Reviews
Mine: Often very funny, always fun to watch. Terrific stuff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Admirably precise parody of a rock documentary, with Reiner as director Marty Di Bergi, who chronicles latest American tour of aging British rock group that's a working definition of the term ``loser. '' Collaborative effort improvised by Reiner and his cast of colleagues; cunning satire through and through, though not always terribly funny. Our favorite bit: the amplifier that goes to ``11. '' Many familiar faces appear in cameos. P. S. : In the '90s the ``fictitious'' group reunited for a series of concerts and a TV special. Laser and video re-release in 1995 features many new scenes.
