Guest seems to know just how far he can stretch reality without losing the crucial texture of verisimilitude. This is a comedy even cat lovers might adore.

The film-makers have hung their satire on a slender and oh so familiar conceit - that dog-show types project their ambitions and their vanities onto their mutts.

The first 45 minutes are amusing enough, but the movie ascends to another level with the second-half introduction of Fred Willard as commentator Buck Laughlin.

Hilarious and offbeat, but humor is pretty grownup.

The real pedigree doesn't even arrive until halfway through. Fred Willard's unforgettable dim-bulb commentator takes aim at TV's injection of "sports drama" into competitions where, quite simply, there is none. (Here's looking at you, Joe Garagiola.)

This fringe milieu is inhabited with all sorts of eccentric characters to wring laughs from.

Guest e sua trupe sempre conseguem divertir com seus mockumentaries, mas este longa, ainda que pontualmente brilhante, encontra-se entre os mais frgeis da filmografia atpica do cineasta.

...it's always a pleasure to watch this ensemble of gifted talents do what they do best -- be spontaneous and funny and surprising. What we get is a master-class demonstration of the distinction between comic actors and comedians who try to act.

The movie gets its laughs by letting its people talk and reveal themselves unconsciously.

... an excellent example of how funny a movie can be by observing human nature honestly, at its brilliant best and miserable worst.

Call it a mockumentary or a dogumentary, Christopher Guest's latest spoof is a very funny, improvised comedy about the world of dog shows.

Doesn't live up to its pedigree.
