Jables and Kage were living their lives when nuclear war breaks out. After surviving the onslaught by hiding in a 1950s refrigerator, they now must wander the post apocalyptic world in this Tenacious D extravaganza.
To become the greatest band of all time, two slacker, wannabe-rockers set out on a quest to steal a legendary guitar pick that gives its holders incredible guitar skills, from a maximum security Rock and Roll museum.
A reporter's dream of becoming a news anchor is compromised after a one-night stand leaves her stranded in downtown L.A. without a phone, car, ID or money - and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life.
All his life, Dan Landsman (Jack Black) has never been the cool guy. That's about to change - if he can convince Oliver Lawless (Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who's now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion. A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to LA and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless. But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life. Showcasing Jack Black and James Marsden's most outrageous performances to date, THE D TRAIN serves up the question: how far would you go to be popular? Co-starring Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor.Written by

Dan Landsman (Jack Black) is a self-important sad man. He's married to Stacey (Kathryn Hahn) with teen son Zach. His boss is computer-adverse Bill Shurmur (Jeffrey Tambor). He has lived a limited life. He's the unliked lead organizer of his 20th year high school reunion. One night, he catches a TV commercial with popular former classmate Oliver Lawless (James Marsden). He insists that Oliver was a friend. He goes out to LA to invite Oliver to the reunion which culminates in a drunken sexual awakening.
This is a dark comedy which left me cold. Dan is annoying, pathetic, and unfunny. His dilemma and his obsession is just as annoying, just as pathetic, and just as unfunny. This could have gone darker to go crazy with this premise but it doesn't. At the end of the day, I never cared about these characters and the movie doesn't make me care about them. It ends rather flatly. Sometimes, Jack Black takes on this other side of the coin. I wait for him to truly hit it out of the park with this persona.
