Very watchable....mostly because the competitions seemed so very nice.
6 May 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Long, long ago, my wife and I showed dogs...briefly. We stopped mostly because, believe it or not, the dog show world is filled with angry, ultra-competitive people who just aren't very nice. And, the mockumentary "Best in Show" actually is pretty accurate in many ways! In light of this, I found myself really enjoying "Chicken People" because most of the folks the documentary highlights are genuinely nice and it was NOT all about winning. In particular, when one of the featured folks narrowly beat out another featured breeder, the man was congratulatory AND said his loss meant he just needed to work to breed even better birds. Now I am NOT saying every person in the film is wonderful...one of them seemed pretty odd...but in general they seemed like relatively normal folks who you couldn't help but like. Because of this, a seemingly dull topic turned out to be pretty interesting and worth seeing.
