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.
[A] good-natured documentary.
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).
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.
Another shallow, easy, and small-time immersion in the sort of nationalistic navel-gazing most people outgrew years ago.
Like our good neighbor to the north, this first-person documentary is genial, amusing and a little bit dull.
Lightly amusing if over-familiar summary of every Canadian stereotype we know and love.
Cohen's not trying to do anything resembling a serious examination of the country, of course, but even wink-nudge examinations of identity could at least use a few new jokes.
Being Canadian is a fun and humorous examination of what it means to be Canadian, even if it's sometimes wrapped up in its own cleverness.
