Synopsis

A lovable loser is stuck in a life that’s too small for his big dreams. But when he unintentionally erases all the tapes in a video store where his best friend works, he devises a plan to satisfy the store’s few loyal customers by re-creating and refilming every movie they decide to rent.

Critics reviews

…It’s very moving as an idea or an ideal, though the lack of any sense of autonomous life in Be Kind Rewind, save in service to that ideal, killed the movie’s attempt at contemporary Capra for me. (Melonie Diaz is good in a supporting bit, though—she should be in more things.)
