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>

Trivia

Geffen Pictures acquired the film rights in 1993 with the hopes of making a live-action version of the series with David Spade as Beavis and Adam Sandler as Butt-head. Mike Judge hated the idea, finding the idea of making Beavis and Butt-head live-action not only sacrilege, but more expensive than animation. Reportedly, the decision to make the film in its final form was the result of a coin toss. See more »

Goofs

The writing on the side of the Dream America bus changes throughout the film. When Beavis and Butt-Head go down to board the bus, the font has changed from when we first see the bus from Dallas' window. Also, later in the film when the boys rejoin the bus, the name of the tour company is now spelled as "DreamAmerica" with no space. See more »

Almost as funny as the series
27 January 2004 | by Smells_Like_CheeseSee all my reviews

If not just as funny, "Beavis and Butthead" is a very popular television show that won so many couch potato's hearts. :) Which I can understand, hey, I love them too. Now they take on America, our beautiful country. When the boy's T.V. is stolen, they try to go find a new one, but end up in the hands of a criminal mastermind that happens to be very drunk. He tells the boys when he mistakes them for the hit-man who will "do" his ex-wife who stole a very powerful virus that the CIA, FBI, and ATF have been dying to get their hands on and save the country. When the boys misunderstand the Muddy's, the criminal, word of "do" his wife, they get excited that they are getting paid to do it and they figure they can get a "big screen TV, with two remotes", this is possibly one of the greatest days of their lives. When they get the wife's room, her name is Dallas, she just finds it amusing how they misunderstood the word "do her", she takes the virus and sows it into Beavis's pants and send them on a tour bus heading for Washington, D.C. promising them a "score" when they get there.

But they are in for some big surprises when they are not only being chased by Muddy and Dallas, but turn out to be the "Most Dangerous Men in America" and are hunted down but somehow always manage to escape the ATF. This is a hilarious movie for the true fans of Beavis and Butthead or even if you're not, you'll enjoy it. It's a fun movie with great humor that will make the most sophisticated intellectual laugh.

8/10
