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.

I liked Nacho Libre better. Jack Black is hilarious but needs to improve just a little more when it comes to rock & Roll!...

Too high school

By madison
Grow up. Music was good, rest of the story was stupid, crude and dark. Do they think it is cool to use the F word contstantly? Should have saved the money....
