Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny

In Venice Beach, naive Midwesterner JB (Black) bonds with local slacker KG (Glass) and they form the rock band Tenacious D. Setting out to become the world's greatest band is no easy feat, so they set out to steal what could be the answer to their prayers -- a magical guitar pick housed in a rock-and-roll museum some 300 miles away.(imdb)

I am not going to say I laughed out loud a lot during this movie but I will say I really enjoyed it. This is what Jack black does best. The music was awesome, the plot was interesting, the quality was good, and their journey even better. Surprise superstars Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, John C. Reily and even Meatloaf make appearances. 

Obviously not a movie for everyone...But for those of you who think the JB bird dance is funny then step right up.
