  • The Kids in the Hall, Canada's celebrated sketch comedy troupe, make their feature film debut playing more than 40 roles between them in this slapstick tale of a deranged scientist in the employ of Roritor Pharmaceuticals who develops Gleemonex, a pill designed to make the taker happy all the time. As the pill begins to cut across every social and economic boundary, virtually eliminating depression, it is discovered that Gleemonex has a very serious side effect: it may put its users into a coma. BRAIN CANDY uses this story as a loose springboard to allow the Kids to indulge in their trademark mayhem, with each member diving into both male and female roles with equal aplomb.
