”##### “Put it up to eleven””

British heavy metal band Spinal Tap have had their ups and downs. A succession of their drummers have died, they’ve received terrible reviews and offended millions. But they’ve also had enough success to afford extravagant rock star lifestyles. This Is Spinal Tap follows the bands reunion tour, skewering the ridiculousness of heavy metal in particular, and the excesses of 80s rock star living in general. This is Spinal Tap is a classic comedy and cult film that holds up incredibly well. It employs a mockumentary style that is ubiquitous in today’s comedies (The Office, Parks and Rec), and is something of a precursor to Christopher Guest’s Waiting For Guffman and Best in Show. Genuinely must-see comedy material.

★★★★★ “Few films, if any, can match Spinal Tap for consistent laughs. Every scene is a classic” — Empire
