Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hail! Hail! Jack Black: He's the clown king of rock & roll.
Fresh: A clever and sometimes a beautiful thing.
Fresh: School of Rock made me laugh harder than any movie I've seen this year.
Fresh: It would be a shame if only kids went to see this film. Adults who can still plug in to their inner rocker, if only to play air guitar, will love it, too.
Amazing Actor, Amazing Movie
Black's naturally insane methods are what make this movie a winner, and has really good chemistry with pretty much anybody he works/acts/rocks with. Despite the fact that I'm giving this five stars, I believe there is an exact copy of this movie on iTunes for half the price, so go check it out. I honestly have no idea why there is one for $10 and one for $5; I bought the $5 one and it turned out fine, so I don't know what the deal is with that.
Sort of Pricey
Great movie, but it is pretty old and is priced a litlle high
TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!!!
i bought it on my ipod for a long car ride and ended up just watching it all the time!!! i have watched it a million times and it is still entertainning!!!!! If you were to get tired of the movie...... you can always just wait for the musical parts and listen to those!!!!!
