It's not that A Mighty Wind isn't funny. It is. But it's also amazingly insubstantial. Five minutes after it's over, it begins to evaporate. And it doesn't help that Wind breaks (oh, come on, you couldn't have resisted either) no new ground.
A Mighty Wind succeeds at being witty and sincere like all of Guest's and Co's. previous efforts. This time, however, there is a layer of humanity on the power of innocence that makes this film unique.
