THIS IS SPINAL TAP is probably the funniest rock mockumentary ever made and also it's one of my favourite movies ever, so naturally I wanted to see this spoofy Tap concert. There is gags between the concert footage with Nigel Tufnel and St. Hubbins discussing their childhood and early musical life in Squatney, London. The sound quality of the actual concert was terrible. Michael McKean's voice was terrible. Very grouchy sound and the gags just didn't work. They obviously were playing off on the funniness of THIS IS SPINAL TAP, but the gags here are very similar to THIS IS.. and also very predictable. If you are a die-hard TAP fan, you'll probably love this, but for me it was a huge dissapointment! 4/10
