Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Whatever the reason, [Guest's] films have always developed cult followings once they hit video. Hopefully, Best in Show will buck that trend and be successful in theaters, too. – Paul Clinton (,, Mar 15, 2001

Fresh: Guest is good at revealing his characters bit by bit. – Christy Lemire, Associated Press, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: It creates one comic character for the ages: Guffman veteran Fred Willard as addled, veteran, loose-lipped, sex-obsessed sports TV commentator Buck Laughlin. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: [Fred Willard's] a one-man storm of escalating inanity, and he's hilarious. – Jay Carr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Doesn't Get Any Better!!!

It's hard to sum up this movie in terms of placing it in any one category. It's funny for sure! The characters are so well developed and have such individual depth, that you can't help but root for each of them. iTunes needs to add the rest of the Christopher Guest creations, especially "Waiting For Guffman" - another comedy gem that's equally as good as "Best In Show"!

All kinds of nuts....

"There's walnut.......peanut.......pine nut...... umm, cashew nut". Download this movie and let the genius of Chris Guest wash over you. Very close to his best work. Easily worth repeat viewing, so it's a great buy in my book.


This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I agree that you have to have a quirky sense of humor to get it. Oh and you have to be intelligent. It's not obvious. There are no fart jokes. So if you liked Joe Dirt, don't get this movie.
