Due to Judd Apatow’s involvement with Walk Hard, I really had high hopes. I’m afraid those hopes were dashed. Walk Hard was an exercise in gratuitous vulgarity that totally doused the few truly funny moments that existed.
While the lyrics to Dewey Cox’s songs were uncouth, they were so creatively dirty you couldn’t help but laugh. But that’s where the creativity ended. Unfortunately, they decided to go overboard with the easy profanity, sex-jokes, and visual crudity so often I was rolling my eyes at the sheer stupidity of it all.
And that sums up Walk Hard pretty well. They just tried to do too much and took the easy way out too often. It got to the point I was watching the clock because I was bored out of my mind with the movie, and that’s never a good thing.
Avoid this movie and spare yourself the pain.
