Beyond brilliant ... 11 !!,
This review is from: This Is Spinal Tap [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
If you are around 40 and therefore were a teenager just getting into music at the advent of heavy metal, congratulations !! You have just discovered your HOLY GRAIL !!
This movie is, particularly to us that remember how to play the air guitar, the most hysterical film ever made !
It follows the American "tour" of Britains loudest rock band, a group of such awesome pretentiousness ... well you just have to see it to believe it !
The brilliance of the actors who are Canadian and American is uncanny, surely they are a real English band ?? !!
And the music which they wrote and performed is so good it would have topped the rock charts in 1975 !!
If by some quirk of fate you have never seen "Tap" be prepared to role around the floor in helpless laughter, and burst into giggles for weeks afterwards !
The same team have made other films worthy since, but nothing can or ever will get close to this masterpiece, and I mean MASTERPIECE, It is regarded by many critics as the funniest film ever made..... I 'aint goin to argue !
