The School of Rock was totally awesome! The kids apparently were the real thing and played their own instruments. It was very inspiring to see and makes me want to keep learning more guitar. Jack Black, once again the hyped-up, wild-eyed, man-child, was excellent in this role. The movie was really about Jack's quest to win the Battle of the Bands, rather than to go and teach children how to play music or to inspire them. Therefore, when Jack comes tells a kid not to drink, or that being fat is irrelevant to being loved (or adored by fans), it comes off sincerely because he's not out to teach them a lesson--he's just telling them like it is.
