Trivia

The symbols on the neck of the guitar KG gives JB (from bottom to top) are: a pentagram (point down); a cross; the infinity symbol; a crescent moon and the Star of David (on the same fret); the yin-yang; the equation for Albert Einstein's theory of relativity; a cannabis leaf; and the Eye of Providence (eye inside a triangle). The headstock has a crown inscribed with the word "ROCK." See more »

Goofs

When KG and JB are driving, especially during the chase scene, it is very obvious that the car is on a trailer and being towed and not actually being driven. When the background shows that the car is pulling over to the curb, or turning, the wheel stays straight and does not rotate. See more »

Greatest movie ever made
23 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Probably the best comedy in a long time. keeps you laughing nonstop! the acting is good and there are a lot of hilarious cameos such as Ben stiller as the guitar store guy. The plot wasn't as good as i had hoped but the comedy makes up for that. I can only hope for a sequel cause it seems like they can still do so much more. Even though it was 1 hour and 40 minutes long i still wanted more at the end :) also there is a scene after the credits which is actually one of my favorite parts of the movie!! I suggest this to anyone who loves a good comedy and Definitely suggest it to fans of The D or Jack Black. You should buy the album also, the songs are so damn catchy and hilarious, the music on it is Top Notch as well.
