52/159 David Mumpower Rocks harder than any movie has rocked since the days of Bill and Ted. Rock on!
52/52 Les Winan Even as someone who enjoyed their first album and has seen the D in concert, I couldn't find anything in the movie to keep me watching past the first 20 minutes.
173/200 Max Braden Even on fast forward I couldn't find anything fun about this movie.

Digg Button  
By now, probably the entire world knows the name Jack Black. Though up until a few years ago he was primarily used as fat guy comic relief in films, he's emerged as a legitimate star in his own right. He toplined the under-rated and sweet Shallow Hal, worked marvelously with a young cast in School of Rock, and starred in the disappointing but still massive King Kong.

What many people don't realize is that Black has gained a bit of a cult following thanks to his founding and performing in a comedy/rock band known as Tenacious D. Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny will be a fictional detailing of that band's evolution.

The story begins in Venice Beach, as JB (Black), a naïve gentleman from the Midwest becomes friends with a local slacker named KG (Kyle Gass). Together, they form the rock band Tenacious D and determine that they will become the world's greatest rock band ever. In order to make their dream come alive, they set out to steal a magical guitar pick that is kept safe in a rock-and-roll museum that is around 300 miles away. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
