Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

It was a rainy and dreary day today so it was off to the multiplex.  Lee picked Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.  This was a parody of biopics of rock stars.  The Dewey Cox character greatly resembled Lee's favorite, Johhny Cash.  He married young and had several children and then feel in love with another musician who was a dead ringer for June Carter.  The Dewey Cox character later in the movie "became" Bob Dylan.  That segment was filmed in black and white as a take off on Don't Look Back.  There was also a scene with Dewey and the Beatles with the Maharishi in India doing the transcendental meditation thing. Other rock stars that were referenced in the film included Jerry Lewis Lewis, Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, the Temptations and the Partridge Family.  Lyle Lovett, Jackson Browne, Jewel and Eddie Vedder actually appeared.
