The World's Ugliest Dog

DVD - 2011
Average Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5.
Worst in Show
Every summer, proud dog owners bring their canine companions to Petaluma, California, to compete for a highly coveted title. No, this isn't your standard Best in Show championship; this is the contest for the World's Ugliest Dog. This fascinating documentary takes viewers behind the scenes at a contest where the competitors never fail to impress. Equally impressive is the care and devotion of their human counterparts, all of whom prove that love goes beyond skin deep. Not rated.

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.
