Walk Hard

This movie was great.  John C. Reilly was the perfect choice to play Dewey Cox.  Sure, he doesn't look all that much like Dewey, but he sure does sound like him.  Jenna Fischer did a great job with Darlene as well.  I love that this movie showed the good and the bad.  It also explained Dewey's long absense from music.  I never knew about his father and brother and their tragic accidents.  Now, the songs make all the more sense as I see what inspired them.  I have always like Dewey Cox but had almost forgotten about him.  This movie is a great tribute to Dewey Cox, and should bring his music to the forefront again.
