Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy

"Cancer Boy kicks ass"
4 stars

Gays, drugs, rock n' roll, feline fetishes. No, it's not a National Geographic. It's the KITH movie, Brain Candy.

I remember when I was younger, I used to stay up late at night just to watch KITH. I remember I'd get in shit the next day for it, but hell, it was worth it. Dave Foley, Mark McKinney, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald and Scott Thompson are beyond a doubt fuckin' talented writer/performers. Funny too.

So when I rented BRAIN CANDY, I thought I wouldn't get in shit 'cos I'd be watching it during the day. Boy I was wrong. The subject material in this movie is so damn raunchy and controversial (i.e, a nekkid man masturbating to gay porn, monkeys masturbating to cat porn, etc), that I was laughing...
but my dad was not. Apparently he hadn't heard the word "fuck" said so many times in a row. So I got in shit.

But you know what? It was DAMN worth it.
