Strange Brew (DVD)
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."]]>

I'll admit I was a little nervous getting this DVD, I loved this movie as a kid, and I was afraid it wouldn't hold up. To my complete surprise, I loved it as much or more than the first time I saw it.
Okay, full disclosure, it has a lot of little boy humor in it, fart jokes, etc. My favorite parts are still the scenes with Hosehead the magic dog, and the first scene in which he appears he growls at Bob and Doug because they try to take back the beer they put in his dog dish (they succeed by giving him a jelly donut instead).* This is not highbrow stuff. Also, a big scene is Bob drinks so much beer he pees on a fire and puts it out. Again, last warning, this is not highbrow entertainment.
That said, there is just something really endearing about these two idiot brothers and how they move through the world. They abuse and tease each other, but they also cannot bear to be separated. They get a job at a beer factory by accident (actually, they are trying to con them out of free beer), and life is good. When push comes to shove, they come through and save the day by suggesting that their dog solve the problem, and, of course, it works. :)
So I love this stupid movie, its dumb hockey scenes ("No goal! No goal! It was in the crease!") and its flying "Toronto skunk." So watch it, you knob, because my brother's a genius, he once got our dead battery goin' by mixin' bird feces and spit, and if you'd stick to your 12-point maintenance program, eh, then we wouldn't have to jump-start you like this!
Tell me that you've never wanted the get free beer, and I'll tell you, if you've never put a mouse in a bottle....you're not trying hard enough!! Plus it has Mel Blanc's voice as the father...fricken Yosemite Sam! And bugs bunny, daffy, tweetie bird, porky, fog horn....but I digress....it's a great movie, so take off hoser, eh?
