About the Movie
The newest "mockumentary" from the inimitable Christopher Guest ("Best In Show," "This Is Spinal Tap") hilariously captures the reunion of 1960s folk musicians in New York, with a stellar ensemble cast whose hilarious improvisational comedy is as inspired as ever. Also starring Eugene Levy ("Bringing Down the House," the "American Pie" movies), Harry Shearer (TV's "The Simpsons," "This Is Spinal Tap"), Michael McKean ("Auto Focus," "Best in Show"), Parker Posey ("Superman Returns," "Best in Show"), Catherine O'Hara ("Home Alone," "Beetlejuice") and Fred Willard ("Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Not only is the material amusing, it's charmingly engaging.
Fresh: You don't leave A Mighty Wind laughing so much as humming. Its dialogue may be improvised, but its music is well rehearsed.
Fresh: A worthy entry into Guest's growing gallery of movies that prove far more interesting than the worlds at which they're so brilliantly poking fun.
Fresh: The most mature, heartfelt and keenly observed film of Team Guffman.
Oh so funny
What a Movie. There is not a dull moment from start to finish. You almost get the impression that the folk music scene is as depicted in this movie. The jokes are funny, the characters are skillfully developed, and the script is excellent. I highly recommend it.
Humor and heart
'A Mighty Wind' is more than a spoof. It is genuinely empathetic to its characters. There is a pleasing blend of humor (some quite silly, other, subtle) and humanity. The performances are flawless.
