Go straight to 11 - with the magic of DVD you can now go to your favourite Tap moments, whether it is the diminutive Stonehenge, the pod that won't open or the amp that goes all the way to 11. For the first time ever you can choose how to watch the greatest "rockumentary" in history.

See this cult phenomenon in its splendid entirety or use the menu to follow the band's antics via an interactive tour map of select scenes from a list of classic Tap quotes. And if all that isn't enough, there is, after all. the music - Hell Hole, Sex Farm and the timeless Big Bottom.

 This is ... the funniest film of all time

| | See all westfield's reviews (21)

Often rated as the greatest comedy film of all. If you are old enough to remember the heyday of "heavy metal" as I am, this brilliant spoof hits all the right notes.
The sad thing is its all so close to reality!! , the songs really were that sexist, the pants really were that tight and the band members really did think they were the next Beethoven!
All the pretentious nonsense is so brilliantly captured and yet you cant help but love the band members as they stumble to the next humilliating diasaster dressed in the tightest spandex ... fantastic !!

I'm sure I don't need to tell you about Spinal Tap. This is the best rockumentary out there and a damn funny film. What I do need to tell you is how good this DVD is. You get a load of extras from music videos, to ad spots, to deleted scenes and a ton more. But the most essential thing on this DVD is the commentary from the Spinal Tap actors IN CHARACTER! The result of this is a second film where the Tap reacts to the injustice commited by Marty DeBurgi's rocumentary and reminise over the goings on with the tour at the time. Watch the film without and then watch it with the commentary for maximum enjoyment.

i dont think there is a movie out there that you can watch again and again, but still see something funny in it that you haven't seen whilst watching previously!! there is alot of funny moments in the movie, sure there are the obious jokes - this amp goes up to 11 etc.. but there is also alot of little thing that some maynot pick up on, e.g. when they are playing big bottoms on stage they have three bass guitars - genius! alot of the movie is improvised as well which is pretty clever.

another thing which i like is that the actors actually can play! and the songs are really good! even though they are just joke songs!
i could go on all day just quoting stuff from this.. but i shant!

the dvd package is brilliant too - jammed packed with good extras and not just the usuall rubbish! there is a couple of music videos, live performances, scenes which were cut from the movie but are just as funny (like an hours worth), and the commentry is the best commentry ever. i dont usually watch commentry, as i have a life, but in this case they actually do the commentry in character which is very clever.

 Tap into this!!

This has got to be one of the funniest films EVER! I love it. Filmed in the style of a Documentary following one of America's Heavy Metal bands, Spinal Tap. This "Mockumentary" epitomises and pokes fun at the quintessential rock bands of the 70's and early 80's. The film is packed with hilarious moments, such as getting lost backstage, how to turn an amp up to 11, and having numerous drummers die in a range of bizarre and ridiculous circumstances.

Not only is the film itself very funny, but the songs that Spinal Tap play are hysterical, especially Sex Farm, Stonehenge and the aptly titled Big Bottom.

The 2 disc edition also comes jam-packed with extras, including commentaries, a whole marathon of deleted scenes and some of the funniest music videos you are ever likely to see.

This is a hysterical film, one of my personal favourites; it's well worth the value and I highly recommend it.

 Commentary is a must

If you thought the film was funny as it stands then watch it again with the commentary on - it's better still. The commentary features the surviving members of the band (ie all of them bar the drummers) reviewing the mockumentary as their characters - it has to be one of the best commentary tracks on any DVD released. Get rid of that old VHS and buy the DVD!
