Canadian Bacon Movie Review Summary

Actors: John Candy, Alan Alda

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Canadian Bacon

The President of the United States attempts to find an enemy to start a cold war with. He then decide to go against the hockey-playing, beer-drinking Canadians. Sheriff Bud Boomer takes it too seriously, and actaully makes America hate Canada. When the country above kidnaps Boomer's girlfriend, he goes after them, switching off the electricity along the way. The performances make up the okay script, and poor direction. MASH alumni Alan Alda does impressive work as the President, while John Candy is really good in his last performance. The actor who steals the show, though, is Dan Aykroyd as a highway patrolman who asks Boomer to put the anti-Canadian graffiti on his lorry in both English and French. If you're curious about this film, just see the beginning, and then press stop near the end.
