A Canadian comedy classic, Strange Brew follows lovable hosers Bob and Doug Mackenzie (Moranis and Thomas, respectively) on an epic adventure f illed with beer, doughnuts and hockey (not necessarily in that order). When her father dies suddenly, Pam (Griff in) is orphaned, and control of her family’s brewery threatens to fall into the hands of the conniving Brewmeister Smith (von Sydow).
In stumble Bob and Doug, who land jobs as beer inspectors when their scheme involving a mouse in a bottle impresses the brewery brass. Hilarity ensues as the boys attempt to foil the Brewmeister’s sinister plot to take over the world. Though the f ilm appears at first glance to be a bonehead comedy, it is a deceptively clever farce based on William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Moranis and Thomas’s work on the Emmy Award-winning SCTV television series earned them a place among the greatest comedians this country has ever produced. They also appeared in such comedy classics as Ghostbusters and The Coneheads.
