Heh-heh-heh. Uh-huh-huh-huh.

This one I recommend.

Beavis and Butthead are two of the most charming and entertainingly stupid cartoon-characters I’m familiar with; no matter who you are – even Stephanie Meyer – you will look like a damn genius when compared to these two. I loved Mike Judge’s cartoons so I could not help but eventually expose myself to the movie, Beavis and Butthead Do America.

Our heroes, ladies and gentlemen.

The film begins as our two idiot-protagonists (both voiced by Judge) wake up to find out that their TV has been stolen and of course, they set out on an adventure to find a new one. They try to steal one from the school but end up breaking it, they try to watch their neighbour’s television but end up breaking it, and finally they visit a motel, hoping to watch TV there, but tough-guy Muddy (Bruce Willis) mistake them for the two hitmen he’s been waiting for, so he gives them the mission to go “do” one of his enemies, his wife Dallas (Demi Moore), as in kill her, but of course the two bright kids misinterpret his words.

Nevertheless, they fly to Vegas, where they eventually encounter Dallas, who gives them another job – which they will indeed do as long as they get to “do” her at some point, as well – the new job being to go to Washington D.C. by bus and meet her there and then go on a special mission.

Obviously, none of what I just mentioned happens without Beavis and Butthead screwing something up, ending up in the wrong place at the right time (You’ll understand if you see the movie.) or even destroying something, having absolutely no idea what kind of dangerous adventure they’re actually on; all they really want is to watch some TV.

Nothing to say now, except.... Heh-heh-heeh. Uh-huh-huh-huh.

Some people are so incredibly incompetent that you just can’t help but love them; Beavis and Butthead are fine examples of loveable morons. I also like their film; it’s really fun to watch these two bafoons walk around nonchalantly as they cause chaos everywhere and even end up wanted by the F.B.I., as all they can pay attention to is funny-sounding words, hot girls and other things that fascinate them, like automatically flushing urinals!

This is a very funny movie, the animation is alright, the characters are all enjoyable, the plot (which, again, our heroes seem to ignore) is kind of interesting, the choice of music is also very good and there are many hilarious scenes I will always remember, especially Beavis’ hallucination-sequence. There is also a strange scene earlier where Beavis and Butthead seemingly meet their fathers!… Interesting.

Very good movie. I recommend it especially if you’re fan of the cartoon, but if you are, you’ve most likely seen the film already. If you haven’t, do! (Heh-heh-heh… he said do! Heh-heh!)

4/5 whatever
