comment

Dewey Cox (John C. Reilly) is a fictional amalgam of former biopic subjects like Jim Morrison, Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and many others. Growing up in the Forties, he experiences a familial tragedy similar to those of Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, and vows to live "double good." Hit songs, groupies, drugs, kids, divorces, fights and smashed bathroom sinks follow in profusion.
