"...The music may be perfectly awful -- actually it is both perfect and awful -- but its power, this movie suggest is nothing to laugh at. Or so you might realize, if you could only stop laughing long enough to form the thought..." New York Times "...The satire is so deadpan that you sometimes have to pinch yourself to realize how dead-on it is....The unmatchable Fred Willard tears it up..." USA Today "...A gift from comedy heaven..." Rolling Stone "...The gifted repertory company again creates an amusing gallery of incisively observed characters, riffing off each other with enjoyment levels that frequently prove contagious..." Variety "...[A] sublime, dizzying satire of American folk music....A movie that re-creates its object of satire with such pitch perfect flair that all but erases the line between derision and love..." Entertainment Weekly "...There is plenty of top-flight comedy in this brisk picture..."Premiere ...[With] the same blend of serious musicality and unabashed silliness that the trio injected into their metal tunes for THIS IS SPINAL TAP, gently ribbing their chosen musical form even as they pay it loving homage..." Box Office "...Few filmmakers today can show us our most ridiculous selves with as much merciless wit and tender mercy..." Los Angeles Times "...Hilarious..." Movieline's Hollywood Life "[T]he filmmakers have an obvious knowledge of and affection for the music, creating a rich game of reference-spotting for the folk cognoscenti."

And he can sing, too, 15 monumental spoofs, as clever as they are melodic, that cover the musical waterfront from rockabilly to punk..."Los Angeles Times "[W]hile it delivers belly laughs at the rate of AIRPLANE!, many scenes in WALK HARD have an undertone of real sentiment, owing much to the expert playing of John C. Reilly and co-stars Jenna Fischer and Kristen Wiig."Sight and Sound "It's a cleverly packaged story about a patently phony musician....It's a smarty-pants satire that mocks and embraces almost every cliche in the biography playbook."New York Times "[The film] loves what it's sending up: the pleasure, ego, and sheer exhaustion of what happens behind the music." -- Grade: BEntertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] scene with Cox meeting The Beatles is a delight..."Empire0.1228517
