In Venice Beach, naive Midwesterner JB bonds with local slacker KG and they form the rock band Tenacious D.

Until this film, Meat Loaf had not sang in a movie since The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) because he wanted to be accepted in the industry as a serious actor. He even thought that his appearance in "The Pick of Destiny" would "ruin" him, but he took the role of JB's father any way. See more »

When I first heard that Jack Black and Kyle Gass would make a movie about their band I was freaking out! I love their music and I hoped that this movie would be really funny! Now that I have watched it I can't really say that these hopes weren't satisfied but I think I expected more. The movie is full of Tenacious D's great music and I really loved listening to all of it. There are a lot of great jokes and I just love the story, at least the first bit. I don't like the way the movie ends. The ending is very abrupt and in my opinion they could have extended that a bit more.
Overall I think it is a good movie to watch! Everyone who likes rock music should watch it! It'll give you a good laugh!
