  1. Louis Léonard's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

  2. Viginti_tres's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

    Eleven doesn't seem that high in this post-Dewey Cox/Popstar world, but the original still manages to wring out some laughs despite the familiarity that comes with being constantly quoted, literally and inspirationally.

  3. kiptok's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

    rewatched. slighter than i remember. i'm very convinced now that hard laughs can only ever come from contemporary comedies and culture changes faster all the time

  4. HKFanatic's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

    Not the best mockumentary that Christopher Guest has appeared in, but it certainly deserves points for being the first. "This is Spinal Tap" proves a fitting satire, equal parts tribute and send-up, of Eighties rock excess, all the more impressive considering this kind of hair metal was still en vogue at the time. The scene in which Guest complains about the catering is one of the funniest moments in cinema history.

  11. Siaudebert's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

  12. Ethan's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

    Quite possibly the greatest film about rock 'n' roll and it is making fun of it. This film goes all the way up to eleven on the comedy scale.

  13. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film This Is Spinal Tap

    Doesn't seem to matter how many times I see this, it never loses its capacity to delight and make me laugh out loud. The secret ingredient, I think, is the genuine affection that each of these amazing actors has for their created characters. There's a wonderful benevolence that runs through the entire piece alongside the beautifully realised tropes. It rocks.

    I did not find this film super hilarious, but some lyrics and butts in tights were fun. Especially the bun song! That character with big black mustache was very funny and sexy!!
