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

  • The Pick of Destiny ain't going to win any awards, and the girls don't get much of a look-in, but it will strike a few power chords with a certain generation that is too old to disco and too young to die.

  • For fans, a crowd-surf over Tenacious D's best bits. For the unbaptised, a novelty movie of a novelty band, big on spirit but in search of a script.

  • [The Pick of Destiny] tries to make up in enthusiasm what it lacks in creative inspiration.

    November 27, 2006 | Rating: B-
  • I found it mildly amusing. I didn't hate it.

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

Audience Reviews for Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny

  • Jul 04, 2012
    Since I am a Tenacious D fan, I would give it high marks. However, I will try to be as unbiased as possible. The film does feature lots of 'laugh out loud' moments, however, most of the jokes are sex related. The use of cameos was a highlight for this film, examples being Tim Robbins and Ben Stiller. Ultimately, the best feature of this film is the soundtrack, songs like 'Master Exploder' and 'Beelzeboss' are superb for any Tenacious D fans. This film is essential for D fans. Its worth a try for metal music lovers. However, if you don't fit in these catagories, its should be given at least a chance.

    First i'll admit i'm a fan of the band Tenacious D and expected the same humour used in their songs. I got that. What more does a fan of one of the most awesomest rock bands ever need than their comedy and rockin tunes extended to the length of a movie? Nothing. The unfaithful however will find it boring and/or disgusting, but you do get Jack Black at his most un restrained. It isn't This is Spinal Tap but it's what it wants to be. A movie created for fans of Tenacious D.

    Along with Metalocalypse, quintessential stuff to watch for any rocker.

    Downright hilarious. The music is great and the storyline, while unbelievable, carries the movie for its entire length.
