Canadian Bacon (1995)

1995-canadian-bacon-poster1

The U.S. President, low in the opinion polls, gets talked into raising his popularity by trying to start a cold war against Canada. (IMDb)
The classic American and Canadian stereotypes are played up to their fullest potential and elicit plenty of chuckles throughout (e.g. the gun auction; enforcement of bilingualism with the truck insults) as they’re laced with sharp American political satire (see the meeting with the Russians; hilarious anti-Canadian propaganda). The plot is unnecessarily layered though (see extra adversary Hacker and his confusing actions with the Hellstorm), coming to a goofy and unsatisfying ironic climax.
6.5/10 (Alright)
