Because You Like Coldplay

Sick of Judd Apatow yet? Yeah, me too. Knocked Up was hardly a worthy follow-up to the pitch-perfect 40-Year-Old Virgin. Nonetheless, I'm intrigued by his new movie Walk Hard - The Dewey Cox Story. Not necessarily because of the story (Rutles, Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind redux), but first because Mr. Candy Butcher Mike Viola is responsible for much of the music (along with Van Dyke Parks for the protest songs), and second because of some of the cameos (Eddie Vedder as himself, Paul Rudd as John Lennon, Jack Black as a Macca-like figure).

Movie films can be so very good or so very bad. Walk Hard comes out in December so I guess we wait to find out where it stands.
