Canadians do not consider the term "Canuck" to be disparaging. If they did, there would not have been an aircraft flown by the RCAF called the CF-100 Canuck nor would there be an NHL Hockey team called the Vancouver Canucks.

I thought it was an emotional tribute to the First Special Service Force
I've read and researched quite a bit on the actual First Special Service Force, which this movie is based on, and found that, although it (as with most movies) does differ on occasion from the actual history, on the whole it is a moving tribute which captures the spirit of the Force. The acting was first-rate, and although the cinematography left a little to be desired I can see why it recieved high ratings among IMDB members.
