Tim over at Not Now I’m Watching a Movie and Drinking a Beer is running a Jack Black showcase, A Week at Bernie’s, of which I am a part of with my look back at School of Rock and why I love it. He’s also offering the chance to win Black’s Bernie on DVD. Head on over and check it out.


School of Rock was the film that first put Jack Black on the radar of many people (myself included). In this guest post, Chris from the fantastic Terry Malloy’s Pigeon Coop sees how it holds up.


Say what you want about Jack Black but when he finds a role that fits, he can give some pretty entertaining performances. School of Rock (2003) doesn’t just fit with him; it’s the perfect fit. When it came out in 2003, Black was at the height of his Tenacious D fame and so the combination of film and over the top music was a match made in heaven.

Granted, if you really can’t stand Jack Black then this film is probably not the one that’s going to change your mind. Black is his usual brash, in-your-face self which many (including myself if not in moderation) can find grating. Yet here it all seems appropriate.

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but I really enjoyed School of Rock. I wish Black would pick more roles like that. Nice review.

    I haven’t seen this yet but looks like this is a role tailor-made for Jack Black!
