Collection of four popular film comedies.
In 'Best in Show' (2000, director Christopher Guest), it's time for the annual Mayflower Dog Show. The owners are assembling for the big competition, 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 (Christopher 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.
In 'The Big Tease' (2000, director Kevin Allen), when Glasgow's top hairdresser, Crawford Mackenzie (Craig Ferguson), is invited to the World Freestyle Hairdressing Championship in Los Angeles, he believes the title is his for the taking. Accompanied by a documentary crew to chronicle his impending triumph, Crawford is shocked to discover he has been summoned to watch, rather than compete in, the contest. There follows a desperate campaign to gain entry to the championship, which brings him into contact with Sean Connery's publicist and the hirsute David Hasselhoff.
In 'Mars Attacks!' (1996, director Tim Burton), when Martians arrive on planet Earth, American President James Dale (Jack Nicholson) is persuaded to extend the hand of friendship. One of the President's advisers, Donald Kessler (Pierce Brosnan), has been studying the aliens, and is keen to make peaceful contact. The Martians, however, have other ideas and gleefully fry their greeting party from Earth, launching an all-out attack on the planet. Special guest star Tom Jones.
Finally, in 'Spies Like Us' (1985, director John Landis), Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd star as the world's most awful spies who are dispatched on a spurious assignment to deflect attention from the real work of the secret agency. The two bungle their way into all sorts of trouble and somehow find themselves working on a real case.
