SCTV alum Rick Moranis ("The Little Shop of Horrors," "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids") and Dave Thomas portray the classic Canadian beer-guzzling duo, the MacKenzie Brothers, as they try to stop a mad beer brewer from gaining control of the world. Co-starring Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Max von Sydow ("The Exorcist") and Paul Dooley ("Breaking Away," "Runaway Bride"). Outrageous fun loosely based on Shakespeare's "Hamlet." An entertaining farce about two goofy and not very bright Canucks and their adventure in saving the world from a mad brewery scientist plotting to enslave humanity with his special beer. The special effects are gloriously old-hat, positively primitive in fact, and the clothes and hairstyles are so 1980 that it almost hurts to see. Bob and Doug McKenzie are absolutely hilarious in this silly story. Mel Blanc (of the original Bugs Bunny / Looney Tunes fame) does a guest voice-over as the McKenzie parental units. I talked my teenage sons into watching this with me and at first they almost bolted out of the room due to the ancient video / audio quality (blu-ray or not, it is most definitely NOT high definition), but after a few minutes they settled down and by the middle of the movie they were laughing their butts off.
