Netflix pulls the plug on a Jack Black film just weeks after it debuted in the top ten.
Despite having recently topped Netflix’s Top 10, one of Jack Black’s most beloved comedies is being removed from the service.

“It’s a bunch of guys-just-wanting-to-be-guys nonsense.”
‘Man, to get a chick, all you have to do is follow my five simple rules.’
‘Gimme that beer.’ Boring frat-guy nonsense.” But School of Rock, written by his roommate and friend Mike White, was a perfect fit.
“This film is definitely made for me,” Black said.
“It’s as if Mike White is a tailor who took measurements…
