|Andrew Lloyd Webber|
Now Lloyd Webber says he has the rights to the 2003 Richard Linklater film "The School of Rock" and that he's going to turn it into a musical
It's a dumb and mean-spirited slacker comedy - albeit a very popular one - about a substitute teacher who, instead of teaching kids, turns them into rock band so he can make money off them. (And nobody else in the school notices that he has a rock band rehearsing in his classroom every day.) It's hard to see how Lloyd Webber's pompous and unoriginal music will be able to improve it. Besides, the possibilities for flashy special effects, which have saved many lackluster Webber musicals over the years, seem slim.
