What to know
The D Train offers Jack Black a too-rare opportunity to showcase his range, but its story and characters are too sloppily conceived to hold together as a film. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for The D Train
There may be an interesting idea lurking in here somewhere, but any subversiveness is lost amid cod-indie gurning and comic bum notes.September 20, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
We're not quite in Bobcat Goldthwait country, but we have pulled up into adjacent territory.
The central figure in The D Train (the title refers to the unearned nicknames that he constantly tries to award himself), Dan [as played by Jack Black] is a tragic monster.
Jack Black gives one of his most nuanced and affecting performances in this oddball indie comedy.

May 08, 2015The D Train is an odd movie. It's an interesting one, don't get me wrong, but it's an odd one for sure. I'm a rather faithful comedy fan and have said many times on this site before that I carried a rather rabid affinity for the fan appointed "Frat Pack" that originally consisted of Jack Black, Ben Stiller, Owen and Luke Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell. Any time any of these guys decided to head up a film there was a desperate hope they would include a couple of the others in the proceedings. Soon, Judd Apatow and his gang emerged and the universe has been expanding ever since. In the wake of this merger it always felt like Black was somewhat left behind. This was obviously unfortunate given Black is one of those guys who can make you laugh with a simple facial expression, but his output has become increasingly stale since hitting a high mark in 2008 with Tropic Thunder and Kung-Fu Panda. Looking back through his filmography it is almost alarming how little he has done in the past few years with his last out and out feature being the horribly marketed and little-seen The Big Year in 2011. With The D Train, Black seems to be making something of a statement in that, at the very least, he'd like to see his career go in a more mature way, one that puts him in the position of actually investing in his characters and developing his skills rather than simply cashing the quick check and making the same faces. We've seen this before from the comic, especially in the underrated Bernie, but here it is more of a concentrated effort than the seemingly haphazard way in which Black picked projects prior. read the whole review at www.reviewsfromabed.netPhilip P Super Reviewer
