Best of Show

Who says dogs aren't funny, and you know why. It's the people showing off their dogs that really makes it happen.

Sit back and watch the owners and handlers viewing themselves through their K-9's while they put them through their paces, which is just and extension of their personalities.

You really start caring for the great cast of characters, and they become real people right away.

The story makes it more than comedy sit-coms or a series of sketches. If you like laughing, I guarantee it's dog-gone good.

Christopher Guest, the same man who brought you This Is Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman, puts on the dog as we get a glimpse behind the scenes at the Mayflower Dog Show.

Shot with a minimalist script and a great deal of improvisation, this film recounts the trials and tribulations of making it on the canine circuit.

It's witty, insightful, and just plain fun. If this movie doesn't make you laugh, then there's something wrong with you.

Tongues and tails wag in the ruff-cut, arf-house cinema called Best in Show.

It's a take-all bow-wow comedy that pokes fun at dog owners.

This is an amusing and affectionate look at the world of top-flight dog shows. The pooches reflect their owners (up to a point). While the dogs are pampered, pedigreed, and in top form, their strange, odd-ball caretakers are a very different breed of animal.

My vote goes to the dogs.
