A Mighty Wind Album ~ Various

As great as the other songs are (even though they are cheesy, try listening to authentic folk music and try and tell me some of that isn't cheesy), the true stars are Mitch and Mickey a.k.a. Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara. From the film to the soundtrack, the course of true love never does run smooth and sometimes doesn't run at all or gets knocked out in the case of M&M. Their love transpires on the film and also on the great soundtrack. Of course who could play a formerly married couple that left true love bitterly, come back together and sing better than Eugene and Catherine who go back thirty years? Their love is certainly apparent in the film (I have to admit I cried when they did… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mighty Fine Film, March 8 2004
I had never seen a mockumentary until this film. My sister said she saw "This is Spinal Tap" for one of her music classes and she said she nearly died laughing. I like satirical, underlying humour so I thought this movie would be perfect for my taste. I must admit I absolutely loved it. It's definately not a "smack in the face funny" but moreso "I sprained my ankle and I don't feel anything yet" funny. It's so satirical and so brilliant that it as though I was watching a real documentary on PBS. All of it is subtle and underlying especially the Bohner's interview where we find out Mrs. Bohner was a porn star.
Since the plot has already been given, I thought I would say what stole… Read more
