The School of Rock (2003)
Music Man without the good stuff
That's how I would sum it up --- possible spoilers -- this is my first posting....
I thought the script still needed some work. What would have made me like this film is if the kids had actually learned something along the way -- for instance, that dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide, if you mix yellow light with cyan light, you get green light, etc. I'm not sure how to tie in subjects besides science but I think it could have be done better than it was portrayed in the film.
Anyway, if the parents had seen that by pursuing rock-and-roll that their kids could actually keep up with their studies, I would have believed they wouldn't be angry. I didn't think the show was so charming that it would have pleased angry parents.
Too much of the film was focused on shallow professor Hal Hill (actually Dewey Finn) but as I say it seemed like a modern-day Music Man -- I thought there should have been more from the kids' perspective.
Score -- 3 out of 10
