Synopsis

Comedy. America loves Dewey Cox, but behind the music is the up-and-down-and-up-again story of a musician whose songs would change a nation. On his rock 'n roll spiral, Cox sleeps with four hundred and eleven women, marries three times, has twenty two children and fourteen step- children, stars in his own 1970s television show, collects friends ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to a chimp, and gets addicted to, and then kicks, every conceivable drug. Despite it all, Cox grows into a national icon and eventually earns the love of a good woman, longtime backup singer Darlene.
