Movie Reviews

Groucho Reviews - 10/10 by Peter Canavese The story of an embarrasingly inept heavy-metal band called Spinal Tap, Rob Reiner's film set the mockumentary standard that has come to define much of modern screen comedy. [Blu-ray]
Variety - 9/10 by Variety Staff For music biz insiders, This Is Spinal Tap is a vastly amusing satire of heavy metal bands.
Antagony & Ecstasy - 9/10 by Tim Brayton Returning to Spinal Tap always brings with it a pronounced sense of discovery, a freshness that is uncommon with movies generally and unspeakably rare in a comedy.
Mania.com - 8/10 by Rob Vaux Yes Nigel, you did go to 11. Where would cinematic comedy be if you hadn't?
Common Sense Media - 8/10 by Afsheen Nomai Hilarious, ribald, drug-filled rock send-up.
ColeSmithey.com - 7/10 by Cole Smithey [VIDEO] Although examples of the mockumentary genre existed before "Spinal Tap" this heavy metal comedy is considered an epitome of cinematic satire.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Dave Kehr The material is consistently clever and funny, though ultimately the attitudes are too narrow to nourish a feature-length film.
TIME Magazine - 6/10 by Richard Corliss For all its japes and jokes, the movie is really about exhaustion of the spirit: sitting in a bleak hotel suite at 4 a.m. with the bad taste of last night in the mouth and the feeling that tomorrow will not be a better day.
Bangitout.com - 6/10 by Jordan Hiller The original suffers upon review simply because its novelty has worn off. But being the first mainstream feature of its kind, it deserves due reverence.
Reel Film Reviews - 5/10 by David Nusair ...a sporadically amusing but all-too-uneven piece of work...
