Be Kind Rewind

Title: Be Kind Rewind

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Jack Black, Mos Def, Danny Glover, Mia Farrow, Melonie Diaz

Genre: Comedy

Status: In Theatres

Plot Summary: Jerry (Black) is an odd mechanic whose brain gets magnetized and he accidentally erases all the tapes in the video store his friend, Mike (Def), works in. To please their best customer, the guys re-shoot them all the movies instead of replacing them.

Review: I’m not really a fan of Jack Black’s acting (Tenacious D is amazing though, look it up) but this one was pretty enjoyable. The beginning is just flat-out funny, but towards the end it turns into a really deep story. Jack Black is the hilarious nitwit of the group, and Mos Def is the more grounded one, but he’s still a funny guy and was a nice compliment to the film. The movie started to go towards the touching side a little early in the film, I thought, but I still loved it.

Rating: 4.5/5
