"This satire about a fictional heavy metal group named Spinal Tap spoofs nearly every facet of rock 'n' roll -- from vacuous modern songwriting to half-baked album promos to pyrotechnic concerts. Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer portray the washed-up, aging British rockers whose tresses and egos outstrip their talent. Chronicling the band's evolution and its calamitous comeback tour is filmmaker Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner)."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The satire has a deft, wicked touch." .
James Rocchi, Movie Reviewer
"Mock "rockumentary" is wildly funny and deeply influential."
Parents need to know that Spinal Tap is a fictional band, and this humorous “mocumentary” about them highlights their failure. There are moments when the language gets a bit heavy with curse words, but these are short and sporadic.
