There's also "Strange Brew" (Dave Thomas & Rick Moranis, 1983), in which
Max von Sydow was somehow persuaded to play the CEO of Elsinore Brewery
in a plot rather feebly derived from "Hamlet".

The film is rubbish, but worth seeing for the flying dog, whose name was
"Hosehead" (also amusing for anyone who finds Canadians funny).
