Part music video, part comedy, the story begins with a young JB (Jack Black) belting out the profane lyrics to "Kickapoo," while his ultra-conservative family tries to eat dinner. After a lecture, a beating, and the removal of his prized rock star posters, ten-year-old JB leaves for Hollywood to pursue his dream of becoming a rock singer. After a circuitous route, he finally arrives years later at his destination and meets poser KG (Kyle Gass) playing his guitar for spare change on Venice Beach.
The two hook up to work on The Kyle Gass Project, what KG promises will be the best rock band on earth. In their quest for fame -- which includes a big win at a talent show in a dive bar -- they decide to steal a magical green guitar pick housed in the Rock and Roll History Museum. Along the way, they take lots of mind-altering drugs, watch television, indulge their fantasies, and solicit the help of star-struck Lee (JR Reed), a clingy pizza delivery man with a serviceable car, but no discernible backbone, and must fight off a mysterious stranger (Tim Robbins) who also has plans for The Pick of Destiny.
In addition to Robbins, other notable stars make brief appearances including Ben Stiller (who also served as an executive producer), singer Meat Loaf, and Fred Armisen and Amy Poehler, both of "Saturday Night Live.Read more ›
ALL HAIL THE GREATEST ROCK BAND IN THE WORLD IN THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE!!!!!
Jack Black and Kyle Gass star as some "upcoming" rock musicians that form a band, Tenacious D. They are wondering why certain groups gain rock stardom. They come to the conclusion that it's the same guitar pick. They try to get that guitar pick from a local guitar shop. The clerk, played by Ben Stiller, tells them a story that the guitar pick was fashioned from the tooth of the devil and has special powers. They want this guitar pick, but discover that it's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum and highly guarded. The fun begins when these two "slim" guys try to retrieve the magical pick.
This isn't the best movie technically, or could never be consider a classic. It is, however, one of the craziest, fun movies you've seen in a while. I was totally entertained! If you have a great home theater system, the sound and music are awesome and sound great--like you're there!
This was recommended to me by my Amazon friends Mr. Know It All and Clint Bronson. They haven't let me down and I'm telling you if you want a good time and love hard rock/heavy metal this is DEFINITELY a buy for you. Have fun!
