Canadian Bacon
First screened in April 2015
Director: Michael Moore. Cast: John Candy, Rhea Perlman, Alan Alda, Kevin J. O'Connor, Bill Nunn, Kevin Pollak, Rip Torn, G.D. Spradlin, Steven Wright, Jim Belushi, Richard Council, Wallace Shawn. Screenplay: Michael Moore.

Twitter Capsule: More than diverting, less than entertaining. Smells like the joke-writers' room. Wexler gets it looking all right.

VOR:   I doubt even Moore sees this as a seminal contribution to the form, aside from its own curio value as his one annex into fiction filmmaking.
