    A Might Wind - 4/16

    [IMG]images/stor/wind.jpg[/IMG]
    A Mighty Wind (2003)

    Synopsis: When folk icon Irving Steinbloom passed away, he left behind a legacy of music and a family of performers he has shepherded to folk stardom. To celebrate a life spent submerged in folk, Irving's loving son Jonathan has decided to put together a memorial concert featuring some of Steinbloom's best-loved musicians. There's Mitch and Mickey, who were the epitome of young love until their partnership was torn apart by heartbreak; classic troubadours The Folksmen, whose records were endlessly entertaining for anyone able to punch a hole in the center to play them; and The New Main Street Singers, the most meticulously color-coordinated "neuftet" ever to hit an amusement park. Now for one night only in New York City's Town Hall, these three groups will reunite and gather together to celebrate the music that almost made them famous.

    When Spinal Tap meets Second City!

    I just saw the preview yesterday while waiting for "The Quiet Man" to begin. It looks great and I love the cast. "Waiting for Guffman," "Best In Show," are in this same mold and it all started with SCTV and the "Spinal Tap" greats - Harry Shearer, Michael McKean and Christopher Guest.

    If only John Candy were alive today, he could only make this better.

    This looks great. I'm looking forward to it!
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    This film showed at the Taos film fest last weekend and it is hilarious! If you're a fan of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries check it out. The website has lots and lots of video clips, pics and samples of the songs - http://amightywindonline.warnerbros.com/index.php

    If this is anything like Best in Show (which we have on DVD), this one will be great!

    Favorite line from Waiting For Guffman: "They...probed me."

    Saw it this evening-- AWESOME! It totally lives up to Guffman and Best in Show. Jennifer Coolidge is one of the funniest actresses alive!
