This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

I have four pets. You know a documentary is BAD when it bores the hell out of it's targeted audience. I am an animal lover, and I couldn't even stay awake. They somehow steer focus away from anything visually interesting and make this movie about internet bugs, voting stats and poorly run contests and not one good look at a cute ugly dog. LAME!

This is a 2011 58-minute documentary that examines the many ways our society defines beauty and takes you behind the scenes at an event where
the competitors never fail to impress.
It seems to me that the ugliness of the pet is NOT really ugly to its owner.
It is a fascinating, funny and entartaining documentary.

An interesting look at the Ugliest Dog circuit, including the odd and fun personalities that take part in the competition. Also interesting discussions on what is Ugly? And the surprising discovery that medically untreated dogs were only a recent exclusion from these competitions.
