  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
With a satirical ring to it, this film tells the story of a fictional musician who struck it big with his first hit, Walk Hard. The tale begins with Dewey Cox (Reilly) reflecting on his life as a boy, when he accidentally sliced his brother in half. With a couple of failed marriages, umpteen kids, drugs, sex, and rock

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD shows an acceptable picture quality, with solid black levels and decent shadow delineation. Color fidelity is good, with nicely defined fleshtones
