    Ummm. It doesn't really seem the same. There are so many movies out there today that we can say are "plagiarized" The idea has to come from somewhere…and that clip from 8 years ago was a clip…not a movie. Besides..will it really be that funny/great anyway. Let the man have a project.

  14. The Vix says – reply to this


    14

    who cares, nothing is original anyway anymore and I'm sure the various corps are aware of it.
    The Jack Black film will still be good I am sure.

  15. Texas Grl says – reply to this

    Yep knew this….anyone with kids who watched Amanda Show would know this one.

  16. kage and jables says – reply to this


    16

    Who gives a shit? Jack Black is the shit no matter what. I don't care if he stole a whole fucking movie and made it again. He would just make it better. He is a funny motherfucker. The Amanda show skit is not the premise to this movie anyway, it is meant to be a farce not a real remake.

    that sucks.

    i'm still going to go see it anyways. that and pineapple express

  47. who cares says – reply to this


    47

    Everything has been so stanking boring since the writer's strike, and there is absolutely nothing new going on in the entertainment world. We've seen Superman and Spiderman remade a thousand times, next it's gonna be Batman or whatever has the joker in it–American Idol is getting WAYYYY old and lame and they're using record label rejects….. songs all seem to be plagiarized (Avril L), then you have Barrack Obama stealing speeches….I'm bored. Will somebody please do something that hasn't been done already—something that is actually exciting?!?!! Quick, Perez, dye your hair rainbow or something!!!

    why is jack black so sexy in this picture?

  49. JL says – reply to this


    49

    OH MY GOD!! I completely remember that skit from when I was younger!

  50. John says – reply to this


    50

    I highly doubt that the director and the producers of the movie watch The Amanda Show on Nick and stole and idea presented in 1 episode of the show! Very unlikely and a little ludicrous.

    54

    Scandal? I think not. If every movie was being called a "sacnadal" for having similarities, then what WOULD be good to watch? Lame!

  55. Mellie says – reply to this


    55

    I don't know Perez, I think "plagiarized" might be a little strong. Maybe "inspired." This kind of similarity happens often. I am too tired to think of an example to back up my claim however. By the way, I loved your VH1 Show. You not only have a gift for blogging but a natural ability as an interviewer and host. I have some odd crush on you!

  56. No Proof says – reply to this


    56

    There is no proof that they copied this. it is possible for different people to come up with the same idea. the concept is not too unique. I took an intellectual property class and it is not rare for someone else to come up with the same idea. Show me proof that this writer ever saw this show then we can talk of plagiarism.

  57. Lindzy Rules! says – reply to this


    57

    true, the idea was plagiarized, but jack black is better than amanda bynes… MUCH BETTER!!!!!

  58. Geminat.com says – reply to this

    I knew it! I heard that story before

  59. WHATEVER says – reply to this


    59

    i saw this movie about a month ago at an early screening & it SUCKS anyway!!! one of the most boring movies i've seen in a while… if you are not familiar with 80's & 90's american flicks, you probably won't laugh at all!

  60. jennifer says – reply to this


    60

    yeah, the idea is similar, but it's not plagiarized.

    Re: first bitches – your not first idiot

  62. Stephanie says – reply to this


    62

    i'm sorry, this is such bullshit…michel gondry is a brilliant director who allows dreams to become reality. first, Be Kind Rewind is far different than that Amanda Show segment and second, what does it matter? I'm a Perez fan but this negative post about a positive movie makes me think twice. you should be encouraging creativity in the industry, not chastising it.

  63. poopoo says – reply to this


    63

    saw be kind, rewind last night and it sucked. the amanda show version is 10 times "better… much better!" : )

  64. megan says – reply to this


    64

    they're nothing alike at all. the Amanda show sketch is about immigrants who dont understand the concept of a video rental store and make their own bad versions of movies, which all their customers hate. In be kind rewind they accidentally erase all of the videos and have to recreate the movies, and the people who rent them actually really like the recreations and they become really popular. The amanda show sketch and the movie are really completely different. The only similar aspect is the whole "making your own version of a movie" thing, the stories are totaly different.

    65

    No bid deal. Probably just a coinky dink :)

  66. kahiki says – reply to this


    66

    oh gosh. it's not "plagiarism". look at majority of the movies on the scene now…they are all exact plot replicas but do you call THAT plagiarism? i don't think so. get over it. the movie is just for fun so shut up and enjoy it.

