Washington (ANI): Renowned documentary-maker Michael Moore believes that the reason his films do better in Canada than the US is because Americans don't get his humour. Making an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival, Moore commended Canada's collective sense of humour, while promoting his latest project 'Captain Mike Across America'.
"Canadians, you're wired in a different way than we are humour-wise. You understand and appreciate irony and satire..." Contactmusic.com quoted him, as saying. "Americans, we take things maybe a little bit too literally and don't always get it," he added. Moore also described his film "Sicko" as "a comedy about 45 million people with no health care in the richest country on earth."
