Sophie (It’s An S Pod Thing!) and Barbara (Over/underated: a music podcast with Babs and Fran) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Sophie’s choice School of Rock.

School of Rock is a 2003 comedy directed by Richard Linklater and starring Jack Black as Dewey Finn, a failing rock musician who pretends to be his best friend Ned filling in as a substitute teacher and consequently uses his pupils to enter a Battle of the Bands competition. It also co-stars Joan Cusack as the uptight Principal ”Roz” Mullins, Sarah Silverman as Ned’s nagging girlfriend and Mike White (who wrote the film) as Ned Schneebly, Dewy’s best friend and the real Mr Schneebly.

Not a musical but there is a stage musical adaptation it was the highest-grossing music-themed comedy of all time until 2015. If High Fidelity was Black’s breakout film, School of Rock put him firmly into the mainstream and it is very much his film and still his most known and loved character.


School of Rock scored very highly for recommendability and repeat viewing from Sophie and Babs but slightly lower scores for engagement gives an overall rating of a very respectable 4.08.
