The Christopher Guest mockumentary that started it all, "This Is Spinal Tap," blended brilliant musical parodies and absurd non-sequiturs well ahead of its time in 1984. It was so convincing that a young Gene Lyons and a drunken Ozzy Osbourne thought Spinal Tap was a real band.

In this episode, Shat The Movies commissioner Scott H. in Friendswood, Texas, treats Ash to one of her favorite comedies. Consider it a Christmas gift full of amazing one-liners, cringe harmonies, jaw-dropping cameos and a strange sense of heart.

We all remember "it goes to 11," but so many other gags make "This Is Spinal Tap" worth rewatching in 2022: Stonehenge, exploding drummers, flower people, Australians' nightmares and "Big Bottoms." Did it make our Top 10 movies of all time? Have a listen and find out.
