Pretty cool comedy concept, executed reasonably well.
Interesting watch all the way through, with laughs and poignant moments. The Community spirit is well evoked.
The array of supporting characters are very good, Jack Black is funny for a change. Mos Def is average.
Enjoyable, Quirky, Off-Beat, and Feel Good Comedy-Drama

 Pretty good

This movie is underrated. If you like sweet, funny comedies with heart then I recommend you give this one a try. It's not "laugh-out-loud" funny but it really doesn't need to be. Movies like Juno and Little Miss Sunshine were great in their own way and so is this.
So if you liked the two movies I mentioned earlier then you'll enjoy this aswell :)

 In a word-: 'bland'

I was really looking forward to this film, unfortunately after watching it my over whelming feeling could be summed up as 'was that it?'.
Jack Black can be a bit of a 'Hit or Miss' star, sometimes great sometime just a guy pulling faces, this was the latter with neither Black nor Mos Def seeming able to carry the film. The script seemed to go nowhere, the charactures unengaging and the movie paradies, while providing an occasional chuckle were generally less entertaining than the childrens panto version of Spiderman in the 'Snowpatrol' video.

Technically, the transfer of the film to hi-def is well handled, but a crystal clear unengaging movie is still, an unengaging movie.

 Worst I have ever seen

If I could I would have given this 0 stars. It's the only film in a long time that we have stopped watching part way through.
There is some good jokes in the film but it quickly becomes the same jokes running through and the film could be cut down to 30minutes.
This maybe one to watch if your having trouble getting to sleep.

 I love Jack Black but....

This is by far his worst movie (and I've seen Nacho Libre!)
A couple of funny bits when they remake the movies (especially the Ghostbusters effort), but on the whole it's pretty dire.
The story is cheesy, the script is lame & the jokes are so few & far between it makes for quite a gruelling watch.
