This movie was filmed entirely in Canada. See more »
when the crew enters Ottawa it is apparently 6 days before July 1st. They are seen skating on the canal and tubing down a snow covered hill. There is no way that the canal would be frozen and a hill would be covered in snow this time of year. This shows that the visit to Ottawa must have been during the winter and not during this so called road trip that the film makers make us believe they are on. See more »
I began this movie with high hopes. I mean, with all of those comedians, how could it miss, right? Although it was sometimes moderately funny in a very predictable manner, it really fell short of tapping into what it truly means to be Canadian and what makes Canada so special. I would say that if you are looking for a movie chock full of antiquated stereotypes told from people who do not live in Canada or have not lived in Canada for years, this is the movie for you. Put another way, if the year was 1982, this movie would be perfect. Aside from a few token minorities, this movie is as white as it gets and totally NOT what being Canadian is all about. Where was the depiction of our awesome multicultural, diverse nation? So disappointing.
