A deleted scene featured James Belushi and Mary Charlotte Wilcox as Canadian border guards wearing beaver hats. They improvised the entire scene. Afterward, Belushi, a relative newcomer to the comedy scene, told comedy veteran Wilcox (whom he didn't recognize) "You're kind of funny" and that she should try to get into comedy. See more »

As a person who has spent half his life on each side of the 49th parallel, I was delightfully impressed with this movie. There were countless cultural statements and innuendos that were absolutely hilarious. I can certainly see how someone unfamiliar with Canadian tradition and culture might not 'get' this movie. However, if you've lived in, visited, or known someone from Canada, this movie will provide non-stop laughs. Canada was certainly slapped in the face a number of times, but the balance was fair, with the Canadians scoring a number of blows against the Americans. Definitely worth the watch if you've got ties to Canada, otherwise it may seem silly and pointless.
