There are very few movies that manage to take an industry and masterfully mock it in a very subtle and clever way, almost without letting the audience know it is mocking and not documenting. Spinal Tap is not one of those films.
Oh no, there is nothing subtle about Spinal Tap.
I can't write this article without having to giggle once in a while just thinking of some of the stupid silliness of Spinal Tap. Well, at least giggle when I am not busy humming some of their greatest..eh…hits?
