What matters most in life, eh? Hockey, donuts and beer? A slab of back bacon? And did we mention beer? At least, that's what matters most to Bob (Rick Moranis) and Doug (Dave Thomas) McKenzie when they bring the goofy lunacy of SCTV's The Great White North to the great wide movie indoors. Moranis and Thomas portray the classic Canadian beer-guzzling duo, the MacKenzie Brothers, as they try to stop a mad beer brewer from gaining control of the world. Co-starring Oscar and Golden Globe-nominee Max von Sydow (The Exorcist) and Paul Dooley (Breaking Away, Runaway Bride). Outrageous fun loosely based on Shakespeare's Hamlet.
