Storyline

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 Martin H. Booda <booda@datasync.com>

Beavis & Butt-Head on the big TV
22 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a hard one for me to rate because I'm a fan of the Beavis & Butt-Head TV show, but this adaptation is pretty different. Whilst the TV show episodes only went for 10 minutes, in B&BDA the guys are off on a feature length journey around America. Of course the plot line is going to be pretty far-fetched to get Beavis & Butt-Head to leave Highland (let alone their couch), and the humour of Beavis & Butt-Head will wear thin for most people after half an hour, but I have to say I'm a fan of these guys, and the movie is pretty damn entertaining.

Still, I think the movie lacks some of the 'social commentary' aspects of the TV show. Yes, the TV show had lots of toilet humour and Beavis & Butt-Head doing stupid things, but I actually think the show had more depth to it than most people gave it credit for, especially with the stereotypical characters it dealt with. The support cast of the TV show is absent here; no Coach Buzzcut, no Daria, no Stewart, no Todd, and McVicker (my favourite; the principal driven to a nervous wreck by Beavis & Butt-Head) plays only a minimal role. I guess this is something that had to be done to get Beavis & Butt-Head out on the road to make it more of a 'cinematic' experience, but it is a shame that people watching only the movie will miss out on some of the funny stereotypical characters the show featured.

Beavis & Butt-Head Do America is definitely not for everyone; there is nothing 'offensive' about it, but most people will find the humour dumb and repetitive. These people don't get what Beavis & Butt-Head is about: the extreme stupidity of teenagers raised on too much TV! Whilst I prefer the TV series to this, it definitely is 80 minutes of good turn-your-brain off entertainment! 3/5 stars
