We are the D!

Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny.

Jack Black and Kyle Gass (JB and KG for short) are rockers that are trying to become famous by finding the legendary Pick of Destiny.

This film is sort of a “Blues Brothers” of rock. The band is real and perform in concerts, they have albums, and the movie is sort of a mock story of their characters from the band.

The music is amazing and there is a lot of funny stuff going on.

Take note: This is Jack Black from his old school days of Tenacious D, meaning that its not for kids!!!! He is still his goofy self, but has an edge to him and a potty mouth!

In short, I loved it! This was a great mock rock adventure and even though its not as epic as The Blues Brothers, its still approaching cult status (which it already has). I would definitely say get it, if you like this kind of thing.

Lots of cameos, great rock songs and JB and KG are as funny as ever.

I cried laughing at some parts. I will say that the ending song battle could have been a bit better, but all in all this is a great comedy!

  1. Basically, this movie is a more cohesive Hollywood-calibre retelling of the HBO TV series. Since the HBO series spanned across multiple episodes, they were able to be more elaborate with the band's backstory in some parts, but there's a lot of episodic filler. I was really happy that they got most of the minor cast from the series in the movie. Lee, the honorary 3rd member of The D (he was the pizza dude), Dave Grohl as Satan, and the open mic night host made it in...and I think the same guy (John C. Reilly?) that played The Sasquatch....GAWD, I hate The Sasquatch! :)

    Anyway, I'm sure you've seen the series, but just in case, do it!
