I’d heard about Christopher Guest, so when For Your Consideration came out three years ago I thought I’d better try him. I was so underwhelmed I didn’t approach his movies again until I got bored this year, decided to give him another shot, and watched Best in Show and A Mighty Wind. I repeat: Where have I BEEN?!?!?!?! Clearly, For Your Consideration was the exception, because Best in Show and A Mighty Wind are absolutely hysterical and tickle all my funny bones. I still need to see Waiting for Guffman, but in the meantime here’s a clip from Best in Show, about a dog show, with the fabulous Parker Posey as an uber-fanatic dog owner.
