Remember the McKenzie Brothers? You know, the guys who were featured on SCTV back in the late 1970's? Wait, you don't know what SCTV is? Well, click here for a quick background. The McKenzie's were a group of Canadien .... ummmm ... hillbillies who loved to drink beer and watch hockey. Certainly not your typical premise for a movie.
Well, in the early 1980's, the McKenzie's were featured in a surprisingly successful, and quite funny, movie called Strange Brew. In a nut-shell, the McKenzie's somehow find a job working for a famous brewery that is putting mind-control substances in their beer. The unlikely duo find a way to save the day, producing hilariity throughout the way.
The movie produces many funny quotable lines, phrases, and words like "Hoser," and "Hose-hound." I think it was one of the first movies that made Americans appreciate. Canada. Also, it was one of the first "adult" movies I watched in the theatres (I'm an old man). You can find out more here.
