Richard Linklater. Good. Jack Black. Hee hee. A movie about Jack Black playing a fifth grade teacher in a movie directed by Richard Linklater? Awesome.

Official School of Rock site. See the trailer.

Our favorite Richard Linklater movie: Dazed & Confused.

Our favorite Jack Black movie: High Fidelity. (We do feel he's better as a character actor, versus a lead, but may School of Rock prove us wrong.
