A Mighty Wind vs. Face/Off



on 4/30/2012

Going with Face/Off here. That movie is just big dumb fun, with two stars holding nothing back in terms of craziness and hyper-stylish action. A Mighty Wind is good, but it's my least favorite of the Guest mockumentaries. The Eugene Levy segments that people seem so enamored with never really gripped me, and the parts with Fred Willard and the Spinal Tap guys could only carry the movie so far. A Mighty Wind is still worth seeing, but it's not a quintessential movie of its time/genre the way Face/Off is.
