Storyline

State of Bacon tells the kinda real but mostly fake tale of an oddball group of characters leading up to the annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. Bacon-enthusiasts, Governor Branstad, a bacon queen, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, members of PETA, and an envoy of Icelanders are not excluded from this bacon party and during the course of the film become intertwined with the organizers of the festival to show that bacon diplomacy is not dead.

User Reviews

 
It's a movie about Bacon.

Why do you even need to read this review? It's Bacon! It gets a 9 out of 10 because it was only 93 minutes long. I expected at least 100 minutes of Bacon.

The movie takes place in Des Moines, the most bacon-loving city in America, and tells the tale of the Iowa Bacon Board and the world famous Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. To the outsider it may seem easy to throw a bacon party for more than 12,000 people, but this movie proves that's not even close to true.

It takes many hours of hard work, sweat and bacon grease to pull off this pork party, and State of Bacon highlights every sizzling detail.

A must watch it you love: Bacon, Iowa, and/or America.
