Moviegoers never caught on to its brilliance, but Brain Candy is a smart, outrageously inventive vehicle for Canada's most irreverent comedy troupe. The subtly subversive plot is about society's ongoing search for the perfect "happy drug," and the Kids inhabit a multitude of costumes and characters as they celebrate--and lament--the invention of "Gleemonex," the ultimate antidepressant, which locks users into their happiest memories... and subsequently renders them comatose. No worries for the Roritor Chemical Company; they don't care much about side effects! With rampant riffs on heavy-metal doomsayers, closeted gay husbands (resulting in Scott Thompson's hilarious coming-out musical), blissed-out grandmothers, and all varieties of corporate greed-mongers, Brain Candy is almost too hip for its own good, combining Pythonesque ingenuity with cutting social satire. As a comedic experiment it's hit-and-miss, but with the cross-dressing Kids running the show, it's likely to leave you laughing out loud. --Jeff Shannon
Okay, I was driving around last night in my sixty-two thousand dollar car. And I was trying to think of a name for the drug, then it hit me.
No a bird, it hit my windshield. When that happened, I got depressed.
Not you, Cisco!
Yeah, even me. But as soon as I got depressed, I got underpressed. 'Cause as I was cleaning the gleaming guts of that bird off my car, I thought of a name for the drug: Gleemonex. The slogan: Gleemonex makes it feel like it seventy-two degrees in your head... all... the... time!
You... are... scum! Do you hear me soldier?
Do you know what we are going to be doing today?
We are going to be doing push-ups all day, you and me, all day!
Do you think that's funny soldier?
Well, just for that, you are going to be doing those push-ups lying on your back! You are going to discover muscles, you never knew you had! Big... muscles,hard... muscles!
Ohhh yyyeeesss sir!
