Description

A spoof about a filmmaker making a documentary about a once-famous, now almost forgotten British heavy metal band returning to the United States after 17 years for a concert tour.


"Reiner's brilliantly inventive script and smart visuals avoid all the obvious pitfalls, making this one of the funniest ever films about the music business."
- Time Out


"It stays so wickedly close to the subject that it is very nearly indistinguishable from the real thing."
-New York Times
