“Best In Show!” Dog Lover’s Dream! Cult Comedy Classic!


A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To A Dog Show…

Meet one of the best ensemble casts in a comedy EVER! If you haven’t seen the film “Best In Show”, you are missing a hilarious look at the world of competitive dog shows!


“Best In Show” was directed by Christopher Guest, who also made the great ensemble comedy “Waiting For Guffman.” First, check out the trailer:


“Best In Show”!

The owners (and handlers) of five show dogs head for the legendary Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. A film crew interviews them as they prepare for the trip, arrive at Philly’s Taft Hotel, and compete.


From Florida come the Flecks: Catherine O’Hara keeps running into old lovers, while her husband Eugene Levy has, literally, “two left feet.”


Parker Posey is a high strung dog owner, while Director Guest stars as a country hunter who has a great Bloodhound to display.

Catherine O’Hara steals the movie as a woman who can’t go anywhere without running into a former lover…


And then there is her husband, Eugene Levy…

Gerry Fleck: I can’t dance, I can’t dance, I’ve got two left feet!

Cookie Fleck: I thought he was kidding.

Gerry Fleck: But I wasn’t. I was born with two left feet.


Jane Lynch stars a a professional dog trainer who gets very close with the dog’s owner, Jennifer Coolidge…

Fred Willard Best In Show

Fred Willard! That’s right, he’s always been a terrifically funny Actor, but in “Best In Show”, the Actor steals the movie with a series of one-liners that are hilarious!

Buck Laughlin: Tell me, do you know the difference between a rectal thermometer and a tongue depressor?

Nurse: Uh, no.

Buck Laughlin: Remind me never to come to you for a physical!


Fred Willard’s character Buck Laughlin was based on baseball legend Joe Garagiola, who had co-hosted the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in years past, to similar effect. Willard tosses out hilarious one-liners that have NOTHING to do with the dog show!

Buck Laughlin: Excuse me if this off the subject a little bit, but just take a guess at how much I can bench press. Come on, what do you think? Take a guess. 315 pounds, at the top of my game, maxing out at 500!

Premiere voted this movie as one of “The 50 Greatest Comedies Of All Time” in 2006.

This is a hilarious look at the people who compete in dog shows, and a great ensemble comedy!

  1. I love this movie! “We have so much in common, we both love soup and snow peas, we love the outdoors, and talking and not talking.”


    • “We met at Starbucks. Not at the same Starbucks but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other….” The mark of a classic movie are all of the lines you can quote from them….this is one! Thanks for the comment!
