The whole starting and premise of the movie was awesome but the end half of the film was weird, it's like they decided to change genres halfway through from a comedy to a drama. Those Sweded films were hilarious though.
The Michel Gondry picture starring Jack Black and Mos Def as nitwits working at a video store unwilling to join the DVD revolution. When all their tapes get erased by a magnetic field, they start replacing them with homemade versions. It sounds completely stupid, but it's not. By the end, I was most reminded of the Japanese film After Life, about the recently dead making a movie of a moment from their lives before they can move on. It's the same kind of love letter to cinema, and if you have any kind of movie-making aspirations, incredibly inspiring.
Be Kind Rewind is one of my favourites. It's very clever and with great humour, also loved seeing the whole community come together and help make movies. Definitely worth a view if your a fan of comedies.
