I went on something of a Bill Nighy kick after the Worricker trilogy and someone recommended this.  A fun if predictable film about the trials and tribulations of reuniting the 70s-80s hair band called Strange Fruit.  It has Spinal Tap moments but, like Nighy’s later film, Blow Dry, it follows the tried and true film formula (thoroughly skewered in South Park’s “You Got F’d in the A” episode) of trying to reunite or build a team for an event or competition; inevitably one key member can’t or won’t cooperate but comes through in dramatic fashion at the end.  Watch it for the performances – a great ensemble cast.
