A pleasant little outing, nothing offensive, but a little weak on the finish. I don't think the Spinal Tap approach works on folk music. Folk music had appeal in the 60's due to its hokeyness. The harder one tries to make fun of A pleasant little outing, nothing offensive, but a little weak on the finish. I don't think the Spinal Tap approach works on folk music. Folk music had appeal in the 60's due to its hokeyness. The harder one tries to make fun of it, the more genuine the parody sounds. One can sing such tunes with a straight face only through total absorbtion in the pretension. The fact that it's funny and ridiculous underneath is obvious to all but the most narcissistic revolutionaries. Expand

It's humor may be a little too slow and dry for some, but the lovable characters, infectious music, and entertaining use of mockumentary format make "A Mighty Wind" worth a glance.

Not as funny as "Best in Show" which wasn't as funny as "Guffman." The subject of folk music is mainly to blame; a soft, warm and fuzzy subject with actors making very soft character choices. Eugene Levy continues to be, for me, the Not as funny as "Best in Show" which wasn't as funny as "Guffman." The subject of folk music is mainly to blame; a soft, warm and fuzzy subject with actors making very soft character choices. Eugene Levy continues to be, for me, the weakest link. His character (monotonous, wild-eyed burnout) would be annoying in a five-minute SCTV sketch, much less a full-length feature. Ed Begley, Jr., however, shines as the Scandinavian-born public TV executive with a love for folk music and a penchant for peppering his conversation with Yiddish. The comedically talented Parker Posey was wasted, barely grabbing any screen time. "A Mighty Wind," with its moments, ultimately sputters. Expand

I loved spinal tap, and waiting for guffman, thought best in show was alright but this movie was horrible. I got a single good laugh out of this movie that's it nothing more. See it if you are a fan of Christopher Guest, otherwise stay away.
