      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Tenacious D fans will find this movie hilarious; everybody else will see only a low-brow concept movie and a small assembly of jokes stretched past the 100-minute mark.

      David Jenkins Time Out Clearly intended to be viewed through a haze of marijuana smoke, it'd be against the law for us to recommend this film. Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Paul Arendt BBC.com 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. Rated: 3/5 Nov 30, 2006 Full Review Simon Crook Empire Magazine 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. Rated: 3/5 Nov 29, 2006 Full Review Kaleem Aftab The List It's a fun ride in the puerile style of Kevin Smith, but for non-fans of Black or the D, this will grate like a tone-deaf musician. Rated: 2/5 Nov 3, 2018 Full Review Dorothy Woodend The Tyee (British Columbia) If you put your brain in park, it's all vaguely amusing, in a silly fashion, much like a Ramones song, three chords of dumb fun that blows away like so much dry-ice smoke. Aug 23, 2017 Full Review Jane Boursaw Common Sense Media Yup, it's Jack Black -- with an "R" ... really. Rated: 3/5 Jan 1, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Before it's time. It needs a re release at the cinema. I was far to young the 1st time around Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/16/24 Full Review Shawn I Love this band and this movie!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Jo C The greatest movie in the world. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review hannah f The Pick of Destiny, a modern day Blues Brothers. Brilliantly written comedy that has become a cult classic over the years. Way before its time, and taught me to understand good music and humour. Although not the point of the movie, I related to the music and humour so much, I decided to peruse a career in the music and performing arts industry. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Matty L It's a gut busting, mind altering, thirst quenching, nipple prickling, ear tickling, masterpiece of a film! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review EwanDoggie B This movie is so good, I watched it 3 times in a week. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
