School of Rock

School of Rock ★★★★

“It’s a rare blood disease called stick-it-to-the-man-eosis.” ✅

School of Rock is a very feel good movie. It is definitely super predictable but Jack Black brings an infectious energy to this entire movie. He was absolutely incredible and so likable. You want him to succeed and get all the kids to become better as well. This is also my favorite Linklater film. The humor was nicely balanced while also giving great arcs to each character. There is the inevitable moment of failure for our protagonists in films like and it gets handled well. Due to smart writing this is a fun ride to tag along on. Linklater doesn’t make any missteps in my opinion but I could see all the plot points from a mile away. That doesn’t take away from Jack Black and the great child performances as well.
