School of Rock

Question: When the kids have to pick up Dewey to go to Battle of the Bands, how did they know where he lives?

Answer: It is never said but If I was to guess, they got it from the guy he was pretending to be (Ned's) information from the school office.

Question: Perhaps a weird question but why did Patty call the cops when she found out Dewey was posing as Ned? Wasn't that ridiculous since it didn't really seem like too much of a crime - as Dewey said to Patty "it's not like I murdered anybody"?

Answer: It's fraud at the end of the day. And in doing so he has put the kids at risk, and possibly ruined Ned's reputation.

Question: I have not seen this film but have heard that at one point Jack Black sings the Bruce Dickinson song 'Tears Of The Dragon'. Is this true? There is nothing on the IMDb.

Answer: The song isn't on the soundtrack, and I can't find anywhere in the film where Jack sings lyrics that even sound like Tears. I don't think it's true.

Question: When Roz says people think she's a bitch, we can't hear the word bitch. Was the word intentionally mouthed by her or was it muted by the movie's editor? From her body language, facial expression and lip movement, it looks like she actually said it, and possibly yelled it. But why would they want to mute it when it's rated PG-13 and there are worse words said in the movie? And why would they mute it instead of doing something that makes more sense like cutting out or changing the word? And why would Roz refrain from swearing when it's just her and Dewey in the car?

Answer: It wasn't muted. Roz is simply unable to say the word out loud when it refers to herself.

Chosen answer: Bonzo goes to Bitburg - The Ramones.

Question: What's the song playing when Dewey and the band are going to the battle of the bands? It's in the bit when Mullins says that all the children are missing.

Answer: Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song.

The Immigrant Song is played when the band is returning from the auditions not when they are going to the Battle of the Bands.

Question: Does anybody know what state this movie takes place in?

Answer: The director states in the commentary that supposedly "this is a nice private school in Long Island."

Question: What is the song that is starting to play when Dewey Finn (Black) is assigning all the kids positions?

Answer: The song playing is "Back in Black" by AC/DC.

Question: In the scene where Dewey is demonstrating the guitar to Zack, what is the first bit of music he plays, just before "Smoke on the Water"?

Answer: He's playing "Ironman" by Black Sabbath.

Question: I know this is a weird question but does anyone know how to play sticks? It is said on the DVD that the kids taught it to Jack Black and that it is a finger game but that is all we are told.

Answer: Sticks is a game where 2 players hold up both hands, and point one finger out of both hands. One player starts, and hits the opposing player's finger. The hand that the one player just hit then has two fingers. The 2nd player then does the same, either using the hand with 2 fingers, or just one. Once both hands get all five fingers up, they lose. But if one hand has 2 or a nother even-number amount of fingers up, they can split the 2 or 4 up, making 1 or 2 fingers on each hand.

Question: What kind of school is Horace Green Prep School? What kinds of student go there?

Answer: Also, the students tend to come from wealthy (privileged) backgrounds - sons and daughters of the elite - because tuition is usually quite high or beyond the means of "average" families.

Answer: A college preparatory school (prep school) prepares middle and high school-level students for higher education through a more rigorous academic program. Students intending careers in law, medicine, science, engineering, etc. are often steered into these types of schools.

Question: Does the movie take place during autumn?

Answer: It's been a while since I've seen the movie but I seem to recall scenes with the air being cold. Since it's light pretty late I would guess September time.
