"Walk Hard" on DVD

By admin Published: February 11, 2008


The fake music-biopic starring John C. Reilly was a box-office dud, but maybe people will rediscover it on DVD on April 8. And I had a good time when the promotional tour came to the Rock Hall in Cleveland. (Photo above from that gig.) Full announcement of the DVD after the jump ...

The Golden Globe® nominated[1] fictional biopic Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story arrives on DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ April 8, 2008 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Created by Jake Kasdan (Zero Effect, TV’s “Freaks and Geeks”) and Judd Apatow (Superbad, Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), this parody tells the story of the trials and tribulations of the greatest non-existent rock star of all time, Dewey Cox, played by Oscar®-nominee John C. Reilly (Chicago). Riley is supported by an incomparable ensemble cast including Jenna Fisher (TV’s “The Office,” Blades of Glory), “Saturday Night Live” alums Tim Meadows and Chris Parnel, and includes cameos by Paul Rudd, Justin Long, and a host of musical talents from The Temptations to Ghostface Killaha. Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story will be available on Two-disc Unrated DVD and Blu-Ray™ High-Def with over two hours of hilarious bonus material, including 30 minutes of all-new footage, deleted and extended scenes and musical sequences, and much more for an SRP of $29.96 (DVD) and $43.95 (Blu-ray). The film will also be available as a single-disc R-rated DVD for $28.95 and on PSP for $24.94.

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Synopsis:

One of the most iconic figures in rock history, Dewey Cox (John C. Reilly) had it all: the women (over 411 served), the friends (Elvis, The Beatles) and the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle (a close and personal relationship with every pill and powder known to man). But most of all, he had the music that transformed a dimwitted country boy into the greatest American rock star who never lived. A wild and wicked send-up of every musical biopic ever made, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story is gut-busting proof that when it comes to hard rocking, living and laughing, a hard man is good to find.
