Many people seem to have trashed this movie because it wasn't like 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind'. With Be Kind Rewind, he is very enjoyable, and gives one of his better performances. That is to say, there is clearly a joy of filmaking associated with Gondry that will have me continue to look forward to his work. Rewinding them and forwarding them?

There are some other issues being dealt with in the film though, and that's both positive and negative.
Jack Black gets manic, but his performance here is closer to High Fidelity than his usual shtick. Of course, a little Sigourney Weaver cameo doesn't hurt either.

Def, despite being somewhat unintelligible at times, is also pretty good, and I really like seeing him work as an actor, even though his music career is his real strength. Without any money to renovate the building, Mr. Be Kind Rewind is a good comedy with plenty of good performances, a great story, and plenty of humor to make it a film that can exceed your expectations. The Be Kind Rewind channel also encourages filmmakers to create sweded versions of popular movies.

What a great concept and how great a story we got from Gondry this time. Fletcher cautions Mike to keep his and klutzy friend, Jerry , away from the store. Please by the claims made and adding. It's unique and it's moving. And while I have some reservations about the film, my recommendation for the film is based on Gondry's filmaking vision.

Just watch all the sweded 'refilming' of, for example, 'Driving Miss Daisy' with Danny Glover and Mia Farrow, 'Ghostbusters' and 'Rush Hour 2' with Jack Black and Mos Def.
