'Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story' (2007)

Though this Judd Apatow-produced spoof of biopics in general and "Walk the Line" in particular tanked when released that Christmas, there are many wonderfully risque, infantile moments, including a riotously funny sequence in which singer Dewey Cox (John C. Reilly) and the Beatles (uncredited Paul Rudd, Jack Black, Justin Long and Jason Schwartzman) drop acid while visiting a yogi in India. Their trip is a wonderfully inventive take-off of the 1968 Beatles animated classic "Yellow Submarine." Grade: Four tokes
