A pure gut-buster
17 November 2005 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO America, in my opinion, is a pure gut-buster. I laughed really hard when Tom (Mike Judge) said, "Must be them d*** buzzard-hogs," while Beavis (Mike Judge) and Butt-Head (Mike Judge) were doing their heavy metal humming. As a matter of fact, I laughed a just about every funny scene. Also, I thought that Dallas (Demi Moore) looked very pretty, even though she was one of the bad guys. In conclusion, I highly recommend this pure gut-buster to all you fans of the "BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD" TV show who have not seen the movie. You're in for a lot of gut-busting laughs, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with a friend, and watch it.
