School of Rock
Warning: Video Contains Possible Spoiler
Your never too old, nor too young to learn how to rock
To simply put it, "The School of Rock," rocks. In an era where most kid films generally suck, "School of Rock" reminds us of the times when kid movies actually used to be cool like the Home Alone films (the first two that is). The story is about an out of work rock musician played by Jack Black, living with his friend and former band member, trying to form a band for the battle of the bands, but he's forced by his friend's girlfriend to get a normal job. However, as luck would have it, his friend gets a call to be a substitute teacher at a private school, so Jack goes and poses as the new wood be teacher. Don't get me wrong. This film still has the typical cliche father figure teaching kids about confidence and all that feel good crap we expect, but it does it in a unique and funny way. For example, in the film, Jack teaches the kids about rock and roll, and how to stick it to the man. "School of Rock" is a hillarious film that many families will come to enjoy.
Jack is simply funny in this film as he teaches kids about rock and roll. In one scene, he tries to lie to the principal about how he sings to teach boring subjects, or the one where he dives into the audience during a song and they drop him had me busting a gut. I honestly don't remember when I laughed so hard during kid film.
However, with that being said, the film is still subject to the typical happy ending and all the that feel good jazz we in America expect. However, this may be the one of the few films out there that adults and kids can watch together.
"School of Rock" rocks the house. Jack is simply brilliant in his dumbass role while still providing the quality entertainment families can enjoy. A great film for the entire family.
