Be Kind Rewind movie review

After a video store employee accidentally bulk erases the stock, he and his friends set about creating their own replacements.

Which sounds like it might be interesting. However, after 20 minutes of brain-numbing effort your reviewer gave up on this movie. Slow, tiresome, and long in the setup, this movie might improve, but the editor and director did not deserve the effort when they has such disrespect for the audience.

Watch just about anything else.
