With 20 votes cast, the favorite Christopher Guest mockumentary for the readers of Lotsa 'Splainin' is the original and the only one Christopher Guest did not direct. This is Spinal Tap ended up with 45% of the votes, and it would have been 50% except that I changed my vote to last year's For Your Consideration because it looked so lonely.
While of course this was just asking opinions, so technically no one is "incorrect", I don't have a problem with anyone voting for any of the movies. Spinal Tap has a lot of great and memorable lines, funny scenes like the listing of ways the drummers have died, the show with Stonehenge and Marty DiBergi listing the terrible reviews of some of their albums while the band has to give their honest reactions. The most famous line is probably "These go to eleven.", but I have at least a dozen fond memories of this movie.
That said, I think all the movies are terrific comedies and the vote cast for For Your Consideration was not just a mercy vote. For gags per minute, I think it's the best of the five, though Tap, Guffman and A Mighty Wind have the advantage of music, and Best In Show has the gorgeous dogs.
Okay, that was so much fun, let's do another one. Last week, I defined the categories of the good, the bad and the cute overload of lolz cats. By my definition, Copy Cat shown here is either a good lolz or a cute overload lolz. It is a situation a kitteh could get into naturally, so it doesn't qualify as a bad lolz, though it might not be to everyone's taste. Cast your vote for how you think it should be categorized. Tabulation will end on Sunday.
