The US economy is in a rut, and so is the president’s approval rating. What he needs is a good war — but the Russians aren’t interested. The president decides it would help his approval ratings if he began a cold war against Canada. Unfortunately Niagara Falls Sheriff Bud B. Boomer (John Candy) takes this all a bit too seriously. An all-star comedy cast includes Steven Wright, James Belushi, Dan Ackroyd and Wallace Shawn.
