Critics Reviews

The Onion (A.V. Club)
The visual wit, game performances, and overflowing humanity have more than made up for the shortcomings by the time the film finds a final moment that's simultaneously abrupt and magical.

The New York Times
In its sweet, lackadaisical way, Michel Gondry’s Be Kind Rewind illuminates the pleasures and paradoxes of movie love.

Odd, very odd, and yet somehow, in someway, it struck a chord with me. Be Kind Rewind has a ton of heart, and you can tell that the team that worked on it not only had fun working, but had a genuine love of movies. And it's very funny; the gags...

While there are few real laugh-out-loud moments, "Be Kind Rewind" manages an offbeat charm. Even Jack Black seems to have toned down his usual brash persona here. It's as much about the invention of history as it is the invention of movies (Sweded...

Wow was this movie disappointing. It did not live up to even my lowest expectations. Both of the main characters have shown in other films to have what it takes, but both of them fall short of their potential. Great concept, perfect cast to pull it...

I never thought I'd say this, but this movie would have been a lot better if someone other than Jack Black played the lead role. The story had great potential, but his characteristic zaniness was too distracting. I agree with others that the...

YOU WILL EITHER BUT INTO THE PREMISE OF THIS INSANE FILM AND ENJOY IT OR YOU WILL TURN IT OFF WITHIN 15 Min. I liked this wacked out heartwarming comedy set in Passiac N.J. from the director/writer of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Im being...

Be Kind Rewind is a good Michel Gondry film. It takes steps to be more appealing to people than his previous works. It still strikes a weird chord at times - I can't figure out why though. Melonie Diaz is such a cutie pie in it, you'll wish she had...

Looked really funny on paper and just REALLY wasn't. I'm almost too indifferent to write this review, but obviously not ;)

It may have been the sour mood I was in when watching, but I hated this film. The characters and situations are such total contrivances that they bear no relation to life on planet earth. "Be Kind Rewind" is so painfully silly and sentimentalized...
