Jack Black portrays Dewey Finn, an unemployed rock and roll singer who has been booted from his own band.  Meanwhile Ned (Mike White), his roommate, is preparing to evict Finn unless he finds a job -- pronto. 

When Dewey receives a call from Ned's employer who's seeking a substitute teacher for the week, the rocker happily assumes the latter's identity for some quick cash.  Unfortunately Dewey's scholastic abilities are less than stellar, forcing him to teach his students the one thing he knows how to do best: rock.

The School of Rock won an MTV Movie Award and was nominated for a Golden Globe, a Grammy, and four Teen Choice Awards.  It was a commercial success, garnering nearly five-times its $35 million budget.
