Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Clearly intended to be viewed through a haze of marijuana smoke, it'd be against the law for us to recommend this film."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"Begins with flatulence, ends with flatulence and is one big gaseous emission in between."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Yup, it's Jack Black -- with an "R" ... really."
‑ Jane Boursaw, Common Sense Media
"Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny is diverting and fun and a great treat for fans, but it's as forgettable as Chinese dinner at the nursing home."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"I enjoyed it, though as a casual fan who also dug the Tenacious D album and DVD, I don't know how it'll play for newcomers."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"[The Pick of Destiny] tries to make up in enthusiasm what it lacks in creative inspiration."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Strictly for the tenaciously devoted."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
""Tenacious D" is a movie for fans of the hilarious spoof-rocking duo. You know who you are."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Little more than a set of sketches strung along a plotline that is gossamer light."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"While the flick has a few funny moments likely to make the general public laugh, at heart it's a Tenacious D tribute layered with asides and inside jokes scripted with the group's diehard fans in mind."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"I found it mildly amusing. I didn't hate it."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Even considering Black's prodigious talents, Pick gets tiresome way too quickly."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Long may they continue to walk in Ronnie James Dio's short but comforting shadow."
‑ Richard Luck, Film4
"May just win over the rockers of old and new..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Apart from the cameos, the movie limps along from one satiric rock song to another, with only the music to carry it."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
