Storyline

When a Canadian Atlantic coast fishing village is threatened with the loss of all of its fishing rights, local reverend (and mayor) Augustus Knickel finds a way to fight back. Relying on an obscure clause in an ancient treaty, he declares the village as an independent republic! He also finds a way to back up those words: by buying an abandoned Russian nuclear submarine from the most senior officer still aboard (namely, the cook.)

Possibly one of the worst films in the history of modern cinema
3 May 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having had the misfortune to sit through this entire film, I can honestly say it was a complete waste of time. While the premise of poking fun at Canadian/American relations seems to have a lot of promise as a satire, the movie ultimately fails with its weak plot and over-exaggerated characterizations. One almost gets the impression that the writer simply wiped his rear end on a piece of paper and called it a screenplay.

None of the characters in "Buried On A Sunday" are interesting, and I felt incredibly embarassed for all of the actors in this self-indulgent movie such as Paul Gross and Maury Chaykin. Such a waste of talent...but then again, perhaps they simply needed the income.

Thankfully, "Buried On A Sunday" isn't indicative of all films in Canada as there have been a number of good ones made since then (e.g. "The Sweet Hereafter", "Cube", "Lost & Delirious", "Mambo Italiano", "Ginger Snaps", "Spider"). If all films were like this one, then the future of the Canadian film industry would definitely be in jeopardy.
