If you're in the mood to watch a practically perfect movie, I highly recommend watching the classic cult comedy This is Spinal Tap.
The movie is a flawless mockumentary that follows the hilariously wretched band Spinal Tap and its members David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel and Derek Smalls in later days of the band, when they are well past their prime; although "prime" may be too strong a word to describe their hay day, more so the got really lucky in the past and have coasted on that luck and change the image of the band to keep up with whatever is trendy at the time. They're just like the Beatles, but without the talent or charisma or wit or intelligence or social awareness and they follow the trends instead of setting them.
The songs in the movie are brilliantly bad and oddly enough, for bad songs, they're catchy as hell and you'll most likely find yourself getting songs such as "Big Bottoms" and "Stonehenge" stuck in your head and humming them to yourself at work. You may not get the tune to "Lick my Love Pump" stuck in your head, but you'll never forget the title.
I could drone on for hours and hours about the brilliance of the film, but I don't want to spoil anything for those of you out there who have yet to see it. Sufficed to say this is an absolute must see film and if you haven't seen it already now is a great time to watch it because it's currently available on Netflix's View it Now selection (no I don't work for Netflix, I just find them very affordable).
On a scale of 1 to 10, this film is an 11.
