Spinal Tap 2 Can Perfectly Pay Off The Original's Best Joke
This Is Spinal Tap 2 can finally do full, girth-y justice to Nigel Tufnel's classical masterpiece - the inimitable "Lick My Love Pump." Though The Office shunted mockumentary-style comedy into the mainstream, 1984's This Is Spinal Tap remains one of the most celebrated examples of that fourth wall-breaking format. The tale of a fictional (well, semi-fictional - they've since released three proper studio albums) British rock band is now getting a sequel 38 years later. This Is Spinal Tap 2 reunites Rob Reiner (director and in-story filmmaker, Marty Di Bergi) alongside the central trio of Michael McKean (David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (Derek Smalls).
