The Hollywood Reporter

Sticks to formula but delivers some seriously dumb laughs.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Works just like a Tenacious D song. The movie feels giddy and eruptive, dopily enthralled with itself, and more or less made up on the spot.

As a movie, it’s a mess — and lazy, too.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Baked and half-baked, Tenacious D does manage to give the term potty humor a new meaning. That's some kind of genius, right?

The Pick of Destiny is fast and funny, and you can't beat the songs (especially the not exactly heartwrenching Dude I Totally Miss You).

I loved the story line and the comedy. I like The D's music and Jack Black is hilarious. It was cool getting to see KG act hes really funny too. I just thought the language was a little over the top....

This movie is for the fans - but who isn't a fan of the D?

By szostakj
If you are a fan of the D, you'll love this! Great music, great lyrics and great JB and KG. Lots of inside stuff, which makes it more fun for those of us in the know. If you don't know the D, you...

I'm glad I went with the dudes and not the wife. I have looked upon the screen and was magically transported to my innerheadbanger. Believe in the D for they believe in you, and the those who rock,...

Wasn't worth the wait

By Schaefer12
Being a Tenacious D fun for many years, I was really looking forward to this movie. While I found their HBO series very funny, I found this movie to be a cheap re-hash of the same jokes and story...

It had its moments. It was worth the ticket price so i do not regret going to see this movie....

Totally Amazing!

By B-radTheCoug
This movie is awesome, especially if you appreciate The D.  Jack Black is hilarious, as is the brief cameo role of Ben Stiller.  The movie is funny, but ultimately, it is the music of...
