Overview
Si-i-i-t. Sta-a-a-a-a-y. Laugh! Best in Show is "the year's funniest movie" (Lou Lumenick, New York Post). Waiting for Guffman's Christopher Guest directs and many of that film's stars (including Fred Willard as a loopy commentator) reunite for this zany look at dog show participants (and the pooches who love them). Join the fun as Mayflower Kennel Club competitors – a fly-fishing shop owner from Pine Nut, NC (Guest), Shih Tzu-doting partners (Michael McKean and John Michael Higgins), squabbling yuppies (Parker Posey and Michael Hitchcock), a dim-bulb trophy wife (Jennifer Coolidge) and her ace handler (Jane Lynch) and a married couple (Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara) who dream up ditties about terriers – vie for the top prize. It's howlarious!
