My husband actually turned me onto this movie. The first time I saw it, I was completely surprised. But, the second time I was hooked.    These actors are truly amazing. Considering they have done other movies as well, I'm mesmorized at the manner in which they can take on a new persona with each movie.    There is no picking a favorite in this movie when it comes to a person or scene - because the whole thing is just great.    If you don't …

Tell the truth! there aren't very many movies that are really worth owning. Sure, you've gotAkira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai (Shichinin No Samurai) ~ Original Theatrical Version [Import, All-region] (Dvd), but how many times are you going to watch it?     Well, this perfectly silly movie is one that you may watch so often that you start to memorize the dialog.

The effectiveness of a mockumentary depends on several factors. First, the actors must "play it straight," as if unaware that they are spoofing anyone or anything. Fred Willard (Buck Laughlin), for example, in this film or Leslie Nielsen in Airplane! or as Frank Drebin in the Naked …

It's terrific to see Christopher Guest and Michael McKean, the "fire and ice" song-writing combination of Nigel Tufnell and David St Hubbins from This is Spinal Tap, reunited, albeit as unrelated characters. Indeed, Guest's character, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of nuts and a hankering to learn more ventriloquism, isn't a million miles removed from the great Tap Guitarist. I don't think Best In Show quite attains Spinal Tap's giddy heights, but it will give you plenty of belly laughs, and there …
