➱ STORYLINE:

"This Is Spinal Tap" is a mockumentary comedy film directed by Rob Reiner. It hilariously chronicles the ups and downs of the fictional British heavy metal band Spinal Tap. The film showcases their outrageous performances, behind-the-scenes antics, and the absurdity of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. As the band members navigate a series of comically disastrous events, the film provides a satirical take on the music industry.
