Overview

The Kids in the Hall breaks into feature films with Brain Candy, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. English subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. This is a great disc for fans of the troupe, but Paramount could have done more with this cult title.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Kids in the Hall are so very reminiscent of Monty Python. First of all, there just aren't that many comedy troupes -- especially funny ones. They also have the same snappy pacing (though not as fast as the Brits), which never leaves one hanging for very long onto a stale joke. But, of course, the most important similarities are the offbeat, incisive humor and the almost total lack of humility. Like Python's own forays into cinema, Brain Candy is a hit and miss affair. It's the nature of the comedy beast borne from sketches, and this movie has a disjointed, sketchy feel to it. It's not as thin as your average Saturday Night Live vehicle, and it's more focused than Monty Python's Meaning of Life, but it's not as funny or important as Monty Python and the Holy Grail or The Life of Brian. It's probably destined to be a cult film, especially since the Kids reformed for this effort and have no plans to work together again.

Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

The Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy is an amazing two hour movie for any true Kids in the Hall fan. Granted, Dave Foley's not in the film as much as the others, but he was busy during production. They're all amazing in this film and proves that they all can act with a script. The troupe really gives it their all as they write their own movie. We can only hope for more movies to come in later years.
