Even if it wasnâ€™t technically the first one, THIS IS SPINAL TAP is still pretty much the granddaddy of all mockumentaries. This legendary satire focusing on the latest American comeback tour of the legendary, but now aging, rock group (dubbed â€œone of Englandâ€™s loudest bandsâ€) still manages to be hilarious and feel fresh decade after decade.Stars and co-writers Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Christopher Guest are amazing together (although Guest steals the show with his delivery in almost every scene). The tone is perfect. The gags are great and still on-point to this day. (mini Stonehenge! Dying drummers!) But itâ€™s the unexpected heart that sets the film apart â€” you laugh at these knuckleheads, but you also care about them, which is a rare feat in a comedy.
