To become the greatest band of all time, two slacker, wannabe-rockers set out on a quest to steal a legendary guitar pick that gives its holders incredible guitar skills, from a maximum security Rock and Roll museum.
Two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video rental store. In order to keep the business running, they re-shoot every film in the store with their own camera, with a budget of zero dollars.

Look Shaun, I'm sorry you didn't get into Stanford. But if you think that going here is the only way that you can be the person you want to be, well then I just feel sorry for you.

During the opening credits both the font of the credits and the way they are displayed are similar to that of the output of a typewriter. See more »
I feel that I should explain 2 things before I give my opinion of this movie 1) I don't expect much from a MTV production and 2) I went to see this movie just to see Colin Hanks, because of his role as Alex Whitman in Roswell.
I was surprised and impressed with Colin Hanks, and Schuyler Fisk who I had not seen in anything. Both of whom played characters that actually had some depth. They actually wanted to go to college not just get laid or marry someone rich.
I found the movie light and funny, full of great cameos
If you are expecting to see a lot of Jack Black you may be disappointed. He only has a supporting role. But hilariously funny as usual.
I also wish that they had kept Colin's hair off of his face, like in some of the beach scenes. The whole bangs thing just, just . I just didn't like it.
Worth the rental fee for the cameos, Jack Black, some off color jokes and some of the lines the supporting actors have.
DVD has some great deleted scenes and explains why some of the ads showed things that were not in the movie.
