Evil Braumeister Smith (Max von Sydow) has a plan to take over the world with his new brew at the Elsinore Brewery. He's discovered an additive, that when guzzled in beer, allows the drinkers to be easily controlled and only the Great White hosers of the North, Bob and Doug McKenzie (Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas) -- with their plaid shirts, ski toques, fur-lined parkas, and addiction to beer -- can stop the dastardly plan, sober or not.
