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

A sequel to the film, entitled Home Brew, was planned for production in 1999 when financing fell through at the last minute. Co-written by Dave Thomas and Paul Flaherty, Flaherty was also going to direct, and Dan Aykroyd was on board to play the part of friend Rick Ripple. Principal photography was to begin on July 19, 1999 in Toronto. At one point, Todd McFarlane was to step in as executive producer to revive financing for the film, but never followed through.
The plot, according to a Maple Palm release, would feature Bob and Doug, now working as garbage men, being convinced by a fast talking insurance salesman (Aykroyd) to get into the microbrewing business. See more »

And I'd like to point out that these tapes have not been faked, or altered in any way. In fact they have time coding, which is very hard to fake.
For the benefit of the court would you please explain "time coding."
Well, uh... just because I don't know what it is, it doesn't mean I'm lying.

Brilliant!!! This movie actually made me LOVE Shakespeare!
I never liked Shakespeare when I was a student. I found it boring and long-winded. However, after seeing this movie I realize that the Bard was a genius, as this movie is (believe it or not) a modern re-working of HAMLET! In fact, the first time I saw the movie, I didn't even realize this. It was only the second time, I began putting things together (the name "Elsinore" for the brewery as well as the basic plot when you subtract Doug and Bob from the equation).
In fact, I would say this is far BETTER than Shakepeare. Who wants to hear "alas, poor Yorik I knew him,...." or see a crazed Ophelia when instead you can see a flying dog and maniacal hockey players? Brilliant! I only wish Doug and Bob had taken on other dull literary favorites and converted them to modern Canadian classics! A must see for all weird movie buffs.
