The up-and-down-and-up-again story of musician Dewey Cox, whose songs would change a nation. On his rock ‘n roll spiral, Cox sleeps with 411 women, marries three times, has 36 kids, stars in his own 70s TV show, collects friends ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to a chimp, and gets addicted to – and then kicks – every drug known to man; but despite it all, Cox grows into a national icon and eventually earns the love of a good woman – longtime backup singer Darlene.
Edith: What about my dreams?
Dewey Cox: Edith I told you I can’t build your candy house! It will fall apart, the sun will melt the candy, it won’t work!
Edith: It would if it never rains!
Dewey Cox: Edith, I am starting to think… that maybe you don’t believe in me.
Edith: I do believe in you. I just know you’re gonna fail.
Dewey Cox: So you’ve never done nothin’ you shouldn’t’ve done to me?
Edith: What have I ever done to you?
Dewey Cox: Like that time you woke up in the middle of the night and drank up all the milk! And then I got up to have my corn flakes and there was none left!
Edith: Dewey, you cheated on me!
Dewey Cox: Oh, so I’m a cheater, but you can just drink up all the milk.
Edith: It’s illegal to be married to two people at the same time, Dewey!
Dewey Cox: What about if, if you’re famous?
