Cette nostalgique leçon d'histoire recèle les trésors cachés des plus grandes comédies musicales de la MGM ainsi que de nombreux autres extraits merveilleux mais moins célèbres, avec Esther Williams, Jimmy Durante, Eleanor Powell et même Clark Gable chantant et dansant. « Il était une fois Hollywood » est une véritable gourmandise pour cinéphiles et amateurs de comédies musicales.

As the Earth passes through the tail of a comet, previously inanimate objects (ranging from weapons to electric signs to electronics to vehicles to lawnmowers to an electric knife) start to show a murderous life of their own. In a pre-title scene, a man (King in a cameo) tries to withdraw money from an ATM, but it instead calls him an "asshole", and he whines to his wife (King's real life wife Tabitha). Chaos soon begins as machines of all kinds come to life and begin assaulting humans: a drawbridge inexplicably raises during heavy traffic, resulting in multiple accidents, most notably the black AC/DC van and a watermelon truck; while at a Little League game, a vending machine kills the coach by firing canned soda point-blank into his groin and then to his skull; a driverless steamroller flattens one of the fleeing children.

Popular music of the 1960s was dominated by young bands like The Beach Boys, The Mamas & the Papas, Jan and Dean, and The Monkees. Listening to rock and roll on jukeboxes and car radios created devoted fans of these groups, whose music communicated the optimism and sorrow of a generation contending with strong countercultural forces.

L'histoire se déroule aux États-Unis en 1962. Frank Vallelonga, surnommé "Tony Lip", un videur italo-américain de New York, cherche un emploi après la fermeture de la Copacabana, la boîte de nuit où il travaillait, pour rénovations. Il est invité pour une entrevue par le docteur Don Shirley, un excentrique pianiste noir d'origine jamaïcaine, qui cherche un chauffeur pour une tournée de huit semaines à travers le Midwest et le Sud profond. Don engage Tony grâce à ses références. Ils partent et prévoient de revenir à New York pour le Réveillon de Noël. Le label de Don donne à Tony une copie du Green Book, un guide pour les voyageurs afro-américains indiquant des motels, des restaurants et des stations-service qui autorisent la visite de personnes de couleur.
