Jack Black's screen persona can salvage even a very weak script (although even he could not breathe life into KING KONG). TENACIOUS D and the PICK OF DESTINY is perhaps one of the dumbest movies ever made, and even a first-time screenwriter should have been able to do a clean-up draft to make this film 1000% better, but nonetheless it is still watchable and has a few laugh-out-loud moments. The songs are surprisingly weak. Another day and a rhyming dictionary would have helped significantly. But if you're a rock fan, you'll get enough laffs to make it worth the rental.
