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.
As Dewey heads into the Battle of The Bands contest towards the end of the film he walks through a corridor and past two musicians wearing shades, leaning against a wall. The two are members the band who provide extra instrumentation on the soundtrack.
Hey guys, guess what? I've just been informed that your children have all gone missing so...
At the concert, the shadow of the camera falls on the amplifier in a close-up of Alex.
The first few opening credits are on a guy's jacket and various posters in a rock club.
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.
