Frequently Bought Together
Writer and director Michael Moore (Bowling For Columbine) serves up a delightfully ludicrous political send-up brimming with madcap hilarity and side-splitting slapstick! Starring legendary funnyman John Candy, as well as Rhea Perlman, Alan Alda, Kevin Pollack, Rip Torn and Steven Wright, Canadian Bacon is one funny, acidic satire!
Faced with sagging approval ratings and disgruntled arms manufacturers, the U.S. President (Alda) decides to cook up a new Cold War with Canada! And after a flood of media propaganda, Americans waste no time in patriotically burning their ice skates and swearing off maple syrup. But when bumbling U.S. sheriff Boomer (Candy) and his hair-trigger deputy Honey (Perlman) decide to take matters into their own hands and lead a pre-emptive strike, they soon find themselves embroiled in a hilarious international incident thats too close for comfort!

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.
Comedy is like smiling. You take a situation that you cannot do anything about, or an attitude that you cannot do anything about, and just laugh at it. This movie is the essence of what many people think they know about Canada. It also contains what many people snicker about politics. So let's take it to the extreme add John Candy, Rhea Perlman a few eh's, a too clean to be true environment; you have "Canadian bacon".
What makes this comedy is not the story but the one-liners and the parody on Canadian life. One of everybody's favorite, is when a truck is stopped because it has obscenities written on the side of it. The authority points out that the obscenity is written only in English and must also be written in French.
John Candy in sadly his last role plays an American sheriff who believes the propoganda that his country want to invade Canada. He spends the entire movie speaking down on Canadians and of course is one in real life, and that is the film in a nutshell, just 90 minutes of being ironic.
Alan Alda is great as the President and Rhea Perlman for Cheers fame plays Candy's sidekick- and there are cameos from Jim Belushi and Dan Ackyrod. There are plenty of scenes that are extremely funny. So, whilst not being the perfect comedy, it comes very close, gets a little disjointed in places, but Canadian Bacon is probably the best movie Michael Moore ever did.

I admit it I'm a fan of Michael Moore but he does have a way of getting his message across and he does it well in Canadian bacon with a cracking cast.Published 18 months ago by Mr A Peace
Really funny and enjoyable film. Makes some very good points, and reveals some truths I think governments would rather we did not think about too much! ;)Published 19 months ago by Tim Longson
