This mock documentary, set in the fictional town of Blaine, Missouri, chronicles the attempts of its talent-free residents to put on a show celebrating the burg's 150th anniversary. From the fey director Corky St. Clair to the Dairy Queen girl, the cast and crew scream incompetence. Furthermore, St. Claire has invited Guffman -- a Broadway producer -- to see the production, with the hopes that they will eventually make it to the Great White Way. Can the local yokels make something out of nothing?
"...The nonstop amusing mockumentary WAITING FOR GUFFMAN does to small-town acting troupes what THIS IS SPINAL TAP did to heavy-metal..."--3.5 out of 4 stars
- Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"...[This] mockumentary from SPINAL TAP alumnus Christopher Guest has genuine laughs..."
