As I continue my traipse through the great movies of the past, I like to post a little bit of the flavor of some of my faves. I found This is Spinal Tap to be especially funny.Haiku
A mockumentary about an aging rock band, their first tour in 6 years and the humiliations that they have to endure:

Truer words were never spoken:
We even get to see a bit of their flower power phase:

Luckily they do find redemption in the place so many other washed up acts end up - Japan!Summary
