The pendulum keeps swinging back and forth on this upcoming musical biopic spoof from director Jake Kasdan and producer Judd Apatow. Sometimes we see photos or trailers or listen to the music and think this could be good, but then we this mock video for the movie’s title track and we think the movie just looks dumb.
Mostly it’s because John C. Reilly looks more like Chris Isaac than he looks like Johnny Cash. I know that’s not really a strong thing to worry about, but still, he looks like Chris Isaac. And that just adds another strange level to the movie, because after all Chris Isaac is certainly not movie biopic material. (Though does anyone remember his sitcom?)
Regardless, Dewey Cox certainly as some “proving myself to do.” His words not ours.
