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 his class into a rock band.
During the Battle of the Bands scene, four stacks of Marshall amplifiers are positioned behind the kids on stage. Three of them are modern models, easily rented for a film shoot. However, the Marshall behind Tamika is a much older, "plexi" version, which is rare, and hard to come by. People generally covet these vintages, not rent them.
No you're not hardcore! Unless you live hardcore! And the legend of the rent was way hardcore!
The title of the movie is "School of Rock". The only time it is referred to as "The School of Rock" is a neon sign at the very beginning. The directors commentary addresses the titling error and specifically states that the title is "School of Rock."
The "School Of Rock" band jams throughout the closing credits.
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.
