We gave it a B-

The magnetized Jerry (Jack Black) accidentally erases the entire inventory of Mike’s (Mos Def) video store. Logically, the two friends decide their best option is to re-create films like Ghostbusters and The Lion King for the loyal customers who still want to rent the tapes. Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) directs this whimsical comedy also starring Danny Glover, Mia Farrow, and Melonie Diaz.
