Most scenes involving the playing of guitar are unsynced. The most noticeable is the "Beezleboss (Final Showdown)" scene when Kage starts playing the audio has changes in the guitar chords, but KG's hands aren't moving at all. See more »

I am a HUGE Tenacious D fan, and I think this is not the funniest movie in the world, but the most entertaining. It's not laugh-a-minute but that's not what the D intended it to be. I went into the movie seeing all the HBO shows, memorized both albums, and that made it even more enjoyable. Plenty of inside jokes from past Tenacious D albums, and HBO shows. Since I knew the new album already, I knew 40 minutes of the movie because it is a musical comedy. I would say it has the best first 5 minutes of any movie and the best last 5 minutes of any movie. Hands Down.
See This Movie Now!
