When his band votes him out due to his embarrasing musical antics, Dewey has to make the rent somehow. After intercepting a call for his substitute-teacher roomie Ned, Dewey finds himself in front of a class of elite elementary school students. Dewey decides to take on the music program and makes it his goal to teach them the gospel of rock and roll. His ulterior motive is to get them to compete against his former band for a cash prize.

School of Rock submitted by SBNB on July 12, 2014, 10:54pm I wouldn't say it's funny, but it is entertaining. And the music's not bad.

funny, good music submitted by airgood on August 5, 2014, 10:55am The plot is completely unbelievable. Jack Black is pretty good and funny; the kids are also very well cast. The music in it is great!

Cool submitted by Lmin on June 24, 2019, 5:44pm This movie is hilarious!

rock on submitted by FordAlpha on August 13, 2019, 10:56pm Jack Black plays essentially the same character in every movie I've seen him in (admittedly, not that many). Fortunately, I enjoy his brand of prickly-shelled, squishy-middled buffoonery. "School of Rock" is ludicrous but entertaining. The kids in the cast are very good.
