Following a childhood tragedy, Dewey Cox follows a long and winding road to music stardom. Dewey perseveres through changing musical styles, an addiction to nearly every drug known and bouts of uncontrollable rage.
Decent watch at best, won't watch again, but can recommend. I only recommend this as I think enough people like J.C. Reilly, and SNL style skits. This movie is essentially a long series of SNL sketches sewn together. I'm not a fan of this style of writing because it doesn't seem to matter what order you put some of the bits in, it's just stopping the story to tell a joke or two, moving onto another joke or two, etc., until they decide to go back to the part of the movie that progresses the story. Perhaps, watching a movie like this critically is counter intuitive, but even if I were to turn my brain off and enjoy it, I'm not a fan of drug humor, Dewey Cox is a jerk, and the music focused comedy isn't that good to me, despite the music actually being enjoyable itself. "Let's Duet" was really good though. There something to like in here, and I can see it: it's just not enough to get me to come back when there are so many options out there.
