Their take on the Bard is as imaginative as any other cinematic adaptation, plus a good deal funnier

No, there's nothing intelligent here -- just a couple of likable fellows trying to stop mad Brewmeister Smith (Max von Sydow) from gaining control of the world.

Just odd enough to skate by; you remember the singular tone of the film long after the gags have faded.

The plotline (derived from Hamlet) soon goes flat.

The price of a ticket could buy enough beer for an experience at least as memorable as this one.

Strange Brew, incidental and faintly funny as it may be, was the start of a legacy much longer and significant than itself.
