Once the movie starts finding its focus it becomes a very unique experience

July 17, 2008
A surprisingly quiet and whimsical comedy about a ridiculous and unlikely series of events that turns into a nearly-as-likely miracle. Best bit: the film's own Sweded preview.

An ode to finding one's creative side and the joys of being able to share one's creations with others.

Tackles the hackneyed with the tender hand and heart of writer/director Michel Gondry.

But with a skill that is difficult to pinpoint, Gondry seems to stumble like a fox from this paper-thin plot into a precious little ode to community.

Director Michel Gondry delivers the first great film of 2008.

It's central message is that filmmakers are wonderful people, which is pretty much what you would expect filmmakers to say.

The process of Sweding soon becomes a community project, another glance back and ahead at the same time.

Ultimately trades in schmaltz of the unearned kind.

The remake/parody sequences are outstanding, but Black's all-over-the-place mania and Mos Def's bland orphan hero don't quite tie the rest of the picture together. Still, it has heart.

The community-produced version of Fats Waller's story leads to a block film party in what may be the most touching ending of Gondry's films.
Brandon Fibbs

Be Kind Rewind may be the least ambitious of Gondry's films but is also his most fun.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

It falls short in the character development category, relying on a whimsical vibe, the charm of its actors, and ceaselessly inventive movie re-creations to get by.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
February 27, 2008
Gondry has merely used the plot to celebrate community, friendship, love, creativity, making something out of nothing and the power of myth to sometimes be greater than truth.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
February 24, 2008
One of the most bizarre concepts to hit the big screen unspools erratically in "Be Kind Rewind," an outrageous comedy that offers some clever scenes and more than a few laughs.
