Particularly prevalent at the turn of the new millennium, the comedies of Judd Apatow defined the modern genre and brought the actors Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell to the forefront of the industry. Films such as Knocked UpSuperbadThe 40-Year-Old Virgin and Pineapple Express quickly became cult classics, launching the careers of several actors whilst proving highly popular with audiences worldwide.

Whilst this band of actors quickly became synonymous with cinema’s funniest genre movies, for the relative comedy newcomer John C. Reilly, it wasn’t until the release of the cultural juggernaut Step Brothers in 2008 that he would be recognised as a comedic talent. As such, the release of the Judd Apatow produced Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story went under the radar and was a rare box office flop for a relatively cheap $35 million film.

Despite this, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story remains a gem in Judd Apatow’s crown as a wonderfully bizarre satire of James Mangold’s Walk the Line and the landscape of 1960s music in general. Starring John C. Reilly in the lead role, the film follows the fictional Dewey Cox and his wonderfully mindless rise to overcome adversity and become a musical legend.
