David St-Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel have been friends since they performed as children outside London's tube stations. Working under a succession of names, they eventually found success in 1967 as Spinal Tap. Within a year, their singles were climbing the charts. The band expanded and in 1983, armed with a new record label, they returned to America after an absence of six years. They were greeted by film director Marty Di Bergi - a Spinal Tap fan for sixteen years. This is the film he made of their tour into the American heartland.
“Such a fine line between stupid and clever.” “None more black.” “This one goes to 11.” Audiences didn’t quite know what to make of This is Spinal Tap when it first hit movie theaters in 1984. Was it a comedy, or a real-life documentary about a British heavy metal band on a disastrous comeback tour? Actually, it was something else entirely and the first of its kind: the “mockumentary.” Rob Reiner's directorial debut is the story of Spinal Tap, an aging group of rockers with one last shot at fame and glory. Called “the funniest movie ever made about rock and roll” (Newsweek) and ranked #1 on Entertainment Weekly’s “Top 50 Cult Films of All-Time,” it’s the comedy phenomenon that will rock your socks off.
