Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Be Kind Rewind...

Worried about government conspiracies, Jerry attempts to sabotage a power plant. During the process, he is electrocuted and becomes magnetized (including his urine). He is also showed throwing up and urinating in the street. Two characters are caught during a break-in and while defacing public property. Brief sexual dialogue, innuendo and crude comments about bodily functions are included in the script, along with infrequent profanities, vulgarities, and scatological slang. An unintentional overdose of an over-the-counter drug, alcohol use and a home remedy to cause vomiting are shown.

Home Video Viewing Alternatives

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Be Kind Rewind.

Worried about invading aliens, two children and their uncle make protective headgear out of aluminum foil to keep their thoughts private in the science fiction film Signs. In another comedic role, Mos Def plays a space traveler trying to make his way across the universe in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The consequences of being magnetic prove just as problematic for a knight in metal armor in The Court Jester.
