One word to describe this film? Funny. I will admit, you can tell how this movie did not do to well in the box office. I do not see how this movie does not get the credit it deserves, even though they drop the F-bomb about 100+ times, but I still find this movie funny. I am not the only one who likes this movie, I know that for a fact.

This is basically what happens, The movie first takes place in Kickapoo, Missouri. Jack Black is a kid (Maybe about ten years old?) with a super religious family. He writes a song using strong words and his father, played by Meat Loaf, goes all out on him and slaps him silly. Jack Black then prays to his Ronnie James Dio poster for help, then Dio comes alive and gives JB advice. Dio tells him to go to Hollywood and form the greatest band of all time. JB listens to what Dio tells him, and he travels to Hollywood.

He arrives in Hollywood, California where he spots a man playing guitar on the beach, with a cup in front of him, accepting money. The man is finished playing the song, and then he starts a new one, but JB is driving away his crowd. They then bust out into a song they call "Classico" and they totally rock it. A pizza man then asks "Who are you?". The man then tells him that they call him KG Solo Man 5000, and he tends to keep it that way. He flicks the guitar pick at JB, and he keeps it.

I'm just going to Leave it at that and let you see it for yourself.

KG (left) trains JB in the ways of rock.

So this movie is my favorite. I love this movie because it's funny, awesome, and it's full of rock music, which is very awesome!

I recommend this movie if you are mature enough for the R rating and sexual language/images.
