🎸 Black is perfectly cast in this very funny yarn about a rock musician who impersonates his roomie to get a teaching job, and forms a band in school.

This is a favorite from my childhood. I haven't watched it since then. I saw it at the library and decided to re-watch for nostalgia. It was amazing! Still as good as ever.

This is one of my favorite movies from childhood. If you like Jack Black and classic rock, that's all you need to know to be confident that you'll like this.

Excellent rock movie. The progression of the metal band "No Vacancy" from heavy to lame is also quite well-done. Jack Black is stellar and hilarious.

I recently say the Broadway show and had never seen the movie. This was fun and funny, my family enjoyed it.

For better or worse just saw musical before rewatching this (should have gone in other order). Some things better (i.e. timeline makes more sense, no romantic story with principal); funny miranda cosgrove was little! did not like some of the casting choices i.e. silverman as patty.

I was disappointed Miranda had to play a band manager.

Dewey Finn: I pledge allegiance... to the band... of Mr. Schneebly... and will not fight him... for creative control... and will defer to him on all issues related to the musical direction of the band.

Dewey Finn: OK, here's the deal. I have a hangover. Who knows what that means?
Frankie: Doesn't that mean you're drunk?
Dewey Finn: No. It means I was drunk yesterday.
Freddy: It means you're an alcoholic.
Dewey Finn: Wrong.
Freddy: You wouldn't come to work with a hangover unless you were an alcoholic. Dude, you got a disease!
Dewey Finn: Hmmm... hmmm... What's your name?
Freddy: Freddy Jones.
Dewey Finn: OK, Freddy Jones, shut up!

Dewey Finn: ...And Therefore E=MC2, oh, Miss Mullins, come in
Miss Mullins: I'm sorry, to interrupt but Miss. Lemmons said she heard music coming from the classroom.
Dewey Finn: Music? Uh, music. I haven't heard any music. Uh oh, you know what, Miss Lemmons must be on crack, right kids?
Miss Mullins: Uh, well, what's that?
