Yet another hilarious mockumentary from Chris Guest, who has a knack for revealing the self importance of various subcultures, in this case the participants of the Mayflower fennel dog show. Every scene is ridiculous while also coming across as believable and not forced, owing partly to the great writing. Starring the likes of Eugene Levy (Schitt's Creek, who also cowrote), Michael McKeen (Better Call Saul), and Jane Lynch.
A must see movie for anyone with pets and a sense of humor. They nailed satire perfectly. As I read reviews here though i see a lot of people didn't relate to the characters, I guess that's why I say this movie is for people who have pets that deep down they know they pamper them way too much.
As usual with Christopher Guest, the attention to detail is brilliant. The characters are all slightly odd but very, very real & Fred Willard is just amazing.
His line about his proctologist is up there with the greatest comedy quotes.
It astonishing how many good reviews there are. It feels like an episode of The Office, but without the charm, or the humor, or the emotion. It's just a movie about people going to a dog show. That's it. That's basically the entirety of the script
one of half a dozen movies that i couldn't even finish watching! It's all about a dog show and peoples who are crazy about their dogs. It's supposed to be funny and have some kind of unique comedy and i see that a lot of people liked it. It's not my taste of comedy but that's the point what one considers funny, another does not.
