Movie arrived in packaging as expected. Video quality was as expected for a movie of its age, but sound quality was lacking--the sound was not very loud even when the volume on the speaker was turned up to its loudest. The movie itself was quite entertaining and would best be predicated by those who have some experience or understanding of the dog show world.

Way too funny.... this cast and crew made an absolutely DOGONE funny romp through what must have been a " watch were you step" outing; shot here in Vancouver and area. If I want to wet myself I can do it anytime by rolling this film. PS; I'll think twice before getting another dog!

My husband loved this movie, so i ordered it for his enjoyment. It is barely passable from my point of view. As to the seller's rating, I cannot complain at all. Delivery was prompt and well packaged.

If you have a quirky sense of humour - this film is for you! I have watched it approximately 3-4 times over the years and it still makes me laugh! The humour definitely is not for everyone. If you like 'Napoleon Dynamite' or 'Superstar', you may enjoy this movie - it has the same kind of offbeat, non-mainstream humour. The characters created by the writers are truly unforgettable! I can watch this film again and again!

The brilliance of this fake documentary (about people who enter their dogs in the biggest dogshow of the year) lies not in racy slapstick or memorable one-liners, but in sophisticated and layered verbal wit.
Not only are pet owners, competitions, and manners satirized, but also the format of the documentary itself. Despite their antics, you wind up sympathizing with them to some extent, with the exception of the yuppie couple and the announcer. With the exception of the announcer (who is crude and ludicrous by turns) you can believe that all of these kooky characters really exist, especially if you watch enough real documentaries.
Neat piece of work overall, although some moments are more interesting than others. I'd give it a 3.5 rating if I could.

My daughter and I love this movie, have seen it several times. We are huge Christopher Guest's fans, he is hilarious. The part with Jane Lynch as the dog trainer and Christopher Guest with his hound dog talking about various nuts are my favourites. Still laughing after all this time.

There's a shallow gold-digger married to a wealthy but mute 90 year old. There's a flamboyantly perky hairdresser (a most amusing character!) who is coupled with a hairdresser. There is also the two lawyers, married, dysfunctional, and highly high-strung. Then there's the former "popular" and experienced prom queen married to the nerdy and self-conscious salesman with two left feet (literally). And finally, there's "Harlan", the ventriloquist wannabe. What do they all have in common? Besides being hysterically human and flawed, each enter their prize dogs in a "Best in Show" contest. With excellent dry humor and in the mode of a documentary, "Best in Show" displays very aptly the human condition, relationships, ambition, and quirky but spunky dog owners and how they react to life, to thier self-worth and to winning (or not winning). I loved this movie for many reasons. The acting was superb; the storyline was choppy but worked very well; and the humor was intelligent and some of the one-liners hit you 5 seconds after they're said--the most powerful form of comedy. This is not for those who like fast moving movies; it's for those who like intelligently quiet humor and can read in between the lines by taking a simple process of entering a dog show and making it into a social, psychological, and fun story. You'll enjoy it!

I always thought that comedies are usually the easiest films to write which possibly explains why we have so many. Yet, 'Best in Show' is somewhat different compared to the comedies presented to us here. Directed again by Guest was for a large part improvised according to the film's documentary and is quite different from today's standards. This story is mainly about The Mayflower Kennel Dog Show which is like the Super Bowl of dog shoes; and in documentary style this film showcases the incredibly over-the-top preparations the dog owners take part in for this show.

The film constantly cuts from interviews with these zany characters to actual interactive footage shot while on their way to the dog show. All in documentary style that a person who is uneducated about the film can easily mistake for a genuine documentary. This film contains an all-star cast that includes actors who really know how to act and that capture the essence of each scene. This film is lined with scene after scene of hilarious bits focusing upon these characters and the manner in which they handle their canines like minor deities.

Guest also takes part as one of the major characters of course and plays Harlan Pepper; a fishing-store owner who travels to the Kennel Dog Show in his Winnebago in hopes of capturing the championship. He is just one of the many developed and layered characters that is fun to watch. Other characters include Parker Posey as a sexually deprived nagging wife who becomes insane with anger after losing her dog's toy. Eugene Levy plays the part of terribly jealous husband born with two left feet to Catherine O'Hara who plays his wife who cannot stop running into men she slept with in the past.
