A Mighty Wind

2003 PG-13 1h 32m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
Satirist in extremis Christopher Guest aims his mockumentary lens at 1960s folk musicians -- specifically, the earnest Folksmen (portrayed by erstwhile Spinal Tappers Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer), the too-perky New Main Street Singers and former lovebirds Mitch & Mickey. As the three acts prepare to reunite for a tribute concert, music and emotions run high. This Grammy winner is a parody in the tradition of Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that A Mighty Wind includes sexual humor with references to the adult film industry, homosexuality, and a sex-change operation. One character starts cross-dressing and others practice a silly religion based on colors. Language is pretty mild, and while these mockumentary subjects can be hilariously absurd, there's nothing mean-spirited in the comedy; a real love of folk music shines through.

Sexual Content

Sexual humor about the adult film industry; a fake religion where a flame represents a penis; a model-size brothel in a train set, and more. Mickey stays in a motel room where he hears people having sex next door. He mentions how he used to have sex with chamber maids before a show.

Violence

One quick slap upside the head.

Language

"Hell" and "damn."

Social Behavior

Despite being a mockumentary, this movie is never mean-spirited; you can tell there's a respect and love for folk music.

Consumerism

The Powerpuff Girls playing in the background of one scene.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drug references. Mentions of Mickey's past drinking.
