I'm glad we had just watched Coal Miner's Daughter earlier in the week before we saw Walk Hard--it helped to be familiar with the musical biopic genre before seeing this hardcore skewering of the same. I laughed a lot at the movie, but the jokes are so fast and furious that some of the narrative, and chances for deeper, character-based jokes, are sacrificed. Ultimately, as Erica put it, it's more Scary Movie than Spinal Tap.
(Oh, and there are a few hilarious-but-gratuitous scenes of full frontal nudity (male and female) that prevent me from recommending the movie to friends with kids. Well, and maybe all the drug stuff, too. Yeah, OK, completely unsuitable for kids.)
