Jack Black (King Kong, School of Rock) and Mos Def (The Italian Job) star in this new comedy from the wild imagination of Academy Award-winner Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) about two best friends, one electromagnetic field, and every movie you’ve ever loved.
When Jerry (Black) becomes magnetized while trying to sabotage the power plant that he believes is melting his brain, he accidentally erases all the tapes in the old-fashioned video store where his best friend Mike (Mos Def) works. To keep the few customers happy, Jerry and Mike decide to remake one of the erased movies in Jerry’s junkyard. To their astonishment, their unique version of the movie is a hit. Mike, Jerry, and soon, friends from the neighborhood are in full-time production, re-making movies, from Ghostbusters to King Kong, and in the end revitalize not only the business but the entire community.
