The US economy is in a rut, and so is the president's approval rating. What we need is a good war, but the Russians aren't interested. Hey -- how about that big polite country to the north? Niagara Falls Sheriff Bud B. Boomer takes this all a bit too seriously, though.Written by

First and only (to date, September 2018) dramatic and non-documentary film of Michael Moore as a director. See more »
In the campfire scene, Boomer, Roy Boy and Kabral are discussing movies and the recurring plot element about the fact that 'the black guy dies' and they mention several examples like Jurassic Park, Unforgiven, The Dirty Dozen, Witness and Alien. The problem with those examples (although accurate in this sense) is the fact Kabral says that the black guy always dies first, and in those movies they're not the first ones to die. However, he got it right with The Shining and Forrest Gump. 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
