School of Rock

Jack Black poses as a substitute teacher and teaches his 10-year-old prep school charges to rock.   At first glance this doesn’t look like a must-see.   But then you notice that it is directed by Linklater, who gave us ‘Waking Life’, one of the most original films, and written by Mike White, who wrote and starred in the alarming ‘Chuck and Buck’.   ‘School of Rock’ is utterly mainstream and very, very funny indeed.   The kids are great, as is Black’s interplay with them.
