Jack Black is one of the best, most charming creative forces in entertainment. Seriously, there’s seemingly nothing he can’t do.
He’s a very talented musician and musical performer, as seen in his work with Tenacious D and in films like School of Rock. He even created a viral hit with “Peaches” as Bowser from The Super Mario Bros. Movie. He can also do drama, as seen in 2005’s King Kong. He can even be an adorable leading man, like in 2006’s The Holiday, which is a far superior holiday rom-com compared to Love, Actually. (Yes, we said!)
However, to celebrate the actor’s birthday today (August 28), we can’t help be take a look at music movies. In addition to School of Rock, Black is known for his hilarious comedic work in another music movie. (We won’t name it here, but we’ll see if you can guess it now before scrolling through our list.)
From major hits to lesser-known titles, here are 12 music movies everyone should watch.
