“Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny”
Run time: 1:33
I’m going to go ahead and get this reference out of the way – “Destiny” is this generation’s “Tommy”….only because I can’t think of any other musicals right off hand except for South Park the Movie.
Written over the course of 6 years by stars Jack Black and Kyle Gass, this movie has the marks of stoner movie all over it. I like The D. I think they’re funny, but this movie is going to gross more on DVD than it will at the box office. What started out as a tongue in cheek satanic acoustic duo on HBO has spawned 2 albums, put Jack Black on the map and gave his the chance to do movies, and proved Kyle Gass is a guitar genius.
I thought it was funny and I appreciated the humor in the music. I thought the casting of The D’s child counterparts was dead on hilarious, but you have to be a fan of The D to enjoy “The Pick”.
