MOVIE:  Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny

NUTSHELL:  The origins of the greatest band in the world, (plus Sasquatch and a magical guitar pick.)

GOOD THINGS:  Tenacious D, Amy Poehler, Dave Grohl, Troy Gentile as a mini J.B. again, Jason Reed as Lee

BAD THINGS:  Ill-advised A Clockwork Orange references, not enough songs, Venice Beach, Sasquatch and car chase sequences seem to have been cut down, no resolution of a couple story points at the end but that is so not the point of this movie.

FEATURES:  Meatloaf as maxi J.B., Ronnie James Dio, Fred Armisen, “In Search Of”, power slides, Wake and Bake pizza

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  Some very unappealing wigs and very very obtrustive camos that derail entire sequences.

NOTABLE:  Contains a positively Beverly Hills Cop worthy car chase.

BEST PART:  Rock operaish opening is so awesome.

BEST LINE:  What do you want, non-rocker?!

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
