YMMV / Be Kind Rewind

  • Designated Villain: The copyright lawyers seem to think this is what they are. They're not.
  • Funny Moments: Pretty much all of the "special effects" of the sweded tapes. Ghostbusters in particular.
    • "When you're walking down the street, and you see a little ghost, whatcha going do about, GHOSTBUSTAAAS!"
    • When Jerry tries to play Fats.
  • Genius Bonus: In making their final film, the characters steal a train. Since it's a diesel, they (very poorly) dress it up as a steam locomotive. The diesel is an ALCO RS-3. Of the 3 biggest builders of diesels (the other 2 being GM-EMD and GE) ALCO was the only one to have built steam locomotives.
  • Heartwarming Moments: See the bittersweet ending entry.
  • Memetic Mutation: Homemade scene-for-scene recreations have been around for some time. But this is the movie that coined the term "sweding/sweded," inspired and encouraged homemade remakes, either of movies or their trailers.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Sigourney Weaver as the copyright lawyer.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: The first Sweded film, and the one that gets the most screentime, is Ghostbusters. Then Sigourney Weaver shows up, and absolutely nothing is done with this.
