John C. Reilly plays it strictly for laughs in this irreverent spoof biopic of fictional rock and roll legend Dewey Cox. Friend of Elvis and the Beatles, the iconic figure of Dewey Cox bestrides the decades, churning out the hits in a career that has taken him from hick balladeer to national institution. Although he's tried every drug known to man, and bedded more than his fair share of beautiful women, the time has come for Dewey to face his greatest test - trying to win the heart of his beautiful backing singer Darlene (Jenna Fischer). But with his popularity showing no signs of abating, will the rock and roll maverick finally be able to put his hell-raising life behind him and settle down to a life of domestic bliss?

Our review

"Ripping on Walk The Line and Ray, this mock bio hits all the right keys with some decent performances, well-written, original musical numbers and no end of classy cameos. Reilly holds it all together well enough but you can't stop that niggling feeling that Will Ferrell just wasn't available."
