SFMM in 'A Mighty Wind'

Friday, April 18, 2003 10:23 AM
Seeing that everyone aroung here likes to keep up on park/coaster sightings on the big screen, just thought I'd give the heads up about some SFMM footage in 'A Mighty Wind.'

The new Christopher Guest comedy features some footage of both Deja Vu and Psyclone in action. The signage at the park was altered for the film, but I can't remember what names the rides were given.

There is also footage of some model flat rides (whip, swinging ship, and I think a tilt-a-wirl) from a scene involving a model train set-up.

I believe there were a few threads on this when the trailer first came out.

I really wanted to see this movie this weekend, but apparently none of the managers of the 10,000,000 theaters around here decided to book it. Now I'm stuck with "Bend It Like Beckham"....

Well exc-u-u-u-u-se me!

You really aren't mising much, Den. It wasn't nearly as good as 'Best in Show' or 'Waiting for Guffman.' In retrospect, I would have rather wiated for it to come out on video.

p.s. That other thread didn't mention the models, did it? ;)

I didn't get into "Best in Show" as much as some others did, but "Guffman" is great.

However (and I was just having this conversation with my co-workers), as far as mockumentaries go, I think the best is "Drop Dead Gorgeous." Highly underrated.

I believe Deja Vu is called Whiplash in the movie.
