THIS IS SPINAL TAP
1984, Rialto Pictures, 82 min, USA, Dir: Rob Reiner

Director Rob Reiner’s funniest film, this side-splitting rock mockumentary chronicles the less-than-triumphant return to America of legendary British heavy-metal group Spinal Tap. As the band members who don’t spontaneously combust or die in gardening accidents, Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer and Michael McKean deliver spot-on performances; the many terrific cameos include Patrick Macnee as Sir Denis Eton-Hogg and Rob Reiner himself as documentary filmmaker Marty DiBergi.


AND SO IT GOES
2014, 95 min, USA, Dir: Rob Reiner

Realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas) is more successful than he is likable, and that doesn’t bother him a bit - until his estranged son leaves him with a granddaughter he never knew he had. Looking for help with this new arrival, Little turns to his neighbor (Diane Keaton) and begins to realize that his go-it-alone life is missing something. With Frances Sternhagen and Frankie Valli.


WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
1989, Warner Bros., 96 min, USA, Dir: Rob Reiner

Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) meet in college and spend years debating whether it's possible for men and women to be friends - all the while falling in love without realizing it. Nora Ephron's landmark screenplay is filled with quotable lines and sharp insights, and costars Bruno Kirby and Carrie Fisher lend hilarious support. One of the definitive romantic comedies of the ’80s.
