Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.
In Venice Beach, naive Midwesterner JB bonds with local slacker KG and they form the rock band Tenacious D. Setting out to become the world's greatest band is no easy feat, so they set out to steal what could be the answer to their prayers -- a magical guitar pick housed in a rock-and-roll museum some 300 miles away.

When Bob rolls down the stairs and hits Arthur Gantner's car, the bandage can be seen. There is no bandage on his head from the view inside the car. In the next shot, the bandage is back again. See more »

I feel that I should explain 2 things before I give my opinion of this movie 1) I don't expect much from a MTV production and 2) I went to see this movie just to see Colin Hanks, because of his role as Alex Whitman in Roswell.
I was surprised and impressed with Colin Hanks, and Schuyler Fisk who I had not seen in anything. Both of whom played characters that actually had some depth. They actually wanted to go to college not just get laid or marry someone rich.
I found the movie light and funny, full of great cameos
If you are expecting to see a lot of Jack Black you may be disappointed. He only has a supporting role. But hilariously funny as usual.
I also wish that they had kept Colin's hair off of his face, like in some of the beach scenes. The whole bangs thing just, just . I just didn't like it.
Worth the rental fee for the cameos, Jack Black, some off color jokes and some of the lines the supporting actors have.
DVD has some great deleted scenes and explains why some of the ads showed things that were not in the movie.
