- Candian Bacon (certainly Michael Moore’s best work of fiction), starring John Candy
- So I Married an Axe Murderer / Mike Meyers
- Airplane! / Leslie Nielsen
- Chain Reaction / Keanu
- Bright Lights, Big City / Michael J. Fox (who has no Elvis in him, but does good work)

UPDATE: The NYT honours the day. Highlight from Malcolm Gladwell:
In history class, in seventh grade (or as we like to say in Canada, grade seven) we learned the story of the American Revolution…Turns out you were all a bunch of ungrateful tax cheats. And you weren’t very nice to the Loyalists. What I miss most about Canada is getting the truth about the United States.
He’s got a point there, except about the Loyalists. And that the “tax cheats” were really fighting the East India Company (think Wal-Mart with a British accent).
Also, we had Stevie Wonder last night and you didn’t. The bad news is it was the night before a National Holiday in a relatively large city and a free concert. So most of couldn’t get within five blocks of it.
