MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Weirdos

Underwhelming crowd-pleaser with a handful of nice touches, like the encounter with the Canadian police officer - basically the opposite of anything one experiences in the US. The political subtext - i.e. the hypocrisy of the American Bicentennial celebrations on TV, with scenes of white men dressed as Native Americans - is well handled. The key message - better a weirdo than a yankee - is very relevant today.
