25 years ago, a film appeared about a British rock group trying to break into the American scene. With improved acting... wait... improvved... Hrm... that's not really a word, is it? Can we start over? Great. Thanks.

In 1984, This is Spinal Tap hit the theaters, confusing audiences everywhere. This mockumentary featured Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Christopher Guest as a British heavy metal band. From getting lost back stage (something Rob Halford later confessed to) to the influence of a girlfriend on the band, the jokes were set up then delivered during improvised (there's the word I was looking for) scenes shot with hand-held cameras.Now what??? )
