Very clever comedy again from the same gang from Best in Show and Mighty Wind. I enjoyed this one too.

GOOD 1996 Christopher Guest mockumentary - but didn't work for me as well as his others.

I absolutely adore This Is Spinal Tap, so I really expected to enjoy this one, but the comedy just fell flat, for me. I will probably give it another go, at some point in the future, because it could have been that I just wasn't in the mood for the genre. But it will be a while before I make another attempt.

Absolutely loved this film. Great watch, realistic. Great actors/actresses! You will laugh and cry as well. 5 stars!

Not the best of these but you can see where Spinal Tap came from.

Waiting for Guffman is a comedy in the documentary style starring, co-written and directed by Christopher Guest that was released in 1997. Its cast included Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy, Fred Willard, and Parker Posey.

The title of the film is a reference to the Samuel Beckett play, Waiting for Godot. As in the other mockumentaries created by Guest, the majority of the dialogue is improvised. Because the film is about the production of a stage musical, it contains several original musical numbers.
