The ensemble is assured and adroitly gets the gags across without telegraphing punch lines.

A twisted comedy for twisted times, this movie made me happy. Go figure.

Some fairly funny stuff, but not up to par with the HBO series.

I was privy to an early test screening of this, and it was weirder and better than the final product. Even the final, watered-down version beats the hell out of most safe so-called comedies, though.

Much like how South Park: BL & U proved a brilliant expansion from its source material, Brain Candy captures the Canadian Kids at their most cleverly unglued.

A splendid showcase for their diverse, frisky talents.

Transitorily amusing and as a sophomoric display of crude humor, is funny.

It's like one long sketch that never seems to rocket off into the inspired heights of lunacy the series maintained so well.

Good characters in a crummy story don't make for particularly good time, but there are plenty of laughs to be had by all scattered throughout the film.

There are some very funny bits, but they're interspersed with long stretches of exposition that drag the whole thing down, down, down.

It was supposed to be a comedy, but it just wasn't funny. End of story.

A quintet of Canadian TV comedians hit the cinema screen with a splat.

The Kids stopped doing their show two years ago. It's too bad that this may be what they're remembered for.
