Be Kind Rewind

Mr. Fletcher (Danny Glover) runs a VHS video store in dilapidated street corner in Passaic, NJ which is in danger of being demolished. When he goes off on a trip, his trusted side kick, Mike (Mos Def) in charge. But disaster strikes when Mike's friend Jerry (Jack Black) shows up magnetized and ends up erasing all the tapes. In a desperate attempt to satisfy customers Mike and Jerry start to remake films in their own quirky and hilarious fashion.

The film is Michel Gondry's stab at the main stream film industry that is losing out on innovation and artistry to big budgets and technology. I prefer Joss Whedon's stab to this!
