5.0 out of 5 stars it's a cliche but....11 out of 10, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: This Is Spinal Tap - 25th Anniversary Edition [DVD] (DVD)
Having been involved in the music business for many years I can truly say that, although a comedy "rockumentary", this film isn't all that far from the truth: a bit of hyperbole here and there but otherwise it hits the mark. Saying that even if you've no involvement in music you will find this film absorbing and very very funny.

The film basically revolve around the rock band Spinal Tap, their excesses and there fall from the top as music tastes change within their record company and their management goes from mistake to mistake. All the characters are larger than life but oddly endearing and believable. The scene with the customoised amplifiers is most often cited but there are many more e.g. the pods used to start a concert, the miniature Stonehenge....

Just one more thing, my cousins a drummer, what's his life insurance premium going to be?
