    Apparently the plot is kinda “Spinal Tap Hosts the Last Waltz”. I cannot wait to see this movie.

    Can’t wait. :hyper: A bunch of comedic talent there that needs to be reunited.

    Also would love to see a sequel to Electric Apricot. I asked Les about that possibility last Wednesday night. He said he “..was still picking pieces of xxxxxx out of his xxx from making that one”. :roflmao:

  5. I'd prefer to re-watch "The Rutles", for wit and musicality, but thank you for idea.

    Fantastic!

    Interesting premise. Their manager was played by Tony Hendra who died a few years ago in the wake of an awful family scandal. I knew him personally. He came to my wedding. Hell of a nice guy.

    While I'm always skeptical of reboots/sequels, the talent in this case is top-tier. It'll be worth it just to see Joe "Mama" Besser get his long-awaited due.

    A movie that picks fun at elderly rockers should be great! There's plenty of material still touring! :roflmao:

  14. They need to somehow tie it in with Top Gun Maverick ... like, reprise the scene at the Air Force base, but have it at a Navy base with Tom Cruise.
