Strange Brew Movie Review

Movie Review by Anthony Leong © Copyright 1997

Do you remember Bob and Doug McKenzie ("Take off, eh!", "You hoser!")? Back in 1983, Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas decided to milk the popularity of SCTV's The Great White North by making a feature film. It featured the revolutionary 3-B process (three beers and it looks okay). The story is based on Hamlet-- when you have a guy named Claude running his dead brother's Elsinore Brewery, it practically screams Hamlet. With a flying dog, mental patients playing hockey in Star Wars stormtrooper armour, and hockey player saving the day at the end of the movie, yes-- it is a silly movie, but it's a beauty way to go.
