One breathtaking moment of clarity between Eugene Levy's Mitch and Catherine O'Hara's Mickey gives way to an anticipated kiss during which you can practically sense the characters' hearts thumping and their fictional contemporaries rooting for them.

Director Christopher Guest teams up recurring cast members from his past ensemble comedies ("This Is Spinal Tap," "Waiting For Guffman" and "Best In Show") for this immaculately executed comedy of folk music stereotypes.

Where Guffman and Best found hilarious comedy in collisions of fractured personalities, Mighty Wind boasts only a few moments of inspired chaos.

Ao substituir a acidez de seus filmes anteriores por um tom mais simpático aos personagens, Guest perde parte da graça - mas, ainda assim, consegue divertir bastante.

A Mighty Wind doesn't blow. But as satire, it doesn't sting much, either.

A Mighty Wind might look like a PBS documentary shown during pledge month, but it's actually one of the brightest comedies we're likely to see this year.

A Mighty Wind is a decent comedy, but it's also A Teeny Bland.

The humour is very dry, only occasionally absurd, and always extremely close to the bone.

Guest manages to create a movie that is funny and somehow more touching and heartfelt than his earlier work.
