Rob Reiner’s cult satire about a fictional heavy metal group named “Spinal Tap” spoofs nearly every facet of rock-‘n’-roll excess. “This Is Spinal Tap” shines a light on the self-contained universe of a metal band struggling to get back on the charts, including everything from its complicated history of ups and downs, gold albums, name changes and undersold concert dates, along with the full host of promoters, hangers-on and historians, sessions, release events and those special behind-the-scenes moments that keep it all real.
“”This Is Spinal Tap,” one of the funniest movies ever made, is about a lot of things, but one of them is the way the real story is not in the questions or in the answers, but at the edge of the frame. There are two stories told in the film: the story of what the rock band Spinal Tap thinks, hopes, believes or fears is happening, and the story of what is actually happening. The reason we feel such affection for its members is because they are so touching in their innocence and optimism. Intoxicated by the sheer fun of being rock stars, they perform long after their sell-by date, to smaller and smaller audiences, for less and less money, still seeking the roar of the crowd.”
– Roger Ebert
