We watch them so you don't have to

My husband Netflix'd the second stinker in about a month -- "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story." Apparently they didn't want the porn industry to have to think too hard when they came up with their own version.

What a freaking horrible ass movie. I realized about 10 minutes in that there was no turning back from the stupidity the movie promised we would be enduring for nearly 2 hours. I was, in fact, a proponent of turning the damn thing off and watching something -- anything -- else. But hubby being the hopeful soul he is thought he'd keep watching to see if it got better. Needless to say he was a little peeved when the damn thing finally ended. I napped through about half of it, so at least I can say I got some beauty sleep.

It was rather unfortunate that it sucked so bad. It had a great cast, peppered with actors from Saturday Night Live and The Office, like Jenna Fischer from "The Office," Kristen Wiig from SNL, and many others. Jack White had an amusing cameo as Elvis, and that was probably the most interesting 10 seconds of the whole damn movie. The main actor, John C. Reilly, appeared in another stinker last year, "Talladega Nights." (bleahh!!)He's actually a very talented singer, reminiscent of Chris Isaak. He appeared in "Chicago," the movie, as well. If you haven't seen that, rent "Chicago" instead, and thank your lucky stars you won't suffer through this awful film.
