Four side-splitting comedies.
Best In Show:
Christopher Guest's brilliant mockumentary, Best In Show, lampoons the bizarre and hilarious world of dog shows. Even more ridiculous than the pampered pooches on show are their deluded owners, who take the competition a bit too seriously, and some of whom even start to resemble their four-legged friends.
The Big Tease:
In The Big Tease, Glasgow hairdresser, Crawford Mackenzie, is invited to the World Freestyle Hairdressing Championship in Los Angeles. He invites a documentary crew along to film his fifteen minutes of fame, only to discover that he has been invited to watch and not to participate.
Tim Burton's sci-fi spoof, Mars Attacks!, is an affectionate, brightly-coloured homage to 1950s alien invasion movies. When a shiny silver flying saucer lands in the Nevada desert, a group of skull-faced Martians exit the gleaming craft. Although they claim to be peaceful, they promptly vaporize their welcoming committee, kicking off a bizarre high-tech war.
Spies Like Us:
In the spy adventure spoof Spies Like Us, two dopey businessmen are hired by the CIA, unaware that they’re merely providing a smokescreen for a band of real spies who are on an important mission. Soon the Russians are after the nitwits, and a potential world war hangs in the balance.
