Directed by Rob Reiner | 1984

With Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Harry Shearer

"Reiner's brilliantly inventive script and smart visuals avoid all the obvious pitfalls, making this one of the funniest ever films about the music business."
—Time Out London

The mock rock doc that goes to 11, This Is Spinal Tap chronicles the implosion of “one of England's loudest bands” as it embarks on an ill-fated American tour. Brilliantly lampooning every heavy metal cliché in the book—from the bombastic theatrics and brain-dead lyrics to the bad hair and sexism—this endlessly quotable cult classic is “one of the funniest movies ever made” (Roger Ebert).
