A hell-raising guitarist with delusions of grandeur gets kicked out his band and desperate for work, impersonates a subsitute teacher who turns a class of primary school kids into high-voltage rock-and-rollers.
Brilliant vehicle for Jack Black to do what he does best - make us laugh! Far less 'Disney' orientated as many thought it would be School of Rock manages to tread that fine line between just providing family entertainment and throwing in some adult asides too. Well worth it - if just for one line right near the end!

Richard Linklater's film about a teacher (?) inspiring his pupils. To Dewey Finn (Jack Black) music is his life and that includes playing lead guitar in a bar band, who manage to get gigs here and there and aim to win a regional battle-of-the-bands competition. The only thing standing in their way is the self-indulgent antics of their lead guitarist. Finn is ousted from the band but he badly needs to pay the rent so finds himself in front of a class of elite school students after impersonating his supply-teaching roommate, Ned Schneelby (Mike White, who also wrote the script). Going against the school's remit he is soon teaching his class all he knows about rock (Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Who etc); the idea being that he enters them for the competition. Meanwhile, he has to keep the Principal (Joan Cusack) from finding out what he is up to - as well as all the other teachers... and the kids' parents...
