>As Bob and Doug McKenzie on SCTV, Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas managed to reduce the essential food groups to beer and doughnuts. In 1983 they spun off these boorish brothers from Canada into a feature film, Strange Brew, which will be shown on Saturday (May 26) at midnight on TNT. The comedy is part Gothic horror, part Mel Brooksian farce, and all moronic, but for SCTV fans, it's an essential artifact. Watching this, you'd never guess that Moranis was on his way to a very busy film career, while Thomas was about to sink from sight, surfacing only sporadically in obscure movies.
