Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (2006)

Somehow, this isn't the funniest thing ever. I'm kinda disappointed by that, but I'll deal, as this is still amusing in a lowbrow slacker-com kind of way. (In that, it trumps Run Ronnie Run!, the film spawned from the show that led to the D.) Jokes about weed and rock abound, and though the film never quite tops its opening sequence (a rowdy rock opera starring Meat Loaf and Ronnie James Dio), it scores often enough to engage. Jokes referring to previous points in the life of the D are either cute in-references for fans or lazy writing, depending on the context, and whatever Tim Robbins thought he was doing is... um... not working. But then, there's also JB's 'mindblowing' vocals and Dave Grohl as Satan and "Use the cock!" So yeah. I liked it, whadaya want.

Grade: B
