Waiting for Guffman

Critics Consensus

This riotously deadpan mockumentary about aspiring community theater performers never stoops to ridicule oft-ridiculous characters.

Movie Info

In Blaine, Missouri, a veteran of dubious off-off-Broadway productions casts a dentist, a pair of travel agents, a Dairy Queen worker, and an auto mechanic in his stage musical tracing the town's 150-year history. And what a show they put on in this delightful, funny, satisfying comedy!
