And it features stars Jack Black and Mos Def wrapped in tin foil. Considering this is a Gondry film I'm not surprised in the least. Grinning like an idiot, yes. Surprised, no.

Jack Black stars in this new comedy from the wild imagination of Academy Award winner Michel Gondry about two best friends, one electromagnetic field, and every movie you've ever loved.

When Jerry becomes accidentally magnetized while trying to sabotage the power plant he believes is melting his brain, the magnetic field he gives off ends up erasing all of the tapes in the video store where his best friend Mike works. Now Mike may lose his job, and the only way the friends can think to save it is to keep the one regular customer they have - a little old lady with a tenuous grasp on reality - from recognizing what has happened. The way they do this? By recreating and refilming every movie that she decides to rent of course! From Driving Miss Daisy to Ghostbusters to Rush Hour, these two friends become the biggest stars in their neighbourhood by starring in the biggest movies in the world.

That is the greatest movie synopsis ever...

If this wasnt from Michel Gondry and didn't have Jack Black, I'd be interested. As it is, it seems like a movie that some of Adam Sandler's buddies would make, and it would be o and perfectly serviceable. But I kinda expect something more interesting from Gondry and i fucking HATE silly/goody Jack Black.

Thank you, Todd. Thank you oh so very much. Jack Black AND Mos Def? Thank you so much. This sounds like lots of fun.

i can't wait for this! and i don't understand how anyone could think this would work better as an adam sandler vehicle. and i'm also a little unclear about the term 'silly/goody.'

The script...or treatment for that matter (it's like 70 pages l;ong with illustrations) isn't half bad. It's not mind-bendingly great by any means but there are definite flourishes of visual ingenuity that is patently Gondry. The reimagined films in particular should be great and the movie's got a quaintness to it that hearkens back to a time past. And as for Jack Black, you'll be happy to hear he plays second fiddle to Mos Def who is the lead.
