5 Totally hilarious!musicmad90 | 03/02/2009 | See all musicmad90's reviews (1)When I first watched This Is Spinal Tap, my first thought was 'what a waste of money'. During the first half an hour I got so bored that I nearly fell asleep! But then about half way through, there was a scene involving the bass player getting stuck in some shell thing that totally changed my perspective of the film and now it's one of my favourite films ever! Definately recommend to buy and yes, it does start slow but it picks itself up throughout the rest of the film. It may take a few watches to finally appeal to you and also to acknowledge all of the funny parts in the film but trust me, it is worth it. One of the funniest films i've ever seen!
