When they are done right it's glorious, when not....well let's not discuss that.

Mine are This is Spinal Tap, Best in Show and A Mighty Wind.

What are your favorite mockumentaries?

Best recent one is by far 'what we do in the shadows'

Vampires, werewolves and New Zealand humor just works so well. So far it's my comedy of the year.

An old favorite of mine is Norwegian film 'Get Ready to be Boysvoiced' which is about a European Boy Band. The songs are great though it certainly doesn't have the polish of similar films like Spinal tap. Still a fun watch and free on YouTube!

Funny, when I saw this thread my thought was, "I'm going to tell them about WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS."

Also, Guy Maddin's MY WINNIPEG, though it's a special case and won't appeal to everyone. You have to have a very strange sense of humor to get the joke.

SPINAL TAP and BORAT are probably the best.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

Not a movie, but Comic Strip presents....... Was a show here in the UK and two episodes were Bad News and More Bad news, following a metal band on tour. It starred the brilliant Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson (Bottom & Young Ones). If you are a fan of Spinal Tap (of which it pre-dates) then you will love this.

I also really enjoyed Man Bites Dog. It's nasty but engaging.

In addition to the ones mentioned above, I think WAITING FOR GUFFMAN is a hilarious look at a small-town theater group.

agreed. chris guest is absolutely hilarious in this. how did he get so gay?!

A Mighty Wind is awesome too, probably the best one that ensemble did imo.


The Rutles - All You Need Is Cash is pretty good.

Borat and Bruno were both great but I don't really see them as mockumentaries because real people were involved/pranked

TV wise the original uk version of The Office. couldn't get into the US version, too cosy and 'wacky' for my taste, original version is harsh!

Most of the news, does it count? Nahh.. it is not well done.

This one is good though... Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job?

I would have said INCIDENT AT LOCH NESS, but after this week DIGGING UP THE MARROW gets top slot!

One of my favourites is an Australian production that involved a government conspiracy, the atomic bomb, quantum physics and the disappearance of some people.  It was called The Einstein (something), either Conspiracy or Factor.  It screened on ABC TV in the early 90's, on April Fools Day.  I wish I could see it again, it was promoted as a real doco by the ABC.

edited to add:

Thanks to the power of the internet, I've just discovered that it was called The Einstein Codes, but was also broadcast under the name The Fifth Force.  It was produced by Channel 7, not ABC as I thought, and was screened in 1993.

Peter Jackson made a mockmentary called Forgotten Silver about a pioneer filmmaker who used colour film and sound before any of these were ever invented.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
