One of the odd little "inside" jokes is the title: "Canadian Bacon" is an American term. According to the American Pork Producers Association, the name was coined to designate that style of bacon which was, many years ago, imported from Canada because such a cut was not produced in the U.S. at the time. Canadians generally call such bacon "back bacon". See more »
Just as Honey finishes disabling the Hacker Hellstorm, the camera cuts briefly to a clock that stops at "0:08" after a computer falls over and explodes. The camera cuts to the War room's countdown display, which shows the countdown stopped at "T-0:00.8", 0.72 seconds later than the Hellstorm's clock. See more »

No where neer Candy's best, but pretty funny overall.
This is not one of Candy's best movies,(his number 1 being Planes, Trains, and Automobiles), but it is a funny movie. I read some comments on this movie from Canadians, and they're way too hard on it. It does poke fun at Canada a little, but it's not that bad. John Candy is actually Canadian, as almost anyone who knows who he is knows, and he really brought it out in this movie, just like in the old SCTV skits(that show needs to get on comedy central, in the time slot next to SNL. My local cable puts it on Saturday nights at about 2 a.m. I can't believe it!) I loved some of the jokes in this movie, (though at times some of them weren't funny, and also were slow) and scenes like the campfire, the hockey game, and the part where a cop pulls them over in Canada(in which Dan Akyroyd did a cameo, he also was in a film back in '88 with John Candy called 'The Great Outdoors'). That's all great stuff and makes up for some of the bad moments in the movie. Once again, no where near Candy's best movie, or performance, but it was still good fun. 2.5 / 5 stars
