Michael Moore again pulls another great film out of his hat. A slapstick satire on American politics, Canadian Bacon follows the president (Alan Alda) trying to win back approval ratings with the public by launching a new Cold War on Canada. Unfortunately for him, Niagara Falls Sheriff Budd Boomer, played by the always hilarious John Candy, takes matters into his own hands and leads an assault against the enemy to the north along with his deputy Honey (Rhea Perlman) and his two friends.
With a top notch cast, great direction and brilliant writing, Canadian Bacon is a must see, whether you're a Michael Moore fan or not.
A fitting tribute to John Candy, as this was the last film he completed.
