Critic Reviews for Being Canadian

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (6)

  • Being Canadian reifies stereotypes under the guise of deconstructing them, and panders to the pernicious idea of celebrity authority (with a few experts and plucked-from-the-crowd civilians sprinkled in for good measure).

    January 2, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's all pleasant enough, but the film, ultimately more of a checklist than an in-depth analysis, never really shines any fresh light on Canada's identity crisis or gets to the source of all those preconceived notions.

    September 17, 2015 | Full Review…
  • [A] good-natured documentary.

    May 7, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Being Canadian is more of a pandering stunt than a proper documentary, filled with easy jokes and semi-comical historical observations, but not much in the way of actual insight.

    December 18, 2015 | Rating: 2/5
  • Another shallow, easy, and small-time immersion in the sort of nationalistic navel-gazing most people outgrew years ago.

    November 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Like our good neighbor to the north, this first-person documentary is genial, amusing and a little bit dull.
