Michel Gondry's 'Be Kind, Amanda Bynes'

Michel Gondry is often praised for his unique vision and quirky ideas, but is it possible his newest film, Be Kind Rewind, stole the notion of video store employees remaking films from Nickelodeon's The Amanda Show. Probably not, but this video of the 8-year-old show does show some astounding similarities to Gondry's comedy.

The director will hopefully move past these claims of plagiarism with his next original film, in which a slimy green substance descends on anyone who expresses verbal uncertainty.

Thanks, Richard.
