A teacher for the ages

Welcome to Dewey Finn’s world. He’s a failing rockstar with an unbounded passion for music. He dives into unenthusiastic crowds only to fall on the floor when no one catches him. His songs just aren’t good enough, but Dewey isn’t a man that gives up on his wild dreams. Unfortunately, when Dewey gets kicked out of his band, he’s got to find a new bunch with whom to play music.

Enter: An awesome soundtrack, some cutting edge deceit, and a bunch of talented 10-year-olds. What happens next is they show the world who’s really boss. In their beloved teacher Mr S or Dewey’s words, they stick it to the man. And, boy oh boy, do they do it with finesse.

It just Rocks man!

The cast, music and writing of this film are as close to perfect as anything gets. You can’t help but rock out to the music, and Owliver guarantees that you will walk out at least 10% cooler than you were before you watched the movie. Jack Black, as the lead in the film, is absolutely rib-tickling. He’s nuts, and he isn’t afraid to show it. What’s more, he doesn’t want you to be afraid to show it either.

This movie is for every kind of person. Are you more of a backbencher? No problem. You’ve got a place in the coolest band in the world? Are you shy, still no problem? Constantly worried about your grades? Uncool? Too cool? Well, no one is too cool or uncool for the Dewey Finn and that’s precisely why this movie has gone down in history as beloved by fun-lovers around the world.

Still don’t believe that this movie is the most awesome, life-changing, side-splitting musical to ever grace the cinematic Universe. Watch the trailer, and we guarantee you’ll be on board. That is, of course, unless you hate fun, in which case you’d best get back to your homework.
