5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 24 Sep 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really funny film based around the idea of a pill to make sadness go away. The ultimate Anti-Depressent.
The DVD quality is crisp and clear, but it is lacking in Bonus Content. But the film more than makes up for it. These are the best comedians in the business!

5.0 out of 5 stars Monty Python on xanex 6 Aug 2002
By T. A. Wauldron - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dear readers, if you have never seen the Kids In The Hall series, you will not understand the nuances and brilliance of Brain Candy. If you have, you will feel like you have discovered the Holy Grail.
Synopsis: researchers discover a pill to make everybody happy, and suffer the consequences. The great part, the Kids play all the parts, and there are little skits within the big picture.
If you are expecting slapstick, forget it, this is sophisticated humor. The absurd rules. THIS is what the Kids are best at, and this is the best I have seen. From Canadian police trampled by people fleeing a public rest room, to catatonic test subjects, this film rocks. Kudos to Dave Foley, who made it big with NewsRadio (man do I hope they release that series on DVD). He plays the stright man the whole way through, and actually gets the meatiest parts. The rest wear dresses, but look pretty good....
If you are a Welcome to Woop Woop fan, or a Monty Python fan, if you can find this movie, BUY IT!! This is a watch and watch again movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most Well-Written and Talented Movie I've Ever Seen! 5 Feb 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Like many of the past reviews have said, it takes a certain mindset to enjoy this movie, but once you do get into it, you'll realize that it is one of the most well-written movies released in a very long time. Even though some Kids in the Hall fans were unimpressed with this movie, to really examine it and look at the making of this movie, you can't deny that these guys have serious talent! To play over 40 different characters, and do it well, and write it to where one character played by someone doesn't interact with another character played by the same person took a lot of hard work and creativity. What I like most about this movie are the little things within it that you wouldn't pick up the first couple times. I've seen it at least 30 times ande every time, I pick up something new I never noticed before. The scuba diver, the posters in the background, certain connections that are spanned apart from each other, etc. The way they portray certain characters, like the CEO and his team members, are so realistic that you have to laugh at it even more because you know there's people just like that. They make fun of the culture by playing it realistic. In summary, it is a movie to be watched many times on end. It is a very dialogue and character based movie ("I'm your nightmare, Mister!", "You're not getting dollar one, you ugly man!")...okay you just have to see the movie. But the more you are interested in psychology, the more you will enjoy this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie. 2 July 2004
By R. Nevitt - Published on
To quote a New York Times reviewer:
"I was privy to an early test screening of this, and it was weirder and better than the final product. Even the final, watered-down version beats the hell out of most safe so-called comedies, though."
I had a friend that also got to see the "original ending" which he claims was among the funniest things he had ever seen in his life. I personally thought the movie was great, and have enjoyed it a couple of times on DVD. I really think though that the DVD could have benefited from having the alternate ending and aditional footage added back in.
As I understand it though, Paramount executives don't care about anything but patting each other on the back while their studio slips into oblivion. They released the DVD of Clue with a mono soundtrack. Look at how Paramount destroyed their most profitable cash cow "Star Trek." So the chances of us getting to see that alternate ending of Brain Candy is darn near slim to none. It really is unfortunate... it sounds fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's your happiest memory 11 Jan 2000
By The Rogue - Published on
If you see one film this year make sure you want to see that film, and if you don't than this could also be a good choice. With more tag lines than austin powers it's a tragidy that more people have not seen this movie. It's one of those lost film jewels for me, which I have watched repeatedly ever time a friend comes over and wishes to be exposed to it's tender human conflicts and red socks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, if you like SCTV, Kids in the Hall, Monty Python, etc. 7 Feb 2006
By LMarie - Published on
This is one of my favorite all-time comedies.

If you've had a chance to see the skit comedy of "Kids in The Hall" (and it's nothing like Dave Foley's "News Radio"), this movie is above & beyond what they were able to do with the show.

If you haven't seen "Kids in The Hall", take a look for old rerun episodes on Comedy Central. It is similar to SCTV - oddball skit tv by some wildly funny Canadians. I actually find "Kids" to be funnier than Monty Python.

This movie has a plot, silly characters, and a relatively satisfying ending. It contains a few funny musical numbers, too.

The movie rarely appears on TV or cable. If you like offbeat humor, this is a movie you may enjoy seeing over & over again. This is likely a movie that you'll have strong feelings about - either you think it's terrifically silly fun, or just plain stupid. If you like goofy humor, check it out. It is much less expensive than the KITH DVDs.
