Movie Info

John DeBello, the man who brought you The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes back in 1978, was responsible for the 1987 fantasy farce Happy Hour. The premise: a Coors-like beer manufacturer stumbles onto a secret ingredient that compels the guzzlers of America to consume its product exclusively. The complication: the magic formula has been stolen by a rival brewery. The original beermeisters send Rich Little out to steal back the formula, while the rival company dispatches Jamie Farr to prevent Little from completing his mission. Upon meeting one another, Rich and Jamie discover that they're old college chums and former student activists. Together, Little and Farr attempt to foil the mercenary machinations of both beer companies. Is Happy Hour as funny as John DeBello imagined it to be? Let us merely observe that the film's high point is a shot of a group of six-year-olds chugging beer, and that the closing image is of a pretty blonde who chastises the audience for not being smart enough to follow the plot.

Audience Reviews for Happy Hour


79% Mostly a one joke movie, but I'll drink John De Bello's brand of comedy any day. Feeling thirsty? Drink Marshall's beer!

It was 'On Demand' listed as Sour Grapes. This was pretty bad. The hot 80s girls couldn't even save it. It's about a chemist who makes a chemical that when added to beer makes it insanity addictive... After awhile everyone is drinking and even little kids are drinking it instead of milk. The premise is good, the execution is not. It's too cheesy and delivers very few laughs.
