.  Long and Schwartzman nailed, fucking nailed it.  I mean It was a little hard to tell who was really behind that facial hair and that nose.  Rudd's was also spot on and I think Black's was just to crack us the fuck up.  Another memorable moment was little Frankie Muniz's Buddy Holly.  Fucking priceless.  Talk about shocked to find Jack White played Elvis!  He was hilarious.  I didn't know he had it in him!  Another prize moment was the song "Let's Duet."  The song is heavily laden with sexual innuendos cleverly disguised (maybe not so disguised) as innocent song lyrics.  I can't wait to get my hands on the soundtrack.  Cox's Bob Dylan was too funny.  I think I have to see this movie many more times to get everything in here.

Funny and witty, Walk Hard also succeeds from John C. Reilly's strong performance.
