A Mighty Wind. B-


'A Mighty Wind' is Christopher Guest's mockumentary of folk music, and as his other comedies, 'For Your Consideration,' 'Waiting For Guffman,' and 'Best in Show,' this one keeps the laughs steady and the jokes creatively funny, though unfortunately I didn't laugh as much as I had hoped. The plot is simple: three different sets of musicians prepare for a night of music in New York to commemorate the death of an influential folk music producer. The funniest group are a trio of middle aged musicians know as 'The Folksmen.' In all, a good, clever comedy that likely won't disappoint.
