* MagnumOpus: Dewey spends much of his musical career and, indeed, much of his life working on his magnum opus "Beautiful Ride," a song that encompasses an entire lifetime of ups and downs and which is so grand in scope that at various points in its creation it requires a veritable army of singers, musicians, and [[UpToEleven barnyard animals]] to perform it. Indeed, it is ''such'' a crowning achievement in Cox's life that, after its first and only live performance, [[ParodiedTrope he drops dead, his life's work complete]].'

** One of the songs attempted during Dewey's first recording session? A country version of ''"That's Amore".'' It's so bad that it shakes the producer's faith in the Jewish people.

Added DiffLines:

** The bit where John tells Ringo that he's lucky they still let him play the drums is a reference to a supposed John quote that Ringo wasn't the best drummer in the band (which he never actually said), when in reality John remained close with Ringo even after the band broke up and frequently hired him as his drummer.

** And as with NoCelebritiesWereHarmed, AsYouKnow is used liberally to lampshade the absurdity; at one point, Dewey's childhood sweetheart Edith describes herself as "Dewey Cox's thirteen-year-old girlfriend". Edith is played by the then 34-year-old Kristen Wiig, again with absolutely no effort to disguise her age.

** And then there's "Black Sheep," Dewey's attempt to be "artsy," parodying Brian Wilson's CreatorBreakdown when trying to record ''SMiLE''.

* TheComicallySerious: Averted with most of the acting, where the characters know perfectly well what kind of movie they're in, but played straight with the cinematography, which plays as, in the director's words, "someone hijacking a real music biopic."
