Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny will bring in fans of Jack Black, Kyle Glass, and their HBO comedy show "Tenacious D." But neither their outrageous rock-'n'-roll antics nor their crass comedy are impressing critics.
David DiCerto (Catholic News Service) says, "The sophomoric semi-rock opera's 'message' about friendship and following one's dreams is overpowered by a cacophony of vulgarity, irreverence and raunchy lyrics."
Marcus Yoars (Plugged In) says, "[T]eens drawn to this particular brand of 'hilarity' will get from it a whole lotta nothin'—and in the process ingest perverse sex gags, profane language and pointless, sometimes violent posturing."
Some mainstream critics are enjoying the tongue-in-cheek humor of the whole thing.
