I love Christopher Guest's mockumentaries. He is so spot on with people. His cast is exceptional. We watched this movie yesterday on Netflix.
We scanned through what was available on cable and it was pretty sad. There wasn't even any "I guess I'll watch that" type shows. My husband has been watching some non-stop "Dinner For Schmucks" due to a lack of programming. But even that wasn't on yesterday afternoon.
So I scanned Netflix. I almost watched "Battle Royale" to see how it compared to "The Hunger Games" but it was subtitled and I didn't have the energy to read. As it was I didn't make it through "Best In Show". But not because it isn't a great movie.
My husband and I quote this movie all the time. It starts by showing us all the contestants and their owners.
We meet Hamilton and Meg Swan. They are as high strung as their dog.
Meg Swan: I didn't ask for your opinion. I asked for a toy that you don't have!
Gerry and Cookie Fleck are loving owners of Winky. But Cookie was pretty popular before she met Gerry.
Bulge: [interrupting Gerry and Cookie in the studio while they're recording] Cookie?
Cookie Fleck: Yeah?
Cookie Fleck: Yeah. Do I know you?
Bulge: Does this ring a bell?
Bulge: "I'm not wearing underwear".
Cookie Fleck: Bulge? Get outta town!
