(April 16, 2001 – Burbank, CA) - Competitive kooks and well-bred eccentrics unleash a litter of laughs when Warner Home Video’s (WHV) “Best In Show” takes center ring on VHS and DVD on May 15. America is in love with its canine counterparts, with over 39 million U.S. households owning one; with that in mind, Independent Spirit Award and Writers’ Guild Award nominee Christopher Guest assembles a cast of wonderfully colorful characters, including Parker Posey (“Scream 3,” “You’ve Got Mail”), Catherine O’Hara (“Home Alone,” “Beetlejuice”), Eugene Levy (“American Pie,” “Down To Earth”) and Boston Society of Film Critics Award-winner for Best Supporting Actor, Fred Willard (“The Wedding Planner,” “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me”) -- for a wildly hilarious look at dog show participants and the pooches who love them. Considered to be one of the Ten Best Movies of the Year by Time, Rolling Stone, The New York Post, Good Morning America and the American Film Institute (AFI), “Best In Show” is priced for rental on VHS; the DVD is priced at $24.98 SRP. With operations in 78 international territories - more than the video division of any other studio - Warner Home Video commands the largest distribution infrastructure in the global video marketplace. WHV’s film library is the largest of any studio, offering top-quality new and vintage titles from the repertoires of Warner Bros. Pictures, Turner Entertainment Company, Castle Rock Entertainment, HBO Home Video and New Line Home Video.
