One of the seminal TV shows of my life. When I was nine, ten, and beyond, I listened to G’n’R, Nirvana, and watched Beavis and Butthead. It made perfect sense, and no-one else got it, which also made perfect sense. Cut forward several years, and the movie was released. It had everything that made the show so great. Humour I felt privileged to ‘get’, while parents and younger kids, and those who loved their ‘beats’ didn’t have a clue.
The movie follows Beavis and Butthead on a road trip across America in search of their TV, and possibly, sluts. Naturally they get into various scrapes along the way, Cornholio pops up, and both the FBI and a couple of criminals are on their asses. Certain familiar characters pop up for the faithful viewer to appreciate.
Willis and Moore don’t add anything special to the mix, they could have been voiced by anyone and I would still find the movie funny. The donkey scene: so true. The toilet scene: wish I had those. The road signs: I’m laughing now just thinking about it. Good to see Mr Anderson finally get a good seeing to. Only disappointment, um… the absence of Todd, and Stuart with his ‘Winger’ T-shirt. He tried so hard. Must stop. I’m laughing too hard.
This special edition DVD has a few decent features, but having the movie for a cheap price is good enough.
Feel free to comment on the review and the movie- did the series translate well to the big screen or do you think the shorts are superior?
