About the Movie

JB (Jack Black - "King Kong," "The School of Rock") is a naïve Midwesterner whose strict Christian parents view his burning passion for heavy metal as a mortal sin. After his dad tears down every poster in his bedroom except for a Ronnie James Dio poster on the back of the door, the former Black Sabbath frontman instructs the aspiring young rocker to seek out his fortune no matter what the cost. Subsequently setting his sights on Hollywood and hell-bent to take the world of rock music by storm, JB sneaks out his bedroom window and makes his way to Venice Beach, where he soon meets guitar-strumming slacker KG (Kyle Gass - "Elf"). The rock duo now named Tenacious D set out on a quest to achieve musical immortality by stealing the mythical guitar pick said to instill its owner with unprecedented musical prowess.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Black thrives in these grubby environs. His full-throttle bodily chaos makes more sense in movies done on the cheap than in blockbusters and polished comedies. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Dec 30, 2006

Fresh: Even if you're not a stoned adolescent, there's plenty to appreciate in Liam Lynch's loopy, cheerfully lowbrow comedy. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Even considering Black's prodigious talents, Pick gets tiresome way too quickly. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Once again, we have a movie that packs about 20 minutes of entertainment -- much of it involving the band's occasionally funny lyrics -- into a 90-minute package. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Tenacious D In : The Pick of Destiny - Movie or Masterpeice?

I have watched this movie time and time again, and it never gets old. The jokes are fresh and original, the music is tremendous (although, they do get a little sweaty, but that's a small price to pay), and the acting is first class. Jack Black shines as he plays... well... Jack Black (JB). Jack Black is Jables, but perhaps a little smarter than portrayed in this movie. Kyle Gass is... Kyle Gass (KG). Kyle Gass is KG, in so many ways, but I would like to think Kyle is MORE talented. This movie is by far the most kick-a*s, rockin' masterpiece since "Beethoven's Seventh Symphony", or Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven". If you do not buy this film, you are banished from the land. LONG LIVE THE D!

#1 Movie of All Time

This is the best and greatest movie in the world.
