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.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideFunny in places but struggles to make you pay attention. Had it been in the cinema I would have gone to the pub instead
Meh.By Ami from England , 25 Mar 2009Considering it has Jack Black as the main character expectations were pretty high. Unfortunatly it lacked...
Clumsy attempts at slapstick left me begging for it to end.
Funnier than you'd expect!By AverageLee (12 reviews) from Bolton , 25 Mar 2009I like Jack Black. He brings an honest kind of stupidity to the screen that transcends his peers. This is obviously a kids movie, but don't let that put you off, as it has lots of smile-inducing stuff in it. Also, it features a very brief but awesome comedy serenade from Jack to this wrestler chap, which I loved....I'm childish though.
