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 that’s too close for comfort!
