About Jack

( wikipedia | imdb | dmoz )

Jack Black is said to have been born on Thursday 28 August 1969, which would make him 48 years and 28 days old (if this date is accurate and he is alive today).

Orange County DVDOrange County
      2002 | USA | Laughs: 6.5 (Watch Once) | imdb: 6.2
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

When his college counselor sends in the wrong transcript, the straight-A class president of a preppy Orange County high school gets turned down by Stanford University. As he tries to reclaim what is rightfully his, it seems to him that neither his drama-loving mom nor his authoritarian dad, surfer buddies, sweet girlfriend and stoner brother really want him to get in. For a movie involving high-school characters, this one is refereshingly low on vulgarity but features a cute story and good laughs. (Last viewed: March 2012)

School of Rock posterSchool of Rock
      2003 | USA | Laughs: 5.0 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 7.1
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A destitute musician impersonates his roommate to get hired as a school teacher at a prep school, where he undertakes to instruct his class in Rock'n Roll.

The premise reminded me of Fck You Goethe (which this movie predates by ten years). Although there were no hard laughs, the movie was consistently funny, thanks both to the kids and to Jack Black, who saved no energy putting on this impressive performance. A fun watch. (Last viewed: November 2016)

Envy posterEnvy
      2004 | USA | Laughs: 5.0 (Watch Once) | imdb: 4.8
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

As a man becomes astoundingly wealthy thanks to an invention that initially sounded hare-brained, his best friend has a hard time coping with his mounting jealousy. This theme will be familiar to many who scratched their heads in astonishment as they watched acquaintances attain sudden fortune during the dot-com boom years — which ended four years before the movie's release. Despite its poor ratings, I found it funny and enjoyed the performances by Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Amy Poehler. (Last viewed: October 2014)

Shallow Hal posterShallow Hal
      2001 | USA | Laughs: 2.0 (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 5.9
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A man who only judges women on their looks is hypnotized into seeing their inner beauty, and starts dating a large woman whom he believes to have a model-like figure. This was a sweet movie, and it could be recommended as a Sunday night rom-com to watch with your honey. I didn't laugh, but it certainly wasn't torture as I like Jack Black and Jason Alexander (George from Seinfeld). (Last viewed: June 2017)

All the tapes at a struggling video rental store get erased. To limit the damage, the staff start shooting their own versions of blockbuster movies and meet unexpected success. This was sweet and well-intentionned but fairly boring. (Last viewed: July 2017)

      1996 | USA | Laughs: 1.3 (Just Awful) | imdb: 6.1
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

A lonely cable guy (Jim Carrey) decides he wants to become one of his customers' best friends. Starts out silly (with some good laughs), ends up psycho. I wanted to watch a comedy, mama, not a stalker movie! Only watch if you're ready to zap. (Last viewed: June 2010)

Three birding enthusiasts compete to be the one who will spot the most bird species in a calendar year. The commitment to the competition takes a toll on their professional and family lives.

Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson made a balanced triangle, and the story-line was unusual. While this is certainly not a laugh-out-loud comedy (the rare bird that this site aims to spot) this was a very cute movie that made me smile a lot. (Last viewed: November 2016)
