An average movie

I’m not sure where I have seen this flick maybe I saw it in the movie theater at the time but since it received some very solid reviews, I had some rather high expectations. The point is that , this movie, like all Christoher Guest's mockumentaries, enjoy a rather impressive cult following but, somehow, it didn’t really connect with it. I mean, I can see where they wanted to go with their sati... read more

Description: Christopher Guest, the man behind Waiting for Guffman, turns his comic eye on another little world that takes itself a bit too seriously: the world of competitive dog shows. Best in Show follows a clutch of dog owners as they prepare and preen their dogs to win a national competition. They include the yuppie pair (Parker Posey and Mic ... (more)

The Good & The Bad - Movies Watched In 2014 (402 movies items)

"Made by the people behind the Spinal Tap movie, this is a mockumentary revolving around the owners and dogs appearing in a dog show (the US equivalent to Crufts). The first half of the movie mostly consists of interviews with the characters about them and their dogs, while the second half concentrates more on the travel to and the actual dog show. The movie is not always made credible as a mockumentary because of its way of filming, editing and overall story-telling, so the movie is more stuck s"

"I watched this mostly for Parker Posey, without even seeing the trailer.. and it turned out that was a mistake. This movie was horrendous, and most of the jokes either weren't for me, or were simply unfunny. Parker, the commentator, and Eugene Levy make it somewhat bearable, but.. ugh."

"The quirky views and mockumentary interviews with neurotic dog owners, trainers, and pet psychologists - and the national dog show itself, the Mayflower Kennel Club's annual competition, featuring the comments by the two emcees, comical TV commentator Buck Laughlin (Fred Willard) and co-host Trevor Beckwith (Jim Piddock): ("And it's sad to think, when you look at how beautiful these dogs are, and to think that in some countries, these dogs are eaten", and "Look at Scott! He is prancing along wit"

"First viewing - Aug. 28th Amusing, but nothing I fell in love with. There are a few funny moments, but I found it mostly predictable which didn't help. Also, Fred Willard highly annoyed me & even though that seems to be the point of his character I only chuckled once at something he said. The rest of the time I wished he'd shut up or his role had been given to someone else. Ah, and at this point I'm pretty tired of Jane Lynch's complete lack of range as an "actress"."
