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>

Great
24 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was directed by Mike Judge (office Space). After finding out their TV is stolen, Beavis and Butthead are determined to get it back. After failing stealing a TV from school, they stumble in a seedy hotel room with Muddy Grimes lying on his bed. He gets them confused with the killers he hired to "Do" his wife and sends them to Las Vegas. Mike judge is a good writer/director, he has a dry sense of humor that appeals to me in most of his work (Except king of the hill, Damn that's dry!). The movie is a wild-goose-chase for Beavis and Butthead, and they stay oblivious as much as on their MTV show. I don't think any fan of the MTV show would disagree that Mike Judge did the best job possible-for this movie.
