Dull and not funny, the dogs were the only interesting part in this one

5/5 for witty/goofy comedy!

I thought this would be as good as This is Spinal Tap, and I was dead wrong. This movie is as much fun as watching a dog show, especially when you have no interest in dog shows. The only redeeming grace that stopped this from being a total train wreck was Fred Willard and Parker Posey. Everything else was so tedious.

Intelligent, witty, faux-documentary that is well written, well acted, and does a fantastic job of developing a multitude of characters. Best mocumentary since This Is Spinal Tap.
Grade = 8.5/10

A hilarious movie with a great script and ensemble. Posey and Hitchcock steal the show though. O'Hara, Willard, Levy, Coolidge, Lynch, and Guest are outstanding as well

Dog shows are ripe for comedic picking, and Guest and his crew of cohorts leave no stone unturned in what is possibly their most accessible and widely hilarious mockumentary. Special recognition to Fred Willard for stealing the show as the dim-witted and over-excited announcer.

This is the favorite Christopher Guest film of many fans and I can see why. Everyone in the troupe is in tip-top form, although none of that matters a whole lot because Fred Willard takes this movie over in a manner I don't think I've ever seen in a comedy. I was lukewarm on the film until this happened; by the end I loved it. There should be a large exhibit in a museum of comedy dedicated entirely to what Fred Willard (aided excellently by Jim Piddock's long-suffering cohost) has managed to do here. Willard has embodied the relentlessly asinine in a way which becomes some sort of historic human accomplishment, like the Mona Lisa or Michelangelo's David of stupidity. It is really beyond sufficient description. I doubt there has ever been anything like it in movie history, and if there ever is again, it will be done by Fred Willard.

NOT a funny movie. moronic and slow

This is one Quirky riot of a mockumentary about a gaggle of fanatical dog show participants and their pedigreed poches.Just a great laugh a minute satire that can be viewed 100 times without becoming dog eared.

Ok movie but it is about a dog show. Not much there

as a dog breeder who also goes to dog shows, this is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. We were laughing so hard in the parking lot after the movie that we could not drive for over 1/2 an hour. The people with the Boarder Terriers were classic and I always wanted to subscribe to "Amercian Bitch Magazine".

Dei umas risadas, mas o filme é bem esquisito. Em geral, não curti

The most brilliant offering from Christopher Guest, with a fantastically versatile and talented troupe of improv performers. True genius at work in this film, at every level.

A forgotten gem. A mockumentary poking fun at the various dog shows and the people involved in them. Follows a few families on their journey before and during the competition. Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest and Fred Willard shine here, but the cast is really good. Didn't think I would like this one much, but it was really good.

A mildly amusing comedy that focuses on being quirky rather than being funny.

Funny in a calm sort of way.

Highly recommended for all fans of improvised comedy or comedy in general.

The satire of the Dog Show is enough to hold this lighthearted comedy up, but alas! The creators decided to also incorporate satire of character types as well! Bravo Mr. Guest, Bravo

Fred Willard provides some entertainment, but he is not enough to save a downright boring and stupid movie.
