Tenacious D in: The Pick of Destiny - 2

This film is like if Disney tried to remake This is Spinal Tap. This film uses a cliche and corny storyline to tell the story of the fictional formation of a real band: Tenacious D. My guess is that Jack Black found a short cut in promoting his band by making a film about them. I realize you have to take this film with a grain of salt, but even that doesn't make this film funny or worth watching. The film is half road trip adventure to steal the magic pick and half "you can overcome your parents discouragement through hard work and rock'n'roll rebellion." Most of the jokes fall flat and the film doesn't work as a satire of...anything.
