Product description

Product Description

Box set containing three movies from director Christopher Guest. In 'Best in Show' (2000), it's time for the annual Mayflower Dog Show; the owners are assembling for the big competion, and what a bizarre bunch they are. There's yuppie couple Meg (Parker Posey) and Hamilton (Michael Hitchcock), who are both concerned that their pooch has been disturbed by seeing them having sex; there's previous winner Sherri Ann Ward (Jennifer Coolidge), owner of the poodle Rhapsody in White, who this time has hired lesbian trainer Christy Cummings (Jane Lynch) to ensure a further victory; plus there's former maneater Cookie Fleck (Catherine O'Hara), her pet Winky, and her jealous husband Gerry (Eugene Levy); and not forgetting hunter, angler and Bloodhound-fancier Harlan Pepper (Guest), a man whose passion for ventriloquism is going to land him in trouble sooner or later. The dogs are on show, the results eagerly awaited, but with characters like these, the outcome is anyone's guess. 'A Mighty Wind' (2003) is an affectionately satirical 'mockumentary' which could be described as folk music's answer to 'Spinal Tap'. Irving Steinbloom (Stuart Luce) is an influential figure in the folk music world in the late 50s and early 60s, and when he dies his son Jonathan (Bob Balaban) decides to put together a memorial concert to celebrate his life, featuring some of Steinbloom's best-loved musicians. The film focuses on the various bands, duos and trios that are reunited at the concert in New York City Town Hall for the big event, and pokes fun at the earnest self-importance of the characters and their extremely prolific musical output. Finally, in 'Waiting For Guffman' (1996), theatre director Corky St Clair (Guest), fresh from his dazzling production of 'Backdraft - The Musical', is hired to orchestrate the 150th birthday celebrations of the small town of Blaine, Missouri. Unfortunately, his potential cast - the local dentist, Keanu Reeves-wannabe Johnny (Matt Keeslar), Dairy Queen employee Libby Mae (Parker Posey) - combine star-struck ambition with pint-sized talent. However, in the grand Broadway tradition, the show must go on, no matter what cost to the dignity of those involved.
