Once upon a time, Spinal Tap had a big hit song. Now, nearly two decades later, Spinal Tap still clings to some glint of their lost glory as they embark on an accident-plagued tour across America. In Cleveland, the group gets lost underneath the stage. In Washington, they're accidentally booked at an Air Force formal dance. And in a Chicago record store, no one shows up to get their autographs.

Whether or not you're a die-hard fan of the group, you'll love this detailed "rockumentary" of Engand's legendary Spinal Tap.

Please - Please - Please don't anyone dare tell me that this vacuous, comatose freakshow was really supposed to be the best and the funniest movie ever made about Rock'n'Roll - 'Cause, hey, if that was so, then, let me tell ya, plain and simple - Rock'n'Roll is in frickin' serious need of resuscitation, like, pronto!_____ I sincerely think that doofus-director, Rob Reiner, must've secretly hated everything that rock'n'roll stood for to have presented these fictitious, UK rockers known as "Spinal Tap" in such a drab, dim-witted, and disfavorable light as was clearly the case here._____ Over these many years I have heard so much positive praise about This Is Spinal Tap's outrageous hilariousness, and such - But, for me, (considering its over-ripe subject matter) it turned out to be one of the tamest and lamest comedies that I've ever seen._____ This severely dated film should've been literally loaded to the rafters with great one-liners, silly off-the-wall shenanigans and zaniness galore - But, unfortunately, on top of its painful predictability, it didn't contain a single, solitary memorable line worth quoting._____ I seriously thought that this film's 82-minute running time was really pushing the limits of what I could reasonably tolerate. Had this film, perhaps, been edited down to, say, 30 minutes, then I think that its overall appeal and humorous punch might've greatly benefited in the long run._____ So, would I say that "Rock'n'Roll Rules" (!?) - Nope. It doesn't. At least from where This Is Spinal Tap is concerned, it doesn't!

Very dry humor, and really corny. Some funny bits, though.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

If you didn't know that Spinal Tap wasn't a real band you'd be convinced this was a real rockumentary. It is totally hilarious.

Marty DiBergi: "Let's talk about your music today, uh... one thing that puzzles me, ummm... is the makeup of your audience. It seems to be, uh, predominantly, young boys." David St. Hubbins: "Well, it's a sexual thing, really. Aside from the identifying that the boys do with us, there's also a reaction to the, of the female to our music." Nigel Tufnel: "Yeah, really they're quite fearful. That's my theory. They see us on stage, with tight trousers... We've got, you know -- armadillos in our trousers. I mean, it's really quite frightening -- the size. And, and they, they run screaming."
