A Mighty Wind (Movies)

"Wha' happened?"

A Mighty Wind is Christopher Guest's mockumentary of the world of folk music. A reunion of once-famous acts brings together the New Main Street Singers, whose manager has inflated ideas of his own hilarity; the Folksmen, who disdain the current state of folk music; and Mitch & Mickey, who haven't spoken in years and who have gone their separate ways — Mickey to suburbia, and Mitch to a sanitarium. The phrase "Wha' happened?" was a catchphrase unsuccessfully promoted by the NMSS manager. Incidentally, the movie features the always hilarious Ed Begley Jr., who also plays Hearst's Dean O'Dell.
