This movie is hilarious beyond words!  Christopher Guest of Spinal Tap and Best in Show fame writes, directs, and stars in this film.  It's about a flamboyant high school drama teacher named Corky St. Clair who lives in the fictional small town Blaine, Missouri.  He decides to create a production about the founding of the town (aptly named Red, White, and Blaine) for the 150th anniversery festival. 

I can't go into a whole lot of detail about why this mockumentary is funny, but I'm going to tell you right now to watch it!  Not only is it hilarious and quotable, but you also notice a lot of little things the second time around.  This is one movie that I suspect you could watch over and over again, without getting tired of the jokes.

No, I have not.  I'll be checking it out soon if it can hold a candle to Spinal Tap.

Best in Show

saw the above a year and a half ago. I enjoyed it.

The second, I believe, in the supposed "trilogy".

WAITING FOR GUFFMAN and A MIGHTY WIND are my favourites Afro

A MIGHTY WIND lampoons the folk music culture just as well as SPINAL TAP does the Metal culture.
I think you need to know a little about folk music for it to be as funny as SPINAL TAP.
