PG-13 | | Comedy, Music
After being kicked out of his rock band, Dewey Finn becomes a substitute teacher of an uptight elementary private school, only to try and turn them into a rock band.
During the course of the film, Black switches the part in his hair from left to right, depending on whether he is being Dewey, or playing Ned.
Female Security Guard:
Sorry. To get in, you've got to be in a band or have a pass.
Miss Mullins: I am principal of the school's band.
Female Security Guard: Oh, right on.
While Zack is playing his newly composed song in the background as Billy and Dewey are discussing the band's outfits, you can hear the chords and notes change, yet Zack's fingering doesn't change for the last part in the shot.
Near the end of the credits, the song includes the lyrics: The movie is over but we're still on screen Everybody's rocking And we came from Horace Green
In the theatrical version of the film, the performance by School of Rock during the end credits is changed. Originally, after several solos, Dewey tells Katie she does not get one, as bassists don't get solos and that's just how it works. This was changed for the DVD and TV versions: Dewey does not tell Katie that bassists don't get solos and she does not assume she gets one anyhow.
