You’ll never be able to watch a rock group seriously again after experiencing this hilarious comedy about a supposed heavy-metal band called Spinal Tap. Once upon a time they had a pretty big hit song. Now, nearly two decades later, Spinal Tap still clings to some glint of their lost glory as they embark on an accident-plagued tour across America. In Cleveland, the group gets lost underneath the stage. In Washington, they’re accidentally booked at an Air Force formal dance. And in a Chicago record store, no one shows up to get their autographs. It’s the “rockumentary” parody that’ll leave you cheering. Directed with great wit and affection by Rob Reiner.
Phoenix on VHS. Starring Ray Liotta, Anthony LaPaglia, Anjelica Huston. With Daniel Baldwin, Jeremy Piven, Royce D. Applegate, Xander Berkeley, Brittany Murphy, Kari Wuhrer, Giancarlo Esposito. Directed by Danny Cannon. 1998.
