75% Movie Review: Tenacious D - Pick of Destiny

The movie begins with some foreshadowing. We are titillated by an animated fart sequence, clearly an allegorical reference to Gass, specifically Kyle Gass, who could be the evil twin of David Crosby if he had more hair and more hits.

In the first scene, we watch JB (Jack Black) rebel against a strict upbringing. JB's dad (Meatloaf), displays some clear admiration for Neidermeyer's performance in that Twisted Sister video. Subsequently, JB takes the long way to Hollywood, meeting up with his future band mate, the aforementioned Kyle Gass. Crazy hijinks abound while the two search for the tooth of satan in the form of a guitar pick.

I keep waiting for the Mystery Machine to pull up.

During the daring heist of the Rock n Roll History Museum, I learn two important lessons:
  1. First, picking all the dried cranberries out of Tom's special trailmix requires focused concentration.
  2. Second, focused concentration on alternative activities hinders movie reviews because you lose track of what's happening onscreen.
Tenacious D: Pick of Destiny: 1 hour 10 minutes (of 1 hour 40 minutes) reviewed.
