Be Kind Rewind


bekindrewindWhen Jerry (Jack Black) becomes magnetized in an accident, every tape in his buddyā€™s (Mos Def) video store is destroyed; the solution could be to offer customers amateur versions of famous movies.Ā Versatile director Michel Gondry delivers a kooky comedy that is decidedly Jack Black-ish. Results are uneven, but pretty funny and itā€™s interesting to see that one of the themes is the copyright battle between studios and audiences, making the film topical. I also like the attempt to convey a sense of community. However, there are times when the film gets too unruly.

2008-U.S. 101 min. Color. Written and directed byĀ Michel Gondry. Cast: Jack Black (Jerry), Mos Def (Mike), Danny Glover (Elroy Fletcher), Mia Farrow, Melonie Diaz, Irv Gooch… Sigourney Weaver.Ā
