Editorial Reviews

Ohios annual Ferret Buckeye Bash is the largest and most popular ferret show in the country. Hundreds of top breeders, seasoned experts and ferret enthusiasts pamper and parade their pets in a quest for prizes and prestige. Though these mischievous and often quirky creatures are unlikely show animals, the competition is intense. Tension is high but the tiny competitors dont understand all the fuss; theyre too busy creating mayhem!

This was hilarious. If you enjoyed the move "Best in Show" by Christopher Guest, then you will love this actual documentary. There are no actors here, its the real thing.

This is possibly the most hilarious movie I have ever seen, besting such rivals as Reefer Madness (both versions), Monty Python anything, The Office, and Best In Show. In format and style of humor, it is most similar to Best in Show/Spinal Tap, though it makes those films seem forced and clunky. Here, the awkwardness flows freely and smoothly, made all the better by the knowledge that no one is an actor. This is truly an epic of the humor genre. For a teaser, see youtube.

This program really shows the bond ferret lovers have with their pets and it brings out the humor and playfulness that's associated with ferrets in general. As a ferret owner, I found this program to be a delight. You can tell that a lot of thought went into putting this together, right down to the "caper/heist" music in the background while the ferrets were stealing everything in sight while Mom was distracted by a phone call. It also profiles the goings on in a major ferret show. It actually prompted me to attend that show this year (in Ohio and I live in Florida) and it was as much fun as was portrayed by this program.

I greatly enjoyed this show. Having met Mark Lewis, the producer, he really did a fine job of putting together over 500 hours of taped interviews and showed ferret owners as real people. I hope he wins another Emmy for this show.

Living in Columbus I have the oportunity to go to the Ferret Buckeye Bash every year and can attest that it great show to go to. Ferret owners should consider coming and showing their pets. I for one will purchase the DVD to show support to PBS and Radio Pictures so they will continue to produce this type of program.

If you're a ferret lover, you need this video! It shows what clowns ferrets can be, and just how quirky their owners can be too! Some of it is very comical, some a tad bittersweet. There are also clips from the Ohio Buckeye Bash ferret competition, the prep work that goes into winning those ribbons, and what happens when someone gets their nose too close! :) Overall, a cute DVD for a ferret lover and would also be great for kids who are animal lovers.

This is a wonderfully produced video of the Ohio Buckeye Ferret Show. It has all the elements and emotions of such an event. Whether you're a seasoned owner who has entered your ferrets in national shows, never attended a show, or owned a pet ferret, you will appreciate and enjoy this documentary style video. The shows are fun and interesting. For ribbons and trophies, there's also varying levels of competition (depending if you're a general ferret owner, or if you are a private breeder). The judging is somewhat different, but just as in a cat or dog show, there's applause, smiles, surprises, and even tears, when the Best of Show winner is announced. This video will give a unique glimpse into the world of ferret shows, ferrets, and the humans that love and care for them.

I love watching this DVD because I'm a ferret owner and I just love seeing all the ferrets and their owners at the Buckeye Bash. The only downside is the singing segments in between scenes...I really dislike the song and the creepy way it is sung. But I can mute it during those parts!
The documentary goes into things that only ferret owners would understand, so I really like the way it shows how great of pets they are. They way it portrays the owners that show their ferrets makes them look a bit like nutcases...which I also don't like. But it is a very entertaining movie.
The only thing missing on this DVD is some special features. But overall, I'm happy I purchased it!

Calling all ferret lovers!
I VERY highly recommend the film "The Pursuit of Excellence: Ferrets", it is a funny, cute, sweet, informational, relatable documentary about ferrets. I watched it countless times when it came out in 2007 with my first ferrets ^_^
I just ordered it on amazon because I haven't seen it since my last ferrets, and I want to be able to sit down and watch it again with my new babies ❤️

It covers so many things including the loss of our previous fuzzballs :( and the happy playtime! And how when you come home, no matter how bad of a day you might be having, they can always cheer you up ^_^ I insist you all check it out. It is a joy to watch and will make you laugh, cry, swoon from the adorableness, and love your thieving weasels even more than you do now (if that's even possible).
