Customer Review

on 4 September 2006
Jack Black has always been one funny guy. Having been in the rather poor 'Shallow Hal' then there may have been a few doubts. However as soon as Black released an album for his 'band' Tenacious D his popularity sky-rocketed. & rightly so! Here, Jack Black leads 'School of Rock' to being the best family film for years.

Dewey Finn (Black) is kicked out of his band who can't take him seriously & in a wonderfully illogical sequence of events he ends up as a supply teacher for a class of upper class rich kids before turning them into his own new band. The fact that it's completely stupid is of no consequence; the film is so entertaining & up beat, not only from Black but from the brilliant classic rock soundtrack, that you'll forget the absurdity. It's clear how much Black loves rock in real life, & so it comes across on screen completely naturally as if there is no script at all. Just take the scene where Black gets the children to play Deep Purple's 'Smoke on The Water' as he breaks into a his own over the top little guitar solo, thrashing his body & squealing, 'Let's go!'

By the end of the film, after the nice happy ending, i guarantee that you will feel at least a little uplifted & cheerful, whatever your age.

5 stars because it happily serves it's purpose as a cheesey family film with some real laughs & a soundtrack that features AC/DC, Led Zeppelin & even Metallica!
