Jack Black plays a rock musician that gets kicked out of his band prior to the big battle of the bands contest. Unable to hold a job, Jack is pressured to pay up or get out by his best friends wife (Jack rents a room from them). Other than his music, Jack has no ambition towards work until he happens to answer the phone from his friend.

"School of Rock" has been called formulaic, predictable, silly, etc. What it hasn't been called is boring or uninteresting. That's what makes this movie so great. Even though you pretty much know what is going to happen through all of the film, you enjoy every minute of it. From Black's idiotic Dewey character to his outrageous scheme to find lost rock glory, this entire film entertains. With a solid supporting cast and brilliant young actors and actresses, this film is worth the price.    Much …

THE SCHOOL OF ROCK is about a man named Dewey Finn who just won't "grow up." Dewey has been doing odd jobs the last several years, living off his roommate and best friend, all so he can keep playing with his band and eventually get their big break.

School of Rock will forever embody what Jack Black may have been, if not for a little band known as Tenacious D. In a world... Where Dewey needs a job...and no one will hire him because he's a rock-loving, stoner...until he impersonates his room-mate...to sub in a preppy, private school's music class...comes: "School of Rock!" Jack Black was made for this movie and visa-versa. He is given the space he needs to go rampant with his wild antics of rockacious fortitude; Like Robin Williams as an auction …

Pros: Jack Black, Mike White, Joan Cusack, adorable children, music, hilarious!     Cons: plot is kinda weird, stereotyped kids     The Bottom Line: Jack Black is about to rock, and I salute him.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. The trailers for School of Rock made it look like a mildly amusing comedy. But when I found out that it was written by Mike White ( Chuck and Buck, The Good Girl), I …
