Hilarious folk music mockumentary has some innuendo.

There is no shortage of performers with comic skills in A Mighty Wind. What's lacking instead is a visible premise for the satire and ridicule.

More of a warm breeze than a great gust, but its simple, smart pleasures carry the force of a hurricane.

You don't leave A Mighty Wind laughing so much as humming. Its dialogue may be improvised, but its music is well rehearsed.

While Guest never forgets to laugh, he never forgets to love either, embracing the very subject he is simultaneously throttling.

A hoot.
May 8, 2003
A rollicking, tongue-in-cheek sendup.

The most mature, heartfelt and keenly observed film of Team Guffman.
April 22, 2003
There is plenty of top-flight comedy in this brisk picture.
April 21, 2003
[T]he most heartwarming spoof ever made.

It's just about as terrific as Guest's previous two wingdings, Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show.
April 18, 2003
Perhaps, after Best of Show and the terrific Waiting for Guffman this is a bit of a letdown. But it's still nice to leave a theater with a smile these days -- even though it would be even nicer to leave it laughing.
April 18, 2003
With Guest again demonstrating affection for the subjects he teases -- the humor is never mean-spirited, and some of the music is kind of fun -- his fans are likely to be toe-tappingly pleased.
April 18, 2003
Not only is the material amusing, it's charmingly engaging.
April 17, 2003
A Mighty Wind is appealing and moment-to-moment enjoyable but lacks the focus of Guest's earlier films.
April 16, 2003
A worthy entry into Guest's growing gallery of movies that prove far more interesting than the worlds at which they're so brilliantly poking fun.
April 16, 2003
A fine-grained picture that goes for the sideways laughs rather than the straight-ahead ones.
