If you're a fan of Beavis and Butthead you will love this it's not much different from the show and it's awesome! It has a good story and some great music by White Zombie and AC/DC as well, the soundtrack is great! This movie should be in the IMDB top 250 I don't care what anybody thinks this cartoon is too fun not to enjoy
