Canadian Bacon Movie
The movie, Canadian Bacon is about a president of the united states who decided to take his country into a cold war with Canada. The reason he decides to do this is because he has come to the realization that his popularity with his people reducing and the international community seems to be forgetting about America. When he is advised to look for ways in which his country can go back to being relevant, he chooses war as the best way of achieving this. However, he soon comes to the realization that America no longer has enemies and as such, they have to find ways of creating one. This comes to them when they hear about a brawl that takes place at a hockey game where there is a squabble between an American and a Canadian over the fact that the former has insulted Canadian beer. In order for Canada to be agitated enough to join in the war, a group of Americans gathered and it is suggested that they find ways of angering Canadians. This can be done by doing one thing that Canadians hate most, which is littering. Soon, something that began as a small and almost insignificant starts to show the potential of escalating into something serious. Nationals belonging to each of the countries that are in war and are living in diaspora soon start to face the negativity. The movie uses a lot of humor in a bid to make the movie have less seriousness since it is talking about issues that are likely to be sensitive to the audience. A review of the movie that is done in the New York Times states that although the premise of the movie was a clever one, there is too much humor that is included in it that threatens the real plot from being shown to the audience.
