"Guest seems to know just how far he can stretch reality without losing the crucial texture of verisimilitude. This is a comedy even cat lovers might adore."

— David Ansen, Newsweek

"it's always a pleasure to watch this ensemble of gifted talents do what they do best -- be spontaneous and funny and surprising. What we get is a master-class demonstration of the distinction between comic actors and comedians who try to act."

— Mark Bourne,

"This giggle does for dog shows what ... Rob Reiner's This Is Spinal Tap did for heavy metal."

— Mike Clark, USA Today

"[Fred Willard's] a one-man storm of escalating inanity, and he's hilarious."

"It's time we crown Christopher Guest as the King of Satire."
