Guest and his guests have a ball with folk

If you've ever seen a Christopher Guest movie, you'll know exactly what you're in for when you pop in "A Mighty Wind." There's the initial meeting of all the individual characters, they get together, there's a hilarious climax involving all of them (a dog show, a local play, in this case a concert) and then we flash forward to see how they're all doing now! Knowing that, you can have a great time with these zany folks, and marvel at the improvisation they all do. There's a lot of silly stuff in here, but most of it works. Eugene Levy, who wrote it with Guest, is of course the standout among these talented comedians. Some adult humor, but fine for younger teens.

Witty humor for many ages

If you liked the style of Spinal Tap or Best In Show, then you'll enjoy this movie just as much. The humor is intelligent and very well executed. It may be a little to old for the younger generation as it speaks to an audience that knows about the folk music scene in the 60's. But overall, it was extremely funny and the songs are quite catchy.

Great Guest Film

Not as great as spinal tap, but the best this particular group has done. As these guys go on, their films have more emotional weight, but still stay hilarious. Bob Balaban is great.
