Heavy Metal Blunder: This Is Spinal Tap
John Mendelsohn, Creem, 1984
THE MISSUS USED to be married to a little asshole who produced comedy specials for cable television. The principals of This Is Spinal Tap director Rob Reiner and stars Michael McKean, Harry Shearer, and Chris Guest were frequent visitors to her and little assholes home. She tells me that said principals constitute a fervent mutual admiration society that perceives itself as representing 99% of modern American satiric genius.
