Film Preview: Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007)

Poster Rating: D; C-

Review: Nothing spectacular. It’s just another placeholder that just happens to use a thematically appropriate font.

The poster is a bit deceptive. It uses the type of pose that was typical of Jimi Hendrix in the 60s and 70s. This film has the looks of a Johnny Cash-style Comedy-documentary, thus this poster feels entirely inappropriate.

Trailer Rating: B-

Review: If I have to see one more trailer that associates itself with the makers of Talladega Nights, Superbad (which JUST came out for heaven’s sake) or any other such comedy, I think I’ll scream. This parody of Walk the Line is almost too offensive to be making its way to the screen.

Oscar Prospects:

I’d like to say Oscar will ignore it and they probably will, but you have to give John C. Reilly credit for finally landing a workable lead role.
