This joyous farce is a big, big deal, and Jack Black is nothing less than majestic as a scruffy, irreverent rocker passing himself off as a pedagogue in a private school. Read full review
First and foremost a very funny film, and a very pleasant one that doesn't really have a villain. Credit for its hilarity goes largely to Black, who gives the performance of his career as a character who might have seemed merely coarse and crude in less gifted hands. Read full review
All Black, all the time, and could easily have been an exhausting mess. But the movie is coherent, hilarious and surprisingly sweet. Read full review
The School of Rock was made by gifted veterans of the American indie scene, but it's still the most unlikely great movie of the year. Read full review
School of Rock may be to Black what "The Nutty Professor" was to Jerry Lewis, or "Groundhog Day" was to Bill Murray - that rare, perfectly tailored opportunity to play against one's broadest impulses. Not to neutralize them, necessarily, but to tame them and turn them into something very human and charming. Read full review
Utterly adorable. Read full review
It plays even more like a bent version of Meredith Willson's "The Music Man" for the new millennium. Slinging a line of bull but displaying genuine affection for the youngsters he's bamboozling. Read full review
The film hits another comic mother lode in the byplay between Black and Cusack. Read full review
Even education can't kill the demon of fun in Black. Enroll in his class and you won't stop laughing. Read full review
It's one of the great have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too performances of the year. Read full review
