Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny

Overall D

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.

Why is Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny rated R? Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny is rated R by the MPAA for pervasive language, sexual content and drug use.

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.
