Following in the footsteps of Monty Python, Canadian comedy troupe Kids on the Hall makes a largely satisfying leap from TV to the big screen with this twisted tale about the creation and marketing of a drug that eliminates depression.

Saddled with the shortcoming of stretching a sketch to feature length, the ensemble manages to pull off enough bizarre silliness to maintain interest. Rated R.
