Best Mockumentary Since Spinal Tap - Possibly Better
13 March 2008 | by antonio_4346See all my reviews

When I bought my ticket, I wasn't prepared for the laughter I'd soon experience. Musicians are well known for their senses of humor, but Les Claypool really outdid himself. This guy's got it down; to make great music and great movies is a very admirable skill.

Even those who are not musically inclined will love this movie. Each character reflects their real-life counterparts, whom we all know and love.

If you laughed at Spinal Tap, you'll cackle and howl at Electric Apricot. This is, by far, the best film National Lampoon has had its name on--at least in the last ten years.

From an avid musician, this is a no-brainer to recommend all around.
