Canadian Bacon 
More insulting than funny
1/4 stars

The President of the United States of America (Alan Alda) is doing miserable in the polls. So, on the advice of his advisors, he declares a Cold War on Canada. And the people of Niagra Falls, New York, are solidly behind the new anti-Canada stance of the country. Especially since its weapons maker, the biggest employer in town, was closing down and auctioning off its constructed weapons built for the US military to the citizens of the town at very low prices.

The cat is pretty good, and do a pretty good job with an unfunny script. John Candy, who was a Canadian, was real good at tossing what many could take as insulting stereotypical jokes. To make things worse, this was Candy's completed movie before his death ("Wagons East" being his final film, but it was completed with a body-double, as Candy died during production).

I found only one joke through the whole movie laughable. The rest I found quite insulting. This is easily the least funny movie I've seen. Actually, it's not funny at all.

The musical soundtrack has no memorable tracks. There are some fairly well-known tunes, but you won't go away humming them.

Director Michael Moore, who is best known for his political documentaries, does a barely fair job at bringing his horrible script to life.

None of the scenes are really memorable. In fact, many scenes are obvious stock footage, and they were not merged into scenes well at all. Moore had something to say, like in his documentaries, but whatever it was was completely lost to me. His agenda was completely a miss with this film.

The special effects were typical (explosions and sound effects). Nothing spectacular since it looked like, to me, like the movie was low-budget.

If you are a fan of Moore, you might like the movie. But, if you are not into politics or would like to laugh at a comedy movie, then avoid this one at all cost.
