4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 24 July 2004
By R. Haig
Format:DVD
"School of Rock" isn't going to win Oscars, but its feel good, laugh-out-loud formula is guaranteed to win you over.
Black puts on a likable performance as the hapless would-be-teacher, the young actors and actresses do an excellent job as his pupils, and the music is great. What more do you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of life's guilty pleasures! 14 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
There's some things in life that you know you shouldn't like, and it goes against all good sense to like. Things like 'Meat Loaf' albums, and the 'Sister Act' and 'Ghostbusters' films, and the old 'Transformers' TV series. 'School of Rock' slides into this category effortlessly.

Jack Black plays a disenchanted musician who gets kicked out of his band for being a little too stage-greedy, and uses his friend's name to get himself a job as a substitute teacher for the fifth grade in a private prep school. When he learns that the kids have some musical ability, he forms a band with them, and takes them to the Battle of the Bands competition.

The storyline is far from serious, or realistic, but it never pretends to be anything it's not. Black is actually quite convincing as Dewey Finn, and some of his speeches are hysterical. Highlights include:

'I pledge allegiance... to the band... of Mr Schneebly... I will not fight him... for creative control...'

The terrible disease the children suffer from: 'stick-it-to-da-Man-niosis'!

Superb film - I was laughing all the way through!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaboot it. 24 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Sod training. If anyone is to teach anything, they have to be enthusiastic about their subject. Jack Black nails that. Starting off as a slacker just trying to get money, and then being completely inspired when he is able to teach something he knows and loves.
As usual, Joan Cusack isn't on screen enough. As a matter of fact, her part is just right. The film isn't about her, but you absolutely know that could have been a stereotyped crabby / repressed headmistress role will be taken outside and given a good kicking. It makes you think what she'd be like playing opposite Alan Rickman. And if there is any Hollywood star brave enough to appear in the same film.
Did anyone think the bit about her when she used to be fun was a reference to "Say Anything"? No matter.
But I digress. For once I had a look at the extra features. There is a brilliant 5 seconds or less of the rehersal for the "teaching Zack well known riffs" scene. The commentaries are quite good. The kids' one is a bit rambling as they get bored with it, but they seem genuinely OK and spend a good bit of the time trying to persuade Robert Tsai to talk, which was sweet.
Things wrong with the film? The final show costumes were a bit naff. Very strange, since pretty much everything else was cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocking film!!! 30 July 2005
Format:DVD
This is a great film for all the family. As a 20 year old I was a little sceptical about this film and that it would be another kiddie film but I was very surprised.
The film is about an aging Rocker who has failed to make it who then gets kicked out of his band. Being given grief by his best friend's girl friend to start paying rent and not wasting his life away he impersonates his best friend to become a substitute teacher at the best prep school in the country.
From this point it focuses around a group of "geeky" school kids who transform into a fairly good band and play an amazing set at the Battle of the Bands.
This is a great film Jack Black is brilliant as the teacher; this part just seemed to be perfect for him. There are some great interactions with Joan Cusack who is cast as the school principle. The children seem to be a good bunch musicians and it will be interesting to see if any of the become major performers either acting or music in the future.
I would certainly recommend it to anyone, the DVD has a few interesting documentaries which are worth a watch but by no means would I buy the DVD because of them. The film however can more than sell it on its own.

By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Playing to every music-loving ten-year-old's fantasies, this Richard Linklater film pokes fun at school administrators, pushy parents, kids forced into adult molds too soon, an educational establishment which allows little room for fun in the classroom, and a kid's desire to live a life that's secret from his parents. Great fun to watch and often very funny, the film is full of clichés and stereotyped characters, but that's why it works so well for kids--they can see aspects of themselves in several characters, recognize their own insecurities, but see that life is fun.
Dewey Finn (Jack Black), a manic rock-and-roll wannabe who has lost his job, intercepts a phone call to his roommate, Ned Schneebly (Mike White), about a substitute teaching job at an elite urban prep school and, desperately needing cash, takes the job teaching uptight fifth graders with highly motivated parents. Pretending to be Ned and ostensibly teaching the fifth grade core curriculum, he quickly discovers the musical talents of his students, most of whom have been studying serious classical music. Believing they need to be loosened up, he abandons the curriculum and turns his class into a school of rock, hiding his efforts from the principal (neurotically played by Joan Cusack).
Black is off-the-wall with his manic energy, his mugging, and his free-wheeling heavy-metal style, and his good intentions are so obvious from the outset, that even adult viewers, firmly grounded in reality, get caught up in the fun. The kids are terrific as they break out of the molds into which they have been forced by their parents and school and, of course, they become better human beings in the process. Black is so outrageous--and so completely himself--that even the youngest viewer will see him as larger than life.
