Kids In The Hall: Brain Candy (1996)
Starring: Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald
Director: Kelly Makin
Category: Comedy
Studio: Paramount Pictures
88 mins



Ever wonder what it would be like to "have a nice day" each and every day for the rest of your life? Find the answer-and plenty of laughs-in "Brain Candy," the hysterically funny film debut from TV's acclaimed comedy troupe, Kids in the Hall. The country hits cloud nine when obsessed scientist Chris Cooper (Kevin McDonald) invents Gleemonex, a happiness drug. Soon everybody is taking the little orange pill. But Cooper gets a heavy dose of the blues when he discovers that early test subjects have slipped into comas. Can Cooper stop the people's happy habit - before it's too late? The Kids have never been more hilarious as they play over 40 wild and weird characters, including a heavy-metal god named Grivo (Bruce McCulloch); a corporate yes-man (Dave Foley); a sexually repressed husband (Scott Thompson): and a megalomaniacal pharmaceutical magnate (Mark McKinney).
