Best In Show

Director:   Christopher Guest
Year:   2000
Language:   English
Time:   90 minutes

Christopher Guest and his troupe of improvisational comedy actors have developed a style of pseudo-documentary that gently mocks human foibles and dreams in such films as Waiting for Guffman and A Mighty Wind. This film takes a skewed look at the owners and handlers who people the world of show dog competitions as they prepare for and participate in a national show.

Rated PG-13 for language, sexual content.
