Wawa Welcome America continues on Monday June 27th with the showing of one of my favorite movies, Best in Show, at the Piazza at Schmidt’s. If you haven’t seen Best In Show then you are missing out on one of Christopher Guest’s best movies. The basic gist of the story follows a cast of characters who compete in an annual dog show. The movie showing is open to all pets. Pets are welcome, as long as they are on a leash.
The owners (and handlers) of five show dogs head for the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show. A film crew interviews them as they prepare for the trip, arrive at Philly’s Taft Hotel, and compete. From Florida come the Flecks: she keeps running into old lovers. A wordless ancient in a wheelchair and his buxom trophy wife who may have a thing for the dog’s handler own the two-time defending best in show, a poodle. From the piney woods of N.C. comes a fella who wants to be a ventriloquist. High-strung DINKs feud loudly in front of their Weimaraner. Two outré gay men from Tribeca round out the profiled owners. The dog show brings out the essence of the humans. Who will be best in show? – Source: IMDB
One of my favorite movie quotes is actually from this movie and its from Buck Laughlin: Excuse me if this off the subject a little bit, but just take a guess at how much I can bench press. Come on, what do you think? Take a guess. 315 pounds, at the top of my game, maxing out at 500!
