Plot Summary

David St-Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel have been friends since they performed as children outside London's tube stations. Working under a succession of names, they eventually found success in 1967 as Spinal Tap. Within a year, their singles were climbing the charts. The band expanded and in 1983, armed with a new record label, they returned to America after an absence of six years. They were greeted by film director Marty Di Bergi - a Spinal Tap fan for sixteen years. This is the film he made of their tour into the American heartland.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It stays so wickedly close to the subject that it is very nearly indistinguishable from the real thing. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: 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. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: For music biz insiders, This Is Spinal Tap is a vastly amusing satire of heavy metal bands. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: This Is Spinal Tap doesn't pull punches... – Jessica Winter, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010
