Favorite Scenes From A Century Of Cinema - 12

The multi-talented Christopher Guest has provided us with three decades of entertainment in the form of the "mockumentary," a genre he perfected with the help of a superb ensemble cast. Together, they have given us  gems including This is Spinal Tap (1984), Waiting For Guffman (1996), and A Mighty Wind (2003). Best in Show (2000) is a gem, as well, and it's a favorite in the OTR household. Here are two clips from the film featuring Meg and Hamilton Swan, an uber-yuppie lawyer couple and their uber-neurotic Weimaraner, Beatrice.

Beatrice competes with four other entrants and their handlers at the Mayflower Dog Show.  Fred Willard deserved an Oscar for his performance as the show announcer.  Don't miss out on the fun.
