The hilarious tale of a pharmaceutical firm’s rise and fall after executives pressure a scientist (McDonald) to release a hastily tested antidepressant. The drug makes people remember their happiest moments, but has some rather unfortunate and unintended side effects!
The film stars and was written by The Kids in the Hall, one of Canada’s best loved and most internationally acclaimed comedy troupes. Made on the heels of their successful five-season TV show, Brain Candy is an uproarious social satire of both Big Business and modern science.
An off-beat, oddball combination of cerebral humour and belly laughs, Brain Candy is sure to delight any Kids in the Hall fan.
"Canada's "Kids" produced the darkest comedy of the 90s. Criminally underrated and brilliant." —Mark
