Canadian Bacon Reviews

Michael Moore once managed to make a really funny documentary (ROGER AND ME) about a dying auto town, but his fiction debut, a derivative political satire, is so rigorously unfunny you'd almost think it was deliberate. President Alan Alda, his popularity slipping, tries to rekindle the Cold War but has to settle for stirring up public sentiment against the sinister Canadians, "who walk among us undetected, passing as Americans." We liked DR. STRANGELOVE, too, but we never thought we could pass off a puerile, thinly veiled remake of same as political wit.
