Default A Mighty Wind

Has anyone seen this? It's hilarious! Pay special attention to Mitch and Mickey.

I really want to see this but haven't got around to it yet. I've watched the preview and it looks so funny - especially the obvious BN parallel!

If you liked that movie, you are also sure to love Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman. Same people are in it and it's the same "mockumentary" concept. I never stop laughing at these movies so matter how many times I've watched them. I have yet to see Mighty Wind!!!

I *heart* this movie. I went to the movies the other night and when the film broke, some guy yelled "Hey man, wha happened?" just like Fred Willard. Best part of the night for me hehehe.

Best In Show was great! You'll love A Mighty Wind.

Bwaaaha! How about the freaky color religion "The Bohners" were into? Too much.

Christopher Guest is a genius!!! A Mighty Wind was fab; I saw it three times in the theater. Still, nothing tops Waiting For Guffman; THAT was *HILARIOUS*. I watched it in bed and had to bust out the rubber sheets.

Someone told me that "A Mighty Wind" is a remake (albeit parody remake) of another movie, does anyone know what the original movie was?

Best In Show is fantastic.

Waiting For Guffman is really good, too; but I'm glad I saw BiS first. C.Guest's style is an acquired taste.

I have yet to see Mighty Wind...but, I think it's a slam dunk that I'll love it.

All three of the above are basically "Sons of Spinal Tap". That is definitely where Guest got his roots.

Default Lindsey likes it too...

...at the Soundstage taping, at one point someone's guitar cut out and disappeared- I think it was Neale. But the whole band stopped the song, and Lindsey looked over at Neale and said "Wha happened?" just like Fred.

I cracked up laughing knowing what it was an allusion to, but I don't think very many other people got it. I think he saw me laughing, though ;-)

BTW, if you like the film- you should check out the soundtrack. It has all the stuff in the movie, plus extras that weren't included on the film- the BEST is the Michael McKeon/Christopher Guest/Harry Shearer version of "Start Me Up."

OMG Hayley! That's right. I hadn't seen the movie then so I didn't get it. I wonder if he sees shades of himself in the Mitch and Mickey thing?

I don't think Lindsey is, or will ever be, 1/100th of a degree as spacey as Mitch. But I get the Mitch/Mickey--Buckingham/Nicks connection. That's funny that Lindsey immitated the "Wha Happen?" line, actually it's totally hilarious because I can't even picture it!

Ok, this is a really old post but I just saw this movie recently so I thought I would respond. I absolutely adore this movie!!! I don't think it's as flat out funny as Christopher Guest's other movies, but it seems to have more depth and heart to it, especially when dealing with Mitch and Mickey. And Catherine O'Hara's performance was soooooo amazing...WOW. Although she was still so funny in this part she really showed her dramatic chops and I was completely impressed.

I haven't seen Waiting for Guffman.

I saw the first half of A Mighty Wind about a month ago but had to return the video before getting to see the rest.

I liked Best in Show. I think my favorites were Catherine O'Hara singing that hideously shrill "God Loves a Terrier" song and that woman from the Legally Blond movies ("Makes me want a hot dog REAL BAD") sitting with that moronic and plastic face (and a tiara in one scene) . And the couple who met after facing each other from Starbucks on opposite corners. Scary thing is, I hear there really are corners like those.
