What a great movie. First, it features a reunion of Spinal Tap, but as a folk group called The Folksmen. They're actually pretty good. I love the one about the "chicken on the table, but you gotta say grace". Second, it's a reunion of all the major actors from Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show. I've yet to see the first, but the second was awesome. This one was even better.
Eugene Levy was at the top of his form as a burned out folk singer, one half of Mitch and Mickey. His diaglogue was positively painful to watch, with his stutters and pauses. But it was also painfully funny. And Catherine O'Hara (is she Canadian? She sounds it) was great as Mickey. They were definitely the highlight of the film.
Besides that, Parker Posey was great. I loved her ridiculous facial expressions during the performance segment. All the other bit players were pretty good, too, if not all that memorable. I only wish the movie had had more Larry Miller.
On a (totally) different note, did you know there are no midnight showings of X2 in Denver? I'll have to wait until ten AM tomorrow.
