Hello readers and welcome back from your holiday weekend! I hope you all enjoyed your time off and find yourselves back to work with a fresh mind and spirit.
Unfortunately I was sick this weekend. As much as I love fall, my allergies and sinuses do not…and I contracted a nasty cold that left me in bed for a few days. As a result, I had a weekend of movie watching in my pj’s…which is one of my favorite things to do even when I’m not sick. This past weekend I decided to indulge in some classic Christopher Guest movies and absolutely had the best time.
While I have seen almost all of his films, I only own Best in Show and A Mighty Wind…but in my opinion, those are the best ones (followed closely by Waiting for Guffman). If you’ve never seen Best in Show, I highly suggest you do…especially if you’re a dog fan. This movie documents the crazy dogs and dog owners behind “The Mayflower Dog Show”, a play on “The American Kennel Club Dog Show” or others of that nature. Not only is this movie chock full of adorable K-9’s, but the cast is equally as lovable. How can you not have a good time with Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, and Jane Lynch (yes, Jane Lynch of Glee fame. She wasn’t always Sue Sylvester and shouldn’t knock the Glee club too much…considering she’s quite the singer herself…as seen in A Mighty Wind)?
If you’ve never had the joy of watching a Christopher Guest movie, you’re in for a treat. I suggest starting with Best in Show…I really think it’s the best of his bunch. A Mighty Wind is a movie about three folk music groups and features the same cast from Best in Show. This is improv at its best.
