Beavis and Butt-head Do America

After realizing that their beloved boob tube is gone, couch potatoes Beavis and Butt-head (both voiced by creator Mike Judge) set off on a cross-country expedition that takes them from Las Vegas to the nation's capital. Along the way, they're mistaken for hit men and get caught up in a weapons-smuggling conspiracy as a gaggle of mobsters and lawmen shadow the two morons. Celebrity voices include Cloris Leachman, Robert Stack and David Letterman.

Successfully brings to the big screen those no-brainer nerds who have brought laughter to living rooms around the world for nearly four years. full review

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

An old saying states that too much of anything isn't good, and this is a prime example. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

Faithful fans of the MTV series will no doubt be amused. But the few newcomers who pay the price of admission likely will wonder what all the fuss has been about. full review

Joe Leydon, Variety

They distill the agony of adolescence, the queasy feeling of being trapped in a body going through monstrous changes, at the same time that they purge it of its terror. full review

Stephen Holden, New York Times

It's as good as any animated feature about two teenage morons could ever hope to be. full review

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Takes the spirit of their late night TV show and flies with it. full review

Desson Thomson, Washington Post

Mostly, we get dumb formula, not quite ironic and self-mocking enough to be hip. full review

Gary Kamiya, Salon.com

Those who deplore Beavis and Butt-Head are confusing the messengers with the message. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Judge's mirth translates surprisingly well to an 80-minute length, and he exploits the movies' greater scope without sacrificing the show's cheesy charm.

Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle

Even if the movie does engender a few more chuckles than expected, where's that redneck in a truck when we need one?
