I liked "Best In Show" but I'm not sure we needed this
27 December 2017 | by cliftonofunSee all my reviews

I really liked "Best In Show"...but I'm not sure that it needed to be re-made with mascots. There are some fun moments and performances here, but it feels less real and less sympathetic to the characters. Guest brought the same sensibility, but not as much heart.
