This Is Spinal Tap

Humorous with sporadic laughs mockumentary that follows the dying British rock band, Spinal Tap. Rob Reiner, directing his first film, makes this story all seem true since it is pasted together with intentionally tacky shots. It's definitely unique, but it should have been more fun and enjoyable. Fans of 80's rock bands really ought to get a kick out of it, but others probably won't care for it. Watch for all the cameos!
