A gem of comedic talent
8 December 2004 | by (upstate) – See all my reviews

Always amazed me how many people love Spinal Tap, but know nothing of this (almost) sequel. Not the biggest Crystal fan, but the avenues for Sammy and Buddy Young make sense here, and the supporting cast is beyond funny. Chris Guest, you get the feeling, is a driving force behind any production, and Eugene Levy will be funny in his coffin!! Forget the second half, the actual concert performance, this Marty Dibergi yak-u-mentary contains great laughs from incredibly talented people, Crystal included. 'Fort Fun' and Sammy playing the pyramid game show are must comedy sees, and the Brother Theadore-Sammy Davis who's on first is one of the most surrealistic skit moments ever.
