When School of Rock came out I went and saw it three times. I loved that movie. Hell, I still love that movie. But I remember a few of my more movie snob friends were ashamed that director Richard Linklater would sink to doing a movie that an entire family could enjoy and began bashing the guy unmercilessly, which is what people who have no talent to actually make movies of their own tend to do.
And, as usual, I ignored them and enjoyed a group of genuinely talented youngters who could play instruments much better than I or, really, most musicians out there (yeah, I’m talking to you EVERY TEEN IDOL).
So it’s nice to see, that on the ten-year anniversary of the flick, that Linklater and the rest of the cast got together to talk about the film and then reunite on stage at an after-party to perform together.
And yeah, I still get goosebumps when I hear the song.
