Be Kind Rewind 
Unusually Touching
3/4 stars

Even though far from perfect in most respects, I’ve come to profusely adore this film. Not only is it funny because of the two leads (Jack Black and Mos Def), it’s a tribute to motion pictures, all the characters are likeable in their own way, and there’s a great message about the power of films which is directly related to the bond among communities. There’s an undeniable imagination that drives the picture which is then reflected in the home movies, which turn out to be pretty interesting, laugh-out-loud funny, or both. Nevertheless, I think that the writing could have been much sharper which could then have elevated the movie in a whole new level. For instance, I wanted to know more about Black and Def’s lives outside of the video rental place. How are their relationships with other people when things are not exactly light and fluffy? Those types of unanswered questions hindered this film a little bit. As for the critics saying that it was a wrong move referencing to “bad movies” like “Rush Hour 2,” I thought it was perfectly okay. For me, a movie is a movie regardless of its quality. I was surprised with the last twenty minutes of the film because it was really touching, especially the silent moments. Right then, I knew that “Be Kind Rewind” is not just a typical comedy of errors. It has many underlying messages that are worth looking at. In a nutshell, I strongly believe that the imperfections of this picture made it that much more brilliant. It’s not afraid to be silly because it has intelligence behind all of its ideas.
