Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny

Director: Liam Lynch
Year Released: 2006
Rating: 0.5

Fictitious depiction of the formation of the Kyle Gass-Jack Black musical collaboration "Tenacious D," a project the two of them have always thought was funnier than anyone else thought it was. I'm positive I laughed roughly once during this strained, unnecessary "comedy" although I can't recall exactly when - I'm thinking it was the dressing up of Dave Grohl as Satan (although the fact that I can't recall the precise moment just twelve hours after seeing this is a bad sign in itself). Black's mock exuberance and blustering, blood-pressure raising hysterics barely make a dent; Lynch's most notable work to date is still the coy three minute song "United States of Whatever."
