Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny is an origins tale, a love story, an excuse to see John C. Reilly dressed up like Sasquatch. To win an open-mike night and pay their rent, the wannabe Golden Gods break into a museum to steal a guitar pick forged from the tooth of Satan (Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, in seven and a half hours’ worth of makeup). EXTRAS The deleted scenes, making-of, and twin commentaries rock, but the recording-studio featurette (which shows JB and KG using a rhyming dictionary to find matches for rock and c—) rules. B+
