1 Wow, you're really personalizing this. I have a feeling there is something regarding the whole "sibling death" thing that hits you a little too close to home. If so, it's better that I stop yanking your chain and leave you to your opinion. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 6, 2011, 3:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Johnny Cash has no special significance to me. Neither does John C Reilly. The only "cheesy formula" is an attitude of exagerated self-importance from second rate comedians who try to convince us they're lampooning some "cliche". Actually this is a way of selling crap to the public which lacks originality and just isn't funny. Your babbling about "sacred cows","cliches" is just your own exaggerated sense of self importance. None of these biopics are alike. The writers, producers and actors in movies like this know the kind of pseudo-critics who will buy this as parody of "sacred cows" who take themselves too seriously and need to learn to have a good laugh over their brother's death. Thank God we have John C Reilly and people like you (and the writers and producers) who have taught us all to laugh at death.

3 Well, Irbloom, I do appreciate your passion; clearly Johnny Cash has some sort of super-exalted untouchable status in your eyes. Look, I'm not into icons and sacred cows. In my world, nobody is above being lampooned. And the celebrity biopic format, which tends to take itself waaaayyyy too seriously, invites parody with its attitude of self-importance, not to mention the cheesy formula it always uses. (Sudden fame, trouble handling fame, heartbreak, fall from grace, redemption - a formula rife with cliches and just begging to be made fun of.) And as a said earlier, there are more appropriate people to blame for a movie you don't like, starting with the producers, writers and director. In the case of Walk Hard, that means exactly two people: Jake Kasdan and Judd Apatow. They are the ones who (supposedly) dissed your beloved Man in Black; the actor Mr Reilly was only following their direction. But hey, I'm sure you're not alone; there are probably some grim and earnest fans of the King Arthur mythos who would like to see everyone associated with Monty Python & The Holy Grail burned at the stake. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 5, 2011, 2:27 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I'll defend Elvis of Buddy Holly any day of the week over this brain-dead redneck idiot. He needs to go back to work at the filling station where he can make an honest contribution to society. Maybe his humor will be better appreciated whatever inbreds he sprung from. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 2:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 This is an uninspired, straightforward, almost scene by scene spoof of Walk the Line. In addition to spoofing the Johnny Cash biopic, the film throws in some Bob Dylan, Beatles and Beach Boys (specifically Brian Wilson) references as well. This is a disappointing film. The Dewey Cox double entendre gets worked to death in the movie with numerous references to male genitalia, along with a few actual close ups of the swinging appendages. This film misfires most of the time. It is neither very funny nor touching. It lacks both brains and heart. It looks like a quickie exploitation film. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 2:05 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The problem is that there was nothing funny about these biopics in the first place. The biopics are ususally paying tribute to someone who deserved a better. All that Reilly did was to copy the format of what had already been done, call it "parody" or "spoof" and wait for morons to tell him how brilliant his "satire" is. He can't sing, write, isn't funny and can't equal anyone that he intends to parody which makes him no better than whatever it is he thinks he is making fun of. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on May 2, 2011, 1:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Baloney. Walk Hard was funny as hell - a great sendup of the pompous celebrity biopic format - and Dewey Cox was based on lots of different people, not just on Johnny Cash. (Besides, I'd bet Cash wouldn't have found the movie offensive. What he WOULD have a problem with is the fawning hero worship that now surrounds him and angrily insists he is "above" being parodied.) Nor is Reilly the guy to blame for the movie anyway; he was neither the producer nor writer. You may as well insult supporting actors Tim Meadows and Harold Ramis and Jenna Fischer, and all the celebs with cameos, and all the real artists like the Temptations and Jackson Browne who appeared in the movie. Oh, and don't forget to defend the sacred honor of Elvis and Buddy Holly and Brian Wilson and Jim Morrison and the Beatles while you're at it. As for Reilly himself, he isn't close to boning. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 1, 2011, 1:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I don't know who told this idiot or his sidekick that they were funny but they were wrong. Humor at the expense of others is not humor. The Walk Hard movie which lampooned the death of Johnny Cash's brother and marital issues was serious lapse in taste. Somebody should sue. I get the idea that this was intended to be a parody of Walk The Line, Ray, The Doors and other assorted movies about late greats and we're expected to see this as satire. It's cheap sickening dog shit wrapped up in this package that supposed to sound creative. Satire has to be equal to or better than the original. This is neither. Mr Reilly should get a real job. -- Submitted By: (lrbloom) on February 9, 2011, 10:28 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
