    In the end, Jack, Kyle and director Liam Lynch ("Sarah Silverman: Jesus is Magic") have created more than just a low-brow comedy, they've created a comedic saga, a film more rock show than movie.

    "The Blues Brothers" it is not, but in its best moments, the movie feels like a comic exaggeration of the real hardships that a couple of average, decidedly unhip guys went through on their unlikely way to the top.
  3. Works just like a Tenacious D song. The movie feels giddy and eruptive, dopily enthralled with itself, and more or less made up on the spot.
  4. Baked and half-baked, Tenacious D does manage to give the term potty humor a new meaning. That's some kind of genius, right?
  5. 50
    Tenacious D is utterly harmless and totally pointless. Black and Gass have been at this so long their dirty little joke has all the punch of a Catskills routine.
  6. As it wobbles from one episode to the next, The Pick of Destiny is a garish mess, and some of it feels padded. But it has enough jokes to keep you smiling, and the spirit Mr. Black brings to it is a fervent (and touching) affection for the music he spoofs but obviously adores.
  7. 40
    Not only screams out to be a midnight movie, but one in need of, shall we say, an herbal supplement, and we aren't talking ginkgo biloba.

    Seriously just a great movie. After I saw the movie, I was a little disappointed, but I went home and I listened to the soundtrack, and I Seriously just a great movie. After I saw the movie, I was a little disappointed, but I went home and I listened to the soundtrack, and I realized the movie was really awesome. It wasn't quite as laugh out loud funny as I'd expected, but it was entertaining and awesome. Any rock fan should see this. Expand

    A lame joke that lasts 90 minutes. Jack Black puts in the same performance he's been doing for 10 years, and at this point it's A lame joke that lasts 90 minutes.
