Our intrepid adolescent heroes wake up to find their beloved television stolen, and embark on an epic journey across America to recover it, and, who knows, maybe even score. On the way they encounter a murderous smuggler of a deadly virus and his treacherous wife, an FBI agent with a predilection for cavity searches, a couple of rather familiar looking ex-Motley Crue roadies, Mr. Van Dreesen singing "Lesbian Seagull", a little old lady and of course Mr. Anderson and his trailer. Can the Great Cornholio save the day? Uh-huh. Huh-huh. Written by

Mike Judge actually got the "is this a god dam" joke from his grandmother, and when she told him it, he didn't find it funny at all. Ironically, numerous viewers have since told Judge it's their favorite part of the movie. See more »

Beavis and Butthead Do America is as funny (if not funnier) than the television show. It looks at the two morons like never before (with intelligence). The plot involves the duo on a cross-country odyssey to "score". Along the way, we overhear the voices of Robert Stack, Cloris Leachman, Eric Bogosian, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Greg Kinnear and David Letterman. And of course, Mike Judge (who directed, co-wrote and voiced 5 characters) who created this (God help me for saying) satirical masterpiece brings this film to a fine edge that isn't lost years later. For it's fans it's entertaining, in spots hysterically funny, and even cool to an extent; it's a film that, in a way, should get more credit than it got, but as a film on a level of 'cult' status it ranks in the background of other comedy peaks from the X-ers of the 90s. Where else will you get Dave Letterman playing former Motley Crue roadies turned drifters?
