...so do what the Good Book, do what the Good Book, do what the Good Book tells you to!

Another gem from CG! The charactatures were spot on, and the dialogue and lyrics were brilliant.


A Mighty Wind blows good

A Mighty Wind is the latest and, in my opinion, best of the film trilogy written by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy - a more mature and thoughtful (yet still hilarious) follow-up to Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show. In the first two films we laughed at the characters; in Wind we actually wind up caring about some of these people. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara as divorced folk duo "Mitch and Mickey" are by far the true standouts in this wonderful comedy, and Bob Balaban's neurotic Jonathan Steinbloom may have earned the year's award for "Outstanding Film Character Who Deserves To Have The Living S**t Smacked Out of Him." Ed Begley Jr.'s Yiddish-spouting Lars Olfen is terrific, and Jennifer Coolidge is downright bizarre. Fred Willard is - as always - Fred Willard. And Christopher Guest's talent for musical parody is put to its best use yet. Some fans of the first two films may be disappointed that the humor in this film isn't as biting, but virtually every line in Wind brings at least a smile or a chuckle.

The DVD is loaded with extra features, including cut scenes, scenes from the TV appearances of Mitch and Mickey and The Folksmen, and the complete public broadcasting reunion concert. As with Guffman and Best in Show, the commentary track with Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy is definitely worth a listen.

Christopher Guest's most well-rounded effort yet

I can't confess to know much (anything?) about folk music, but having been a fan of Spinal Tap and Best in Show I was really looking forward to A Mighty Wind. We knew the guys from the original Spinal Tap had some chops, but they're really great here. It is almost like an alternate universe "This is Spinal Tap" where instead of becoming "Spinal Tap," the Thamesmen had grown up in the U.S. and went from singing about the rainbow people and went into folk music... and that's this movie. Can't wait to see what this crew comes up with next!
