Something is rotten at the Elsinore Brewery. Bob and Doug Mackenzie (as seen on SCTV) help the brewery founder's daughter Pam regain the brewery founded by her recently-deceased father. But to do so, they must confront the suspicious brew master and two teams of vicious hockey players. Written by

Lynne Griffin's character Pam Elsinore must have just turned 18 to inherit the company as outlined by the lawyer. But her birth date on the video game is in 1959. Her character would have been 23 when the movie was filmed in 1982. Lynne Griffin was actually 30 at the time. See more »
When the van goes underwater, and LaRose jumps in to free Pam, you can see her swimming up to the top without shoes. When the rescuers pull her from the water, she has her shoes on. See more »
In the original theatrical release, instead of the usual roaring lion in MGM's studio logo, the lion is drunk and belches. Then the camera pans to the side to reveal that the McKenzie Brothers (the main characters in this movie) are playing with the lion's tail. When the lion gets angry, they leave to another room to introduce the movie. See more »
I don't see how anyone can dislike this movie. It is laugh out loud fun from beginning to end and there is not a single scene that is not hilarious. This team sure shows what a positive affect alcohol has on Canadian comedians. I would have to say this is the best movie ever made and I give it an A++ for effort, hilarity, and genius, eh. The reason it is so great is that it is incomparable to any other movie of its comedy genre. It is a journey into the world of two brothers who have never been apart, and their adventures. While trying to get beer for their father, they stumble upon Elsinore Brewery, and get jobs checking for rodents in the bottles. While there, they discover some strange things are happening at the brewery. It is a must see for all ages.