  67. Steph says – reply to this


    67

    It's nothing new to plagiarise a storyline from a preexisting show/film. There was an Australian film called 'Strange Bedfellows' which was totally copied in the film 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry'. Both had two straight men pretending to be gay and kept them as being firefighters!

  68. SO IS JUNO says – reply to this


    68

    JUNO WAS PLAGERIZED TOO.. & I'M SURE IT'S BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL FILM IS KOREAN. IT'S THE SAME FUCKIN MOVIE, SAME TOPIC & ENDING.. IT'S CALLED "JENNY JUNO"… NO CREDIT GIVEN WHATSOEVER!!!!!

  69. john says – reply to this


    69

    do you really think anyone involved in this movie have heard of the amanda show? her videos sucked ass anyway

  70. jess says – reply to this


    70

    uhh Be Kind Rewind is directed by Michel Gondry - you cant get any better of a director for a film!

    plus this story is also tied to a sweet old lady - taken from Yahoo movies -
    "Jerry, a junkyard worker, attempts to sabotage a power plant that he believes is melting his brain. But when his plan goes awry, the magnetic field that he creates accidentally erases all of the videotapes in a local video store where his best friend Mike works. Fearing that the mishap will cost Mike his job, the two friends team up to keep the store's only loyal customer - a little old lady with a tenuous grasp on reality - from realizing what has happened by recreating and re-filming every movie that she decides to rent. From "Back to the Future," to "Robocop," to "Rush Hour," to "The Lion King," Jerry and Mike become the biggest stars in their neighborhood by starring in the biggest movies ever made. "

    71

    That's not plagiarism. It doesn't even violate copyright laws. You can't protect an idea…only the way it is expressed. I think they're both completely different expressions of similar, and extremely generic, concepts.

  72. smack says – reply to this


    72

    perez i love you but you need to learn the definition of "plagiarized"… cause this movie may be similar to The Amanda Show.. but it's sooo much more different.. this drama you're causing over nothing is embarrassing..

  73. Adrianna says – reply to this

    Who cares about Nacho Libre, Barack won 10/10 states this month alone! Wooo, BA-RACK THE VOTE PEOPLE! It's time for a REAL change, ready or not.. here we come!

    This movie is not plagiarized! I can see if it was EXACTLY the same but it isnt. Anyone will sue anybody for anything

  77. tara says – reply to this


    77

    perez i can't believe you would post some bs like this up on your site? try and spread rumours that 1. ppl care about 2. might actually have some truth to it.

    you can't plagiarize an idea. because that is all that is similar, the concept of redoing videos and renting them out.

    and to all the other idiots. jack black didn't write the f-ing thing, and neither did amanda bynes. they are just actors.

  78. annie says – reply to this


    78

    mos def's movie too.

  79. Amanda Bynes says – reply to this


    79

    That's not really plagiarism… similar concept… but different enough. One YouTube video is not a scandal. Or shocking. And it's not word for word like Barack.

    Maybe it's cool that Jack Black "borrows" from Nickelodeon, too. He is pretty tight with them.

  80. HawnHulaGirl says – reply to this


    80

    saying he plagiarized the amanda show is like saying you plagiarized Paris Hilton's name. I don't see it.

  81. Aimée says – reply to this


    81

    That's really sad, I hope it's not true! Does anyone have any pictures of Jack Black's private parts? Who where like men who dress as babies? Anyone? You know, diapers and stuff. Let me know! :D

  82. Kathleen says – reply to this


    82

    Who even cares? The clip from The Amanda Show is a 2 minute segment. Maybe it sparked the idea for it, or maybe they came up with the idea on their own. Who hasn't watched a movie and thought they could make it better? I just don't think this is an issue.

    92

    It's not plagiarism, look it up Perez. I'm sure the production studio's lawyers aren't totally useless and made sure ideas weren't stolen. What the Amanda show did was create parodies of popular movies and so did Jack's film. Mos def this is legal, and the fact that the movie did the same thing as the Amanda show ISN'T plagiarism.

    He's no Avril. Thats a whole different story.

  93. lj says – reply to this


    93

    They say that there are only 7 plots, period. Did you check the credits? I don't think Jack Black wrote this or directed it , so why worry or put his name on it. Mos Def is in the movie too.

    The premise is the same, so what???
    It's not like the movie is the same as the Amanda Show word for word as say…oh, I don't know, an Obama speech?
