** Dewey's improvised song about math ends with him calling nine "[[SchoolhouseRock a magic number]]." And ''Music/TheBeatles'' had a [[Music/TheWhiteAlbum pretty famous]] "number nine," if not a magical one.

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:Dewey for impersonating Ned, even though the cops were called on him and Ned politely tells him to move out before the battle f the bands. The kids still come to rock in the after-school program, which allows him to fulfill his dreams while helping them out even though they lost the Battle of the Bands. This is justified in that Ned doesn't press charges against Dewey and leaves Patty.]]

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dewey.

to:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Dewey. He's BrilliantButLazy, has been mooching off Ned for years and has no desire to get a real job. He also impersonates Ned just to he can avoid getting knocked out, which comes back to bite him later. He's also still a good friend to Ned by promising to pay him the money he owes him and urges him to dump Patty (for Ned's sake as well as his own), brings out the musical talent in the kids he teaches, tries to sort out some of their self-esteem issues and apologises to the kids later that he used them for his own means.


Added DiffLines:

** Ned eventually has enough of Patty berating him one time too many when he decides he wants to go to the Battle of the Bands to see Dewey perform. While she's in mid-sentence, he simply rolls his eyes and storms out, slamming the door on her.

A television series based on the film is set to premiere on Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} later in 2015, despite the original film not being very kid-friendly. There is also a Broadway musical adaptation going into previews in the fall of 2015.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalSexuality: Tomika's parents were her biological mother and father in the movie, but are a gay couple in the show (although, presumably, either​ could be her biological parent).
* AdultsAreUseless: The "Listen" song features several of the kids trying to communicate with their parents, who are too wrapped up with other matters to notice.

Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Dewey is a talented guitarist and dreams of being a rock star, but has no other job and no desire to get one, mooching off Ned for years, according to himself. It's only when Patty threatens to kick him out that he decides to do something about it and pay Ned the money he owes him, even if only for Ned's sake.


Added DiffLines:

* NobodyPoops: Averted. Dewey is in the men's room standing at a urinal when he hears the kids playing their instruments in music class.

** Dewey reiterates that one great rock show can change the world. [[spoiler:The kids' show ends up changing their parents' mind, and Ms. Mullins while furious with Dewey tells him SoProudOfYou.]]



* InsultBackfire: Frankie says "Ms. Mullins, you're TheMan" and she replies "Thank you, Frankie" without knowing what they really mean.
** Frankie's snickering regardless of Ms. Mullins' response indicates that this was meant to be a StealthInsult.

mean. Frankie's snickering regardless of Ms. Mullins' response indicates that this was meant to be a StealthInsult.



** The parents have a right to be concerned when they find out that [[spoiler:a random stranger was posing as a substitute teacher and using their kids as musicians in a concert]], even though their mass berating of Ms. Mullins causes her to have a minor breakdown.

* PapaWolf: After seeing [[spoiler:their kids perform a killer song at the Battle of the Bands]], Lawrence and Zack's dads lead the chant, [[spoiler:"SCHOOL OF ROCK, SCHOOL OF ROCK!" when No Vacancy wins the prize and the twenty thousand dollar check]].



* SaveOurStudents: Played with. The kids didn't really ''need'' saving, but a fair few of them come out happier than they ever were.

* SaveOurStudents: Played with. The kids didn't really ''need'' saving, but a fair few of them come out happier than they ever were. Lawrence, Freddie and Zack agree that [[spoiler:even though "Mr. S" lied to them and used them for a rock show, their three weeks of "vacation" weren't a waste of time.]]



* SeriousBusiness: Dewey: "One great rock show can change the world."

to:

* SecondPlaceIsForWinners: Sure, Dewey's old band [[spoiler:wins the 20,000 dollar check and first prize, but the kids's parents and Ms. Mullins are blown away by their performance, ensuring that they will continue to rock together, and the audience asks them to come out for an encore song.]]
* SeriousBusiness: Dewey: "One great rock show can change the world."" Freddie even names the trope later on in the climax.



* StepfordSmiler: Ms. Mullins is an arguable inversion as she is forced to act like a strict authority figure when inside she longs to be able to have fun and be funny. She still fits the basic trope, though, as she puts on a face of being together and happy in her job when deep down, she's suffering.

to:

* WhenSheSmiles: Both Zack and Freddie after they realize they can play rock music have gigantic, awed grins on their faces.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: In "You're in the Band," Dewey convinces a nervous Lawrence that he can play the keyboard. Lawrence protests that he can't because he only has classical training, but Dewey has him try out a riff, which he sails through with ease.

* StealthInsult: Dewie telling Ned that he'll "throw [him] and [his] dog a bone" while gesturing to Patty at first sounds like a {{pun}} until you remember that "dog" is also an extremely rude term for an ugly woman.
