So DisapointingBy AlexPhillips (43 reviews) from UK , 05 Mar 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]I was so so disappointed with this movie. Being a huge fan of Jack Black I had such expectations of this film hoping for a return to the School of Rock form, after the dreadful King Kong. Alas it was not to be.
Although Black does the best he can with the material provided, the script is is simply not funny and I can honesty say that I did not laugh at all and rarely did a slight smile graze my lips. The plot itself is fine. It is the simple do-gooder tail of making children happy and the achievement of personal dreams and goals. However one does have to wonder why anyone bothered to make it, since we have seen the same thing many times before. Also the acting is good enough for its purposes leaving you with the impression that it is Black alone which makes the movie watchable, since it's hard to imagine anyone else in that role.
Putting it short, give this one a miss and watch School of Rock or High Fidelity once again.

No worth itBy a customer from Scotland , 09 Jun 2009I thought this film was the worst Jack Black film ive ever seen and I even enjoyed the Pick of Destiny. Wouldn't bother to watch
These nachos are stale!By CityGent (53 reviews) from Burton Upon Trent , 04 Jun 2009This one is going to be short and sweet. If you want a funny Jack Black movie get School of Rock, if you want a wrestling movie get Mickey Rouke's brilliant The Wrestler. Whatever you do don't get this pile of complete tosh!
Nacho LibreBy n1pp3r (10 reviews) from Wiltshire , 30 May 2009Not great in my opinion. Although i love Jack Black and in particular in Hi-Fidelity, this was a bit of a let down to be honest. I only put it on the list because of 'him'. Was ok, but definitely not one to buy, or indeed, watch again.
No no no!By a customer from Leeds , 26 May 2009Please do not waste your time, this is boring, slow and I was so close to stopping it but was waiting for it to pick up - but it never did!
Ouch - Jack Black - you can do better!!
Not badBy a customer from Altrincham , 25 May 2009Unfortunately Jack Black has only got one acting style so if you've seen one you may as well have seen them all...
