Still shot from the movie: Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny.

Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny

Actor Jack Black returns to his not so family-friendly roots as a rocker in Tenacious D--a music group best known for its vulgar and profane lyrics. The movie, The Pick of Destiny, contains equally offensive content as it fabricates an account of Black and his buddy Kyle Gass (who play themselves) going to extreme lengths to become the best band on Earth.

Why Is Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny Rated R?

Parents who discovered Jack Black in films like School of Rock or doing voices in animations such as Ice Age or Shark Tale should note this movie is of a very adult nature. Dozens of sexual expletives, discussions about crude sexual behavior, and a man using his clothed erection to disarm a security alarm are only some of the content issues in this film. Satanic symbols, a depiction of the devil and a deal where he will be given a man as his “sex slave” are also included. Illegal drugs are used and depicted in a comedic way. As well, characters commit crimes of breaking and entering and evading police, which result in a high-speed car chase.
