The Dragon Warrior has to clash against the savage Tai Lung as China's fate hangs in the balance: However, the Dragon Warrior mantle is supposedly mistaken to be bestowed upon an obese panda who is a tyro in martial arts.
Down and out rock star Dewey Finn gets fired from his band, and he faces a mountain of debts and depression. He takes a job as a 4th grade substitute teacher at an uptight private school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful effect on his students. He also meets Zack, a 10-year-old guitar prodigy, who could help Dewey win a "battle of the bands" competition, which would solve his financial problems and put him back in the spotlight. Written by
During the class lectures, Dewey shows a slide-show that features a picture of the Ramones. In the end credits scene, Zack is wearing a Ramones t-shirt, showing how thoroughly he has changed from the beginning. See more »
When the parents of the kids are interrogating Dewey Finn, the police arrive to arrest him, Principle Mullins arrives too and so does his friend Ned Schneebly and his friend's girlfriend Patty Di Marco. They all stand at the door leaving absolutely no space at the entrance of the classroom. In the next scene Finn is seen running away in the corridors of the school from everyone due to a verbal misunderstanding between him and the parents. It is unclear how he was able to escape from the classroom since the entrance was completely blocked by the police, Mullins, De Marco and Schneebly in the previous scene. See more »

What can I say? I'm a rockaholic. I eat, breath, and dream of classic rock and it's glory days. I listen to only rock radios, and every other morning I go on an AC/DC Binge. Rock is pure, and beautiful.
Unfortunately, it's not the only music out there.
Pop culture today sucks, putting it nicely. All that stuff out there is ruining the minds of people of today. For a little while it seems like rock disappeared, hiding underneath everything else, being disregarded by fans today.
Then 'School of Rock' came along.
Dewey Finn (played by Jack Black) is a bum who gets himself kicked out of his own band because of his unruly antics. To top this off, his substitute teacher roommate Ned and Ned's girlfriend Patti begin to nag Dewey for rent money. Dewey can't pay it off. After spending some time trying to sell his personal belongings, a phone call from a prestigious prep school looking for a substitute teacher catches Dewey's attention and he parades around as Ned, hoping to just walk in, let the kids do what they want, get some money, and be gone like nothing every happened.
Until he finds out that the class of fifth graders he has been assigned to teach are musically and vocally talented.
This sparks an idea off in Dewey's mind, thinking that he can turn his group of fifth graders into a rock group so that he can win 25,000 dollars in a contest called 'The Battle of the Bands'.
This is a wonderful, classic - rock fueled movie. Jack Black is hysterical as Dewey Finn. The children are all talented, particularly the ones on instruments and vocals.
If you want to love rock music, go watch this movie.
If not, then you'll have missed out on something great.
