Dewey Cox

The reviews convinced me not to see Dewey Cox when it came out, but my brother in law put me wise. It's a funny send up of rock and rock movies. While it uses Walk the Line as the basis for its narrative, the jokes are wide ranging from Jack White's cameo as Elvis to a all star comedy Beatles joke to a play on Brian Wilson's Smile madness.

At one point in the movie, Dewey Cox's career has cratered and he is on a TV variety show. There is a quick clip of his disco cover of David Bowie's Starman. The full version is below. So good.
