G'day, eh! And welcome to Here Be Spoilers! Our topic today is, uh, a movie that challenges the sensibilities of the average moviegoing consumer by confronting them with outrageously overblown stereotypes about Canadians.
Nah, we're just messin' with ya. Sunday was Jake's birthday, and to celebrate, he chose Strange Brew for the guys to watch! In it, Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas give the most accurate portrayals of a couple of beer-swilling, hockey-loving, toque-wearing, donut-eating Canadians ever to explode across the screen. They play Bob and Doug McKenzie, a pair of dumb brothers who use a mouse that they put in a beer bottle to get more free beer from a brewery.
|Hey, Doug! They're talkin' about us, eh!|
Claud married Pam's mother, Gertrude (Jill Frappier), the day after her husband's funeral, in order to gain control of the brewery so that Smith can continue his experiments with mind control, which involves chemicals in the beer.
|And it will still taste better than Bud Ice!|
Smith and Claude formulate a plan to take Bob and Doug out of the picture by framing them for kidnapping Pam and Henry (Douglas Campbell), Pam's advisor and head of the factory. All goes well, and Bob and Doug end up going on trial and being put in the asylum, where they spend quality time together steamrolling each other (it's exactly what it sounds like) and taking turns trying out the electroshock machine.
|And, as noted previously, playing hockey, Star Wars-style.|
They choose to enlist their dog, Hosehead, to save the day, sending him flying (literally) to the celebration to stop the beer from being distributed.
|Their dog training techniques are...unconventional.|
You'll have to tune in to find out!
There's also a painfully long list of dead celebrities in The Lobby, a lot of movies Coming Soon, a twist on Larry's List, celebrity birthdays and deaths are the topic of Jake-ing Off, and there's a very long conversation about The X-files to celebrate the return of the show Inside My Head!
So grab some crullers, open up a two-four, put on your toque, and take off, eh!
