Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Young Kids From Fame
School Of Rock makes little effort to be anything other than exactly what it is - a fun, thoroughly undemanding movie.

Jack Black plays Dewey Finn, a failed rock player cum schoolteacher, who sets-out to, during school hours, secretly transform his class of kids into a prize-winning rock’n’roll band.

There are few surprises along the way, but a ton of rock in-jokes and a charm that renders the well-trodden story okay.

Best of all, a couple of Hollywood clichés get casually turned on their head, even if the final scene does show a crowd of mindlessly zealous parents getting calmed down by the miracle of rock’n’roll.
