Wasn’t There Already A Spinal Tap Sequel?

NERD NOTE: The 1984 film, This Is Spinal Tap, was released to critical acclaim, but failed to find an audience until it was released on VHS release. In 2002, the movie was deemed culturally significant by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
