  It lacks the belly laughs of his dog-fancier mockumentary "Best in Show" and his small-town theater take-off "Waiting for Guffman," but "A Mighty Wind" is another comic gem from director Christopher Guest. As "A Mighty Wind" blows, Guest and the usual suspects in his de facto repertory company gently lampoon the earnest folk-music movement of the '60s and its survivors. Although the aging folkies who populate the film may be foolish and self-important, it's obvious that Guest and co-screenwriter Eugene Levy have much affection for the characters. "A Mighty Wind," with behind-the-scenes farce, fake "archival" footage and songs that echo the folk era, is inaugurated by the death of a (fictional) folk-music maven, whose son (Bob Balaban) decides to organize a concert tribute to his father. The heir convinces three has-been acts — the Folksmen (Guest, Harry Shearer, Michael McKean), Mitch & Mickey (Levy, Catherine O'Hara) and the New Main Street Singers (John Michael Higgins, Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, etc.) — to come together for a televised special from New York's Town Hall. With scene-stealer Fred Willard as the New Main Street Singers' clueless manager.
