Best in Show

Best in Show is a mockumentary along the lines of This is Spinal Tap, and Waiting For Guffman. In fact the casts all contain many of the same actors.

This time, Chris Guest focuses on the world of dogs and their owners as they prepare for The Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. The result is a wonderful film, full of subtle comedy.

Each character has his or her own quirks, and most of the gags rely heavily on these quirks. There's The Flecks from Florida, Cookie and Gerry. She keeps running into past lovers, and he's just a dork. There's Harlan Pepper, a redneck ventriloquist. And there's MANY others. But who will be Best in Show?

Aside from just loving their dogs, these people are just freaky in general. In fact, a lot of times it doesn't even really seem important that they are dog owners.

Unfortunately it's quite obvious right from the start who is going to win. Of course, as it's a comedy the plot isn't very deep, the important thing is it's FUNNY. You can watch this movie over and over, and it's still fresh and funny every time.

A good film and an outrageously funny comedy, this isn't a movie to miss.

My Rating = Three Stars
