BEST IN SHOW
2000 / USA / 90 min / 35mm
Director: Christopher Guest Cast: Parker Posey, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, Michael McKean Print Source: Warner Brothers

After reinventing the mockumentary with 1996’s Waiting for Guffman, Christopher Guest and his ensemble troop of brilliant improvisational comedians proved with 2000’s Best in Show that in the previous film they’d only just begun to mine the depths of their talent. Best In Show takes the viewer on a personal journey with 5 sets of competitors at the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show: Meg (Parker Posey), who coordinates not only her outfits but also her neuroses with her husband; Gerry (Eugene Levy) and Cookie (Catherine O’Hara), a couple with two left feet and a Wilt Chamberlain-esque past, respectively; Stefan (Spinal Tap’s Michael McKean) and Scott, a gay couple who pack a fabulous wardrobe along with their prize Shih Tzu; Sherri Ann (Jennifer Coolidge), a trophy wife, whose special bond with her trainer, Christy Cummings (Glee’s Jane Lynch), deepens over the course of the show; and Harlan Pepper (Christopher Guest), who dreams of becoming a ventriloquist. Add the dog show personnel, including Lifetime Achievement Award winner Fred Willard as Buck Laughlin, a confoundingly clueless color commentator, and this is a dog show you’ll never forget!! Stephen Holden of The New York Times enthuses, “the actors improvising from a bare-bones screenplay… riff off one another like jazz musicians to create what may be the cleverest on-the-spot caricatures since the heyday of Mike Nichols and Elaine May.”
