A funny, underrated little gem that doesn't say much for Michael Moore as a fictional director, but does showcase his talents as a writer. The last decent John Candy film.
| Original Score: 3/5

Moore's agit-prop is mildly amusing, but far too preachy to hold water.
| Original Score: 2/5

Moore's only non-docu is a misfire, a diffuse, unfunny political satire that only John Candy's most avid fans might enjoy.

Let's leave the poking fun at Canadians to those who do it best - Canadians.

The best thing you can say about this scattershot political satire is that the late John Candy's next-to-last picture is relatively funnier and less depressing than his valedictory Wagons East.
| Original Score: 2/4
