School of Rock

Updated on August 15, 2011

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.

      Well first of all Aimee. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting, as I always love getting new visitors from time to time. Secondly, I think you may have misread my entire web page, as I wasn't talking about an actual school of rock, it was a movie called "School of Rock", where a obnoxious guy poses as a teacher at a private school, for money. Then later tries to teach them how to play rock and roll music, drawing from such inspirations like Van Halen, Led Zepplin, Green Day and other types of hard rock bands. You see, this web page is actually a movie analysis of that said film, so I'm sorry to disappoint you, but this isn't about an actual school.

      However, if you want to go to a school that teaches rock and roll, then I would probably google it, as that's probably the best source to find one. Or look through the yellow pages. I apologize for the confusion, and I hope you find the school your looking for. By the way, your right about Miley Cyrus and Justin Beiber as their music is nothing more another teen facade like the back street boys or n' sync back in the day, that we all know will die out as time goes on...

      This is a good web page I do have a question though um What Kind Of Bands Or Just Solo Singers Does The School Of Rock Teach about because I went to something similer like this when I was 8 years old in 2005 and the teacher had us write down what music artists influence us in music and I put Ozzy Osbourne, Marilyn Manson, AC/DC, Kiss, Led Zepplin, Motley Crue, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, and The Rolling Stones and the teacher said to me sorry Aimee but the singers that wrote down are unpremited here as in we can't teach you about these musicians so I said well then what artists do you teach about here coz they had us do this on the first day there and they said we can only teach you about kid singers that is for kids between ages 4 and 11 the ones you wrote are unecceptable here there for if you wanna learn about these bands you will have to go to some other music school. So I would just like to know if the bands that I told you I listed are allowed to be tought about at the school of rock coz if they are NOT allowed to be tought about I DON'T like your school because that means you teachers at the school of rock are NOT teaching true music artists to these kids and I hope you NOT teaching them about these damn kid singers like Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber coz if you are your school is a bad one.
