Blaine, Missouri, may be small, but Corky St. Clair always dreams big. Determined to get back to the lights of Broadway, he's created Red, White and Blaine, a musical celebration of the burg's 150th anniversary. This Is Spinal Tap and Best in Show co-creator Christopher Guest plays Corky in this acclaimed comedy. Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Parker Posey, Fred Willard and Bob Balaban co-star as stagestruck townfolk who pin their hopes of being discovered on Corky's hilariously hapless theatre production... and on reports that big-time talent scout Mort Guffman will be in the audience.
A tale of Blaine.

While nowhere near as good as ‘A Mighty Wind’ or ‘Best In Show’, this is one of Christopher Guest’s better films, mainly down to a smart storyline and an excellent ensemble cast. Much like other Guest’s films the real comedy is in the sheer attention to detail. The songs are excellent and like previous Guest films there is a certain sweetness within the story and the characters.
