Entertainment Weekly - 10/03/2003
"...Witty and touching....Joan Cusack is pinpoint funny..."
Rolling Stone - 10/30/2003
"...Hail! Hail! Jack Black: He's the clown king of rock & roll....Enroll in his class and you won't stop laughing..."
New York Times - 10/03/2003
"...A very funny for-kids-of-all-ages delight that should catapult Mr. Black straight to the top of the A-list of Hollywood funnymen..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/03/2003
"...ROCK takes a clever premise and Black's unflagging manic energy and comes up with a pleasing mainstream comedy..."
Variety - 09/15/2003
"...The whole show is basically Black's....He really can riff and shriek like every bedroom Led Zep fantasist dreams of doing..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/03/2003
"Jack Black is a living, breathing, sweating advertisement for the transformative power of rock 'n' roll..."
Wall Street Journal - 11/27/2009

Product Description:

SCHOOL OF ROCK is a hilarious romp that parents will enjoy as much as their children. Jack Black stars as Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star who doesn't seem to be rocking much of anything these days. Kicked out of the band that he started and about to be kicked out of his apartment, Dewey pretends that he's his roommate Ned Schneebly (Mike White) in order to take a job as a substitute teacher. Arriving at an ultra conservative--and ultra expensive--prep school, Dewey manages to fool the uptight principal (Joan Cusack). Soon, he finds himself in a classroom with a bunch of fifth graders. Obviously, Dewey has no intentions of teaching these kids anything, but when he discovers that a handful of them are talented musicians, a light bulb goes off. Determined to enter the local battle of the bands and win $25,000, Dewey embarks on his greatest mission of all: Teaching these kids how to rock!

Director Richard Linklater (DAZED AND CONFUSED, WAKING LIFE) delivers his most universally appealing film with SCHOOL OF ROCK. Written specifically for Black by screenwriter/actor White, this outrageously entertaining crowd-pleaser elevates Black to superstar status.

Product Description:

Jack Black stars as a hell-raising guitarist with delusions of grandeur. Kicked out of his band and desperate for work, he impersonates a substitute teacher and turns a class of fifth grade high-achievers into high-voltage rock and rollers. Joan Cusack portrays the principal of the private school where Black is prepping the kids for a Battle of the Bands.
