IMDB’S RATING FOR THIS IS SPINAL TAP GOES TO ELEVEN
I’d like to think that our internet-savvy readers are already familiar with The Internet Movie Database, more commonly referred to as IMDB. On the off-chance you’re somehow not, though — it’s just a site where you can enter the title of any movie or television show ever, and it will give you pretty much all the information available on the movie, from the entire cast and crew (right to the third key grip) to box office history to trivia and quotes to the movie’s quality rating, as determined by the readers of IMDB. And, generally speaking, this rating is based on a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest. For example, note the rating for the 1996 classic, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America:
Well — and I think by now you see where this is going, but still — guess what the rating is for This is Spinal Tap?
So three cheers for IMDB for having a sense of humor, even as they allow idiots all over the web to besmirch Beavis and Butt-Head Do America‘s previously flawless reputation. Nigel Tufnel would approve!
