Plot Summary

After being kicked out of his rock band, guitarist Dewey Finn faces a mountain of debts and depression. He shares an apartment with an old band member, Ned Schneebly, who is now a substitute teacher. Dewey accepts a job as a substitute teacher at a snobbish private elementary school where his attitude and hijinx have a powerful result on his students. He learns they are talented young musicians, and he decides to form a rock band with them to win the $10,000 prize money in a local band contest. Once Dewey wins a competition called "Battle of the Bands", the prize money would solve his financial problems and put him back in the rock music spotlight. Written by Steve Shedloski

Trivia All the kids really play their instruments, and the backup singers are real vocalists. Jack Black also played a bit of guitar in the movie (for example, when he is teaching "Smoke on the Water," "Iron Man," and other songs to Zach), but he didn't do the guitar solos. See more »
Goofs When they are playing Zack's song for the first time. The drummer "Fred" and Baseplayer "Katie" have scene costumes but in the next clip they are back in their school uniforms. See more »
