It's Too Bad.
As a huge fan of the Kids, I was awaiting with much anticipation their first feature film. Unfortunately, it might also turn out to be their last one as well. Brain Candy has a strong idea for the plot line, but it doesn't seem like they knew how to carry it out for two hours. I was disappointed with the film because I think that they probably could have made something much smarter and funnier if they had had the right ideas and the right people letting them do. Dave Foley is practically non-existent in the movie, which was a downside for me. There are some funny moments, but watching an episode of 'Kids in the Hall' will indubitably make you laugh more. I hope however, that someday they get back together and perform again because this comedy troupe is like no other. See the movie if you are a KiTH fan, there are some good moments. If you are not a KiTH fan, don't judge the guys on this movie. Believe me, there usually a lot worse. In a good way.

Trivia

Dave Foley originally had a much larger role in the writing of the script and in the film, with more characters and scenes. But he quit the troupe in the middle of the writing, due to his dissatisfaction with the script and the internal feuds, was cast in NewsRadio (1995) and was featured in the movie due to contractual reasons. After years of denial from the five Kids, Dave Foley came clear about his involvement with "Brain Candy" in an interview with "The Onion A.V. Club" in 2004.

Drill sergeant: You go over there and Fuck 'em. We'll stay here and Masturbate. Go, go, go!


Goofs

When the two workmen roll the carpet into a tube, it is obviously lopsided, accumulating on the left hand side of the screen. In the next shot, the carpet is perfectly even.


Crazy Credits

After the credits, Mother Hurdicure is distressed over her grandson flying away with the balloons she gave him, and is queried by the boy's mother as to his whereabouts.


Alternate Versions

The Kids in the Hall originally filmed a different ending to the film where Dr. Chris Cooper (played by 'Kevin McDonald') fell into a coma and dreamed the ending. Apparently this included "an elaborate parade, complete with Coma Queens, candy-coloured floats, and a grinning mob", but unfortunately it scored poorly with test audiences. Paramount and the Kids re-evaluated the ending and agreed it lacked dramatic-weight and was "too scattered". They re-shot the ending in January.
