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.
