And, as that old, familiar saying goes - "Ugly (like beauty) is in the eyes of the beholder."

Considering what this documentary's subject was all about (a contest in search of the world's ugliest dog) - I certainly thought that this particular presentation could have been a whole lot better than it (unfortunately) turned out to be. I'm not kidding.

Yes. There certainly were some very entertaining moments in "Worst In Show", but, as things moved along, I quickly found that I just couldn't warm up to some of the irksome personalities of a number of the dog-owners who were in my face here for a good part of the time.

Generally speaking - "Worst In Show" was a fairly mediocre production, on all counts.

If this presentation had been handled more professionally (and not focused on the bickering of certain dog-owners), then, yes, I think "Worst In Show" would have been a helluva lot more enjoyable to watch, in the long run.

Anyway - See for yourself. You just might think differently than I do.
