Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny (26-Oct-2006)

Director: Liam Lynch

Writers: Jack Black; Kyle Gass; Liam Lynch

Keywords: Comedy

A two-man musical act striving to become the world's greatest rock band schemes to steal a magical guitar pick.

ABSTRACT
Starry-eyed, rock music-obsessed Jack Black leaves his backwoods Missouri town for Hollywood on a mission to form the world's greatest rock band, catching on with KG, an acoustic guitar player worshiped like a god by a naive Jack until he inadvertently reveals himself to be an underachieving slacker. Now on equal footing, our unhinged pair embark on a journey to pilfer a magical guitar pick said to imbue its owner with untold powers of rock, performing battle against Satan himself in the process. Largely intended for Tenacious D acolytes, uninitiated viewers will scratch their heads at all the inside jokes.
