Reviews

Variety Staff Variety | March 26, 2009

For music biz insiders, This Is Spinal Tap is a vastly amusing satire of heavy metal bands.

Richard Corliss TIME Magazine | August 19, 2008

For all its japes and jokes, the movie is really about exhaustion of the spirit: sitting in a bleak hotel suite at 4 a.m. with the bad taste of last night in the mouth and the feeling that tomorrow will not be a better day.

Geoff Andrew Time Out | February 09, 2006

Reiner's brilliantly inventive script and smart visuals avoid all the obvious pitfalls, making this one of the funniest ever films about the music business.

Janet Maslin New York Times | May 20, 2003

It stays so wickedly close to the subject that it is very nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | August 15, 2002

The film is a composite of classic moments, all of which we sense could have happened to any of the classic heavy metal bands -- or at least to those whose members combined delusions of greatness with low I.Q.s.

Jessica Winter Village Voice | August 16, 2001

This Is Spinal Tap doesn't pull punches...

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | January 01, 2000

The satire has a deft, wicked touch.
