Spinal Tap, one of England’s loudest (fake) bands, are chronicled by film director Marty DiBergi on what proves to be a fateful tour.
Rob Reiner’s hilarious mockumentary, ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ shines a light on the self-contained universe of a metal band struggling to get back on the charts, including everything from its complicated history of ups and downs, gold albums, name changes and undersold concert dates, along with the full host of requisite groupies, promoters, hangers-on and historians, sessions, release events and those special behind-the-scenes moments that keep it all real.

WHAT THE PRESS SAY
“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.”
Geoff Andrew, Time Out
“Reiner’s brilliant “rockumentary” sends up its subject matter and the documentary form, with such deft perception that confusing it with the genuine article is an easy mistake to make.”
Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
DID YOU KNOW…?
The actors are all competent musicians and they’re actually playing on the soundtrack.
Several rock stars have commented on what an uncannily accurate spoof of the rock and heavy metal world this film was. Ozzy Osbourne said when he first watched the film, he was the only person who wasn’t laughing; he thought it was a real documentary. U2 guitarist The Edge said, “I didn’t laugh, I wept. It was so close to the truth.”
