Canadian Bacon (22-Sep-1995)

Director: Michael Moore

Writer: Michael Moore

Music Composed by: Elmer Bernstein; Peter Bernstein

Producers: David Brown; Ron Rotholz; Michael Moore

Keywords: Comedy, Canada

Low opinion polls prompt the U.S. President to start a war with someone. A fight at a hockey game which escalates into a riot sets the perfect stage for a propaganda war against America's polite Northern neighbor. This hit-and-miss satire is Michael Moore's only feature film. Compare South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut (1999), which takes anti-Canada to new levels.
