GUEST,Johnny in OKC Review: A Mighty Wind (167* d) RE: Review: A Mighty Wind 18 May 03


Okay, I've read the thread. So it's a send-up of the "phony" folk- music bands of the sixties? Isn't that what the Smothers Brothers were doing 30 years ago?

Maybe what's funny is that we were all taken in by the Kingston Trio and others. Was it so wrong? Look at the competition of the time.

Frankie and Annette, "I love you and you love me, we're as happy as two can be." Oggh! Porter Waggoner (I won't even go there), Elvis, and free jazz that was so far out even the players didn't know what they were doing. Give me Simon & Garfunkel any time.

At least some of these guys could sing in tune, and many of them knew more than three chords.

I guess I'll see the movie if it doesn't close before reaching Oklahoma City. On the other hand, if you guys keep going to it, they will probably make "A Might Wind - the Sequel".

What I would like to see is a parody of tv's Barney Show.
