Jack Black and Mos Def star in Be Kind Rewind, a one-of-a-kind comedy from the mind of writer/director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Black plays a loveable loser stuck in a life that's too small for his big dreams. But when he unintentionally erases all the tapes in a video store where his best friend works, he devises a plan to satisfy the store's few loyal customers by re-creating and re-filming every movie they decide to rent.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Slighter and less disciplined than Gondry's previous mind-benders.

Common Sense Says
Quirky Jack Black comedy is sweet and silly.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the stars of this comedy -- Jack Black and Mos Def -- are both extremely popular with teens and even tweens. Happily, the movie is age-appropriate for both groups (particularly teens). There's some language (including "s--t"), but not as much as in most PG-13 films, and virtually no sexual activity, save for a few "on camera" kisses while the characters re-shoot movies. There's also one discussion about "getting action." The main product tie-ins are West Coast Video and the re-filmed movies themselves.
