Movie Review: Beavis and Butt-Head Do America

This content of this post originally appeared in the “JNL” section of the Janesville Gazette.

The famed AC-DC and Metallica shirt-wearers have come to the theaters only to prove that they aren’t cut out for the silver screen.

Beavis and Butt-Head play the main roles in this movie. While they are asleep and dreaming of being as tall as King Kong, their television set is stolen. They attempt to figure out why it’s gone with their only clues being the broken window, muddy footprints and the men loading a TV into a truck in their driveway.

They come to the idea that it is simply missing, and they go out to find it. On their way, they get involved in a murder case, they stumble into a man’s plan to kill the entire human race, and they meet a sweet old lady on a tour

The problems with the movie are the language and the off-color jokes. None of the jokes is suitable for children, which is why it got the PG-13 rating.

Even though the characters were created by a physicist (Mike Judge), they don’t seem to contain any of the genius from their creator. Beavis gets hooked on caffeine pills and goes crazy and sets off an alert that the
country is being attacked while he thinks that he is someone else.

There are only a few good parts in this movie, all pretty much in the first 10 minutes. Beavis and Butt-Head should learn that they are just better suited to sitting on their couch at home.
