About the Movie

SCTV alum Rick Moranis ("The Little Shop of Horrors," "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids") and Dave Thomas portray the classic Canadian beer-guzzling duo, the MacKenzie Brothers, as they try to stop a mad beer brewer from gaining control of the world. Co-starring Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Max von Sydow ("The Exorcist") and Paul Dooley ("Breaking Away," "Runaway Bride"). Outrageous fun loosely based on Shakespeare's "Hamlet."

Customer Reviews

A Classic Comedy

This movie is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures. Makes no sense - but who cares. "The Power of the Force shall stop you Hosers!"

An 80's classic

This a true classic of the 80's. The search for beer has never been so serious.


The Adventures of Bob & Doug McKenzie: Strange Brew Do you like Hockey? Do you like Mister Wizard? Do you like Beer? Favorite line... Bob McKenzie: He once got our dead battery goin' by mixin' bird feces and spit, cause there's like acids in it, eh?
