Dogs and Christopher Guest are two of my favorite things on the planet, so when I saw Best in Show it was like the mother ship calling me home. Best things about Best in Show ? Christopher Guest naming all the nuts a la the shrimp scene in Forrest Gump; Jane Lynch and Bitch magazine; and that Beatrice the Weimaraner’s real name was “Arokat’s Echobar Take Me Dancing.” My new favorite thing about the movie? It’s showing outside in downtown St. Pete and I can bring my dogs. Hey, it’s no St. Pete Preservation’s Movies in the Park event, but those will be back soon enough. Think of this as training for October.
