PG-13 | | Comedy, Family, Music
After being kicked out of a rock band, Dewey Finn becomes a substitute teacher of a strict elementary private school, only to try and turn it into a rock band.
All the kids really play their instruments, and the backup singers are real vocalists. Jack Black also played a bit of guitar in the movie (for example, when he is teaching "Smoke on the water", "Iron man" and other songs to Zach), but he didn't do the guitar... ...
What is that?
Dewey Finn: It's an encore. They want us to go play another song! It's good! Go, you guys!
Dewey Finn: Wait, no, no, just the band! Okay. Everybody, go!
When Dewey speaks to the battle of the band director, in one shot Summer is looking towards the director, in the next she is looking towards the band (just prior to Dewey throwing the chair).
The first few opening credits are on a guy's jacket and various posters in a rock club.
