It's so stupid but so funny
January 11, 2017
- I've now seen this 3 times in 3 years, but this time was on the big screen with a Free screening at The Royal sponsored by NOW Magazine. It was great seeing it with a crowd, and the movie is a brisk 90mins so it's really easy to rewatch. Such a Canadian classic!

Watched this for the 2nd time in 2 years, I have always had a special place for this film as I grew-up watching it and it's so full of Canadiana. I don't feel I can review this film objectively, but i really enjoy it and find it hilarious. Max Van Sydow adds a touch of class to the proceedings and seems to be having fun. A must watch for all Canadians, but anyone can enjoy it.

A great little Canadian classic comedy that doesn't take itself too serious. Unique story with the likeable pair. The plot does fall flat and it is really stupid, but entertaining! Reminds me of Halloween 3, but silly.

Pretty stupid, but there are priceless, hilarious and unforgettable moments that allow you to overlook the shortcomings of the plot.

Starts out really great, and it has parts here and there that are good.

Love this movie! Nostalgia obviously hit me hard with this one. But give it a chance if you like beavis and butt head type comedy. Loved the premise. love the concept for the characters. wish they would have done more with them.

Very funny movie with the characters of "The Great White North" from SCTV. Quite a few memorable one liners, this movie is hilarious.

First off, this film is rated PG, not R as Flixster is saying. Secondly, classic. Totally goofy, silly & hilarious. My sisters recorded this off of cable back in '83 and I proceeded to wear it out. Thomas & Moranis are geniuses.

Undervalued 80's comedy that just is fun to watch.

Flags a bit in the second half, but overall it's an original comedy with more than its fair share of quotable lines and laughs.

If you haven't seen this movie and you are a Canadian that is old enough to remember the 80s then this movie is probably the funniest movie you've never seen. Give in to the dark side of the force you knob!

Written and directed by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, Strange Brew puts a hilarious new spin on Shakespeare's immortal classic Hamlet. When Bob and Doug McKenzie attempt to scam free beer from Elsinore brewery they're given jobs at the plant, and are used as pawns in the power struggle for control of the company between Pam Elsinore and her usurping uncle. Moranis and Thomas give great performances as Bob and Doug McKenzie, and make for a hysterical and charismatic duo. Additionally, the comedy is especial well-written; featuring some clever sketches that are full of laughs. Incredibly funny, Strange Brew is a beauty comedy, eh.
