Two metal obsessed losers move to Hollywood and plan find fame and fortune by stealing a guitar pick fashioned from one of Satan’s teeth.
Tenacious D In: The Pick Of Destiny is Jack Black doing Jack Black. Again. If you’ve seen School Of Rock, High Fidelity or anything else he’s ever been in you know exactly what you’re going to get and I for one think his one note routine is getting a little old. The Pick Of Destiny does have its moments but it’s never more than mildly amusing and this metal inspired stoner material has already been covered by Spinal Tap, both Bill And Ted’s movies, Wayne’s World and even The Blues Brothers. And they all did it better.
Those who never before realised that the word “rock” rhymes with “cock” may find it hilarious but anyone over the age of 15 will be left largely unimpressed.
