School Of Rock

The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Saturday, go!, 7pm, PG (2003)

Jack Black’s in­spired and en­er­getic per­for­mance, a ra­zor-sharp script from Mike White and the as­tute di­recti on of Richard Linklater (Be­fore Sunrise, A Scan­ner Darkly) en­sures this is a win­ner. As a rock-ob­sessed slacker, Black drums up plenty of laughs as he as­sumes the iden­tity of his teacher room­mate and de­cides to shape a class of pri­vate school kids into rock gods. Funny with­out be­ing gross, sweet with­out re­sort­ing to sen­ti­men­tal­ity, this will strike a chord with the whole fam­ily, and the AC/DC-led clos­ing cred­its se­quence is fan­tas­tic.
