#012: This Is Spinal Tap

criterion12ROB REINER

1984

Laughter is the best medicine, and much like medicine, it can be hard to know exactly how it works (if you’re not a scientist).  I’ve never quite known what it is that makes people laugh, I just know I love to do it, and I love to be made to laugh…and it’s rare that a movie tickles my funny bone quite as much as Rob Reiner’s breakthrough classic still does.  On this episode, I ask two guests, including my friend Michael Sheffer, to talk to me about the enduring value of Spinal Tap.
