Movies of 2011:#114: Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox StoryLet  me preface this by saying how much I adore John C. Reilly. In my  opinion, he remains one of the more versatile and talented actors - and  somewhat unnoticed - working in Hollywood today. His career shows how he  is able to fit in just about anywhere on the wide spectrum of drama and  comedy, and do so well in just about every instance. I am constantly  impressed by him. This film was no exception, and I thought his comedic  abilities shown through very well. I loved how evident the parody was,  and the supporting cast was incredible. Every single person was  on-point, and I especially loved the musicians who participated. My  favorite was probably the Beatles (Paul Rudd, Jack Black, Justin Long,  and Jason Schwartzmann), as well as Tim Meadows, Kristen Wiig, Jenna  Fischer, and Chris Parnell. It’s a well-put together comedy with a huge  number of laughs, and, even when it goes a little too far or repeats a  running gag one too many times, it’s enjoyable and a comedic look at  American music through the years.4/5 stars, thumbs up.
