this is a mockumentary folks, not a serious film about real dogs in a real dog show. disappointing to see negative comments left below by reviewers who actually thought that it was a documentary (or should i say dogumentary).

any way to remove these comments? as this movie is one of the best improvisational comedies ever made and deserves some respect.

woof!

Oh, this was so boring. We had hoped it would be about the dogs, when in actuality, it started of with what the producers considered to be a humorous look at dysfunctional humans. We didn't last long before we rolled our eyes and shut it off.

The best movie ever shot in the Lower Mainland. If only that were a higher compliment. I come here puzzled. Why does this movie have, at this date, 1 3/4 stars? Please tell us, why is this a bad movie? Be forewarned, though: if it's because you think the movie doesn't have enough dogs in it, you are lame.

We venture into the esoteric world of canine conformation or "dog show" & the canine animals are fine, but their handlers are introduced as anything from eccentric to completely neurotic. Guest's films are generally known to be based largely on improvisational acting and comedy, so it's hard to imagine the film crew remaining very sane during the filming because the situations are ridiculous, hilarious, and unique. I have a much greater respect for improv than the regular repetition of lines until repeated "correctly" (worse: film and TV production are notorious for the line: "that was perfect, now do it again"). This is the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" of dog shows. Vancouverites will appreciate & recognize some of the surroundings, if they can pay attention long enough between laughs.

This mockumentary-style movie was charming and funny, with a great cast.

The material seemed promising, but I found this improv comedy only mildly amusing. Maybe working to develop a funny script would have been a better way to go.

Very humorous parody of people obsessed with dog competitions. While it may seem a ridiculous premise, the movie is hilarious. A variety of obsessive stereotypes are satirized. I borrowed this film for the third time and my eyes still teared up from laughing so much because of (a) The contestant who kept bumping in to ex-boyfriends (b) The couple that met in Starbucks (c) Busy Bee, WTF happened to that Busy Bee???

Hilarious parody of dog show people; if you have ever been involved with them you will see the humor immediately. A bit over the top but that's the idea here.

Scary funny! (That poor innocent Weimeraner.)

Meg Swan: We met at Starbucks. Not at the same Starbucks but we saw each other at different Starbucks across the street from each other.
