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>

Alternate Versions

When "Beavis and Butt-head Do America" premiered on MTV on August 7, 1999, an additional cut scene followed the movie. While visiting the Pentagon, Beavis can't take a dump in their restroom because there's no toilet paper in the stall. Butt-head is equally angry with Washington because the urinals don't automatically flush when you run your hand across them. After the rest of their tour bus has finished looking at an encased Declaration of Independence, Beavis sneaks out, breaks the glass and snatches it to use as "T.P. for his bunghole." While Pentagon guards rush to see what happened, Beavis cleans up and exits the stall with a piece of the Declaration, containing John Hancock's signature, stuck to his shoe. See more »

User Reviews

Generation X Art.
6 July 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

The controversial but highly popular MTV animated series hits the big screen in this surprisingly entertaining and humorous film from the crazed mind of Mike Judge. The two dim-witted teenage friends have their television stolen and set out to find it. However it seems that a chemical weapon of mass destruction has fallen into the pair's hands. Now national security is a major issue as the two go on a long journey to some of the country's most famous locales. The authorities always seem to be two steps behind in this film that has a comedic life of its own. Interesting voice characterizations by Judge, Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, Cloris Leachman and the golden-voiced Robert Stack all match their animated alter-egos perfectly. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
