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.


I watched School of Rock way back when it came out, but I have never had a desire to watch it since. However, scrolling through Instagram, as you do, I came across some people talking about it, and I decided to re-watch with new eyes. Thankfully, it was streaming on HBO, so I was able to.

My feelings on School of Rock remain the same. The movie is fine, I don’t find it funny, but it’s kind of cute. Jack Black’s character is mainly a positive influence on the kids, and the ending is the best outcome, but I’m not sure if his actions outweigh the lies he told. I guess I’m not rock n’ roll enough.

It’s a sweet film, and I enjoy Jack Black and the kids, but sadly it’s not a movie for me.
