Christopher Guest, director of "Waiting for Guffman" and "Best in Show", returns with another mockumentary. When folk icon Irving Steinbloom passed away, he left a legacy of music and a family of performers he had shepherded to folk stardom: Mitch & Mickey (Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hare) were the epitome of young love until their partnership was torn apart by heartbreak; classic troubadours The Folkman (Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer); and The New Main Street Singers (featuring John Michael Higgins, Jane Lynch and Parker Posey), the most meticulously color-coordinated "neuftet" ever to hit an amusement park near you. Now, for one night only in New York City's Town Hall, these three groups will reunite and gather together to celebrate the music that almost made them famous as they generate A Mighty Wind.

Critics Consensus: Though not as uproariously funny as Guest's previous movies, A Mighty Wind is also more heartfelt.

Common Sense Says
Hilarious folk music mockumentary has some innuendo.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A Mighty Wind includes sexual humor with references to the adult film industry, homosexuality, and a sex-change operation. One character starts cross-dressing and others practice a silly religion based on colors. Language is pretty mild, and while these mockumentary subjects can be hilariously absurd, there's nothing mean-spirited in the comedy; a real love of folk music shines through.
