Canadian Bacon

Overview

In Michael Moore's political satire, the U.S. president Alan Alda decides to wage a cold war against Canada in an attempt to reverse his slipping popularity, and, as a result, he drives a small group of incensed Canadians to take matters into their own hands. Alda is the first president in years not to lead his country into war, which naturally means that his approval rating is dangerously low. The sure-fire way to boost his popularity is to start a war and demonstrate American superiority. Unfortunately, as his ...

Overview

In Michael Moore's political satire, the U.S. president Alan Alda decides to wage a cold war against Canada in an attempt to reverse his slipping popularity, and, as a result, he drives a small group of incensed Canadians to take matters into their own hands. Alda is the first president in years not to lead his country into war, which naturally means that his approval rating is dangerously low. The sure-fire way to boost his popularity is to start a war and demonstrate American superiority. Unfortunately, as his advisors point out, the U.S. has run out of enemies. That is, until Alda's National Security Advisor Stuart Smiley Kevin Pollak happens to catch a segment on the news about a brawl at a Canadian hockey game that began when local American sheriff Bud Boomer John Candy made a remark about Canadian beer. This incident gives Smiley the notion to make the public believe that Canada is their new enemy. Determined to demonstrate the mighty power of America to the Canadians, Boomer gets a group of equally angry fellow Americans together to cross the border and perform the most serious of all Canadian crimes -- littering. However, the invasion is foiled and Boomer's numerous blunders threaten to turn a fabricated war into a real one. Written, directed, and produced by Michael Moore, Canadian Bacon takes lighthearted jabs at the differences between the U.S. and Canada, while also satirizing America's obsession with its military strength. The film features John Candy in his last complete screen performance.

    The Best Canadian Flick Since Strange Brew

    Very funny moments and the only good movie that Michael Moore ever made.

    Funnnnnie!

    Rip Torn is hilarious, as is the guy with the conspiracy theory ('the metric system, for the love of Christ!') - I don't know his name. That and the insult about Canadian beer causing a ruckus - my kinda movie.

    Ya Know, Eh

    I liked this movie very much. It had humor and canucks (My Canadian Friends.) My family liked it too.

    If You Don't Surrender Pronto

    ''... then we'll level Toronto.'' Hilarious flick with piles of exagerated stereotypes. Considering the whole movie is based of the US foreign policy of perpetual war, it is reality-based enough that all the scenes are plausible.

    absolutely hilarious

    I can't stop laughing when I watch this movie, probably because I am not a US citizen, so I don't feel insulted (though I am a long-time US resident. When I first saw this movie a few years ago, I thought this was very funny and nicely exaggerated. Today, I am freigthened that much of the events in the movie are actually happening in the real world (though the bad guys aren't the Canadians).

    Reviewers should try to see a movie before they review it.

    I don't think the previous review actually saw this movie. John Candy leads a group of AMERICANS across the border into CANADA. They litter because they think that will drive the supposedly always-neat Canadians crazy.

    Canadian Bacon

    This is a hilarious movie that should be watched by anyone who has ever visited Canada, or has a Canadian relative. Non-stop laughs.
