To quote the Mackenzie brothers: "this movie was made in 3-B (it's better after 3 beers)". I enjoyed it much more last night while tanked on wine than in did today in my sober attempt to review it. Seriously, what can you say about a movie that revolves around 2 guys who love beer so much, they will stop at nothing to attempt to get free beer (the mouse in the bottle, a classic), even entagling themselves in the rescue of a poodle-haired beer heiress who has been kidnapped. She really needs to be rescued from the horrible bow on the neck of her blouse and her high-waited pleated pants. But then again, they are wearing tuques and play hockey in Star War uniforms, so I'm not sure who needs the most rescuing here.
I think you have to have a Canadian passport to truly enjoy the brillance that is Strange Brew. That, or a nice case of two-four (that's 24 bottles for you non-Canadians). A bottle of wine will do in a pinch.
