BEING CANADIAN (Video Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Being Canadian
does not have a lot to give for a 90-minute investment of time. It performs as a slow documentary about Who’s Who in Hollywood who has Canadian roots and ties. The movie plays down being Canadian to the level of being Canadian means: one is involved either in the movie or music industry. It seems to have been produced as a low-key roast of Canadian entertainment personas.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It does not rate as good entertainment and has that same constipated feeling of ‘this is going nowhere’ that Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon’s series, The Trip, displays.
