Nerdy Dr. Chris Cooper (Kevin McDonald) and his research team invent a happiness pill, and his unctuous boss (Mark McKinney) at Roritor Pharmaceuticals rushes it into production, with dreadful results. The plot is equal parts THE HUDSUCKER PROXY and the

"Horror" segment of Todd Haynes's POISON, but that's beside the point. The movie's all about seeing the TV comedy troupe Kids in the Hall going through their irreverent paces, with the mixed results we've come to expect from sketch comedians in feature films. There are some very funny bits, but

they're interspersed with long stretches of exposition that drag the whole thing down, down, down. Of the Kids, Bruce McCullough and Mark McKinney come off best, though they're forced to compete with pop-goes-the-set-design decor. Wait for the videocassette.
