Strange Brew

7706f

It only takes about 2 seconds to let you know what type of movie you are in for as the MGM lion comes up and burps! Panning around, the MGM logo you find the lion with his tail being turned like a crack starter. Welcome to The Great White North. The SCTV spin-off, features Doug (Dave Thomas) and Bob McKenzie (Rick Moranis, Ghostbusters) in an hour and a half of pure zaniness and laughs.Who needs big budget special effects when you got a guy who can fix a car radio using bird feces and spit!

The basic plot..and yes it is very basic, the Brew master played by Max Von Sydow (Victory) plans to take over the world with special ingredients used in Elsinore beer. Of course the plan is foiled when Bob and Doug get jobs at the brewery. The key plot plot is brought to the front by a malfunctioning Boarder Patrol coin-op video game. Bob and Doug are fun characters, and of course at times are over the top, but don’t take it seriously, after all the dog’s name is Hosehead.

This movie is what it is, no brainer fun, just go along for the ride. So, like….grab a beer ‘eh and enjoy the fun.
