School of Rock

We will teach the world how to rock 'n' roll!

Fired from his band, rock guitarist and vocalist Dewey Finn takes a job as a 4th grade substitute teacher at an uptight private school where his free livin' lifestyle, attitude, music and antics soon influences the students to explore other sides of themselves the school doesn't encourage. Finn's real goal in taking the job is to recruit a 9-year-old guitar prodigy, Yuki, to become the lead guitarist in a band that would be able to win a "battle of bands", solving Finn's money problems and re-establishing him as a respected rocker.

This fun movie starts Jack Black as a no-good rock n' roll bum who abuses the system but when he realises that these children are counting on him, he soon changes his tune. It's more a feel good movie then comedy but once again Jack Black does a wonderful job at playing Dewey Finn.

The video and audio quality of this release are exceptional and match that with a plethora of special features and this is a very impressive release, unfortunately it's more aimed at the children then adults but I'm sure everyone will get a few laughs from this movie.
