"Canadian Bacon" (1994)

Candy Striper at Canadan Hospital: Oh we're not doctors. We're candy stripers! Our universal health care system has determined that you don't actually need a doctor until...
Candy Striper at Canadan Hospital: ...2006!

Written and Directed by Michael Moore.
Canadian Bacon was a comedy starring John Candy, which got an abysmal 14% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
In 2007 Moore's documentary "Sicko" explained the need for a system like Canada's. "Sicko" was rated at 91%.

I do not write this to expose Moore as liar ... that has been done profusely already. I point out that we can't give the benifit of the doubt that he believes his own words. Even that's a little too much like barrelfish, but hey, it's my blog.
