Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny Reviews

Annlee Ellingson
Boxoffice Magazine

Five years since Tenacious D's eponymous debut album went platinum, the mock rock band has perhaps missed the zeitgeist in which to successfully release a biopic on the origins of the self-proclaimed Greatest Band on Earth.

They were going for Crossroads. They settled for VH-1 Storytellers.

My advice: set aside the money you would have spent on a ticket toward buying the soundtrack. That way, you can get all that's moderately good about Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny without having to endure the substantial bad.

A script as saggy as the duo's bare tushes.

Even with Jack Black's eyebrows and a musical showdown with the devil, Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny is kind of a whiff.

Gass and Black should have been given a few more chances to go completely bonkers.

Only the most diehard D fans will forgive the flaws in this erratic comedy that probably won't stand-up to multiple viewings.

The duo strains at their comedy the same way they strain at their music.

The premise might have worked as a half-hour sitcom but stretching the material out to fill the length of a feature film was not a wise idea.

Begins with flatulence, ends with flatulence and is one big gaseous emission in between.

Little more than a set of sketches strung along a plotline that is gossamer light.

Clearly intended to be viewed through a haze of marijuana smoke, it'd be against the law for us to recommend this film.

School of Rock got high and watched Harold and Kumar, and The Pick of Destiny was the story told to the cops upon waking up in the drive thru.

starts off fine enough as a silly, laugh-filled rock opera, but, eventually, becomes just another stoner comedy running on attitude

For the amount of years it took to bring their cultish misadventures to the big screen, someone must have had a B-side script cause that would have been a letter up.

It feels only half thought through--funny but stretching one joke far beyond the breaking point.

Apart from the cameos, the movie limps along from one satiric rock song to another, with only the music to carry it.

Less rocking on and better jokes would have made Tenacious D seem more than just tenacious.
