Other mistake: Soon after Dan Ackroyd makes John Candy translate all the phrases spray-painted on the van into French, you can see them driving on the road and all the spray-paint has gone. Then later in the film it reappears and stays for the rest of the film.
Visible crew/equipment: When the presidential procession is going down a street in the very beginning, on one of the black cars you can see the reflection of the vehicle with the camera crew shooting the movie.
Trivia: This was John Candy's last film released after his death. Candy died during filming of "Wagons East" but had already finished filming "Canadian Bacon." "Canadian Bacon" sat on the shelf for two years while Michael Moore struggled to get the film distributed once production wrapped up.
Kabral: The black guy always dies. Think about it, man. Unforgiven. Alien. Rocky IV. The Shining.
Roy: Star Trek II. Forrest Gump. Witness.
Bud: Annie Hall. Not Annie Hall.
Roy: No, Night of the Living Dead.
Bud: That's the one!
Kabral: And what about that brother in Jurassic Park, man?
Bud: There were two black guys who died in that one. That was a twofer. You must be really pissed off at that one.
Question: Why does Michael Moore give special thanks to Ken Starr in the credits? Did they have a good relationship in the 90's? From what I know of Moore, it would seem that Starr would be a guy he blames and hates. Yet the special thanks doesn't seem to be sarcastic since everyone else listed seemed to deserve the thanks.
