Worst in Show Review: Documenting the World’s Ugliest Dog Contest

By Christopher Campbell | Film Reviews | March 5, 2011 | Comments ()


Worst in Show is a documentary about the World's Ugliest Dog Contest. The hour-long film takes us to Petaluma, California, for the 2010 competition of hideous canines (you've no doubt heard of Sam, the undefeated pooch who put the contest on the map). But it's not Animal Planet fluff. And the real freak show is with the owners. I'm not necessarily saying some of them are ugly -- though what they say about pets and their owners looking alike is validated here -- so much as they're just amazingly odd (but not mocked or exploited as such). Christopher Guest could not make up characters better than what you find here.
