Having never seen Beavis and Butt-Head’s MTV show, I can’t offer much insight on how the show translates to the big screen, but what I do know is that “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” is a whole lot of undemanding fun. There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and interactions throughout and the plot is absolutely bonkers in the best possible way, and the movie’s short running time (clocking in at barely over 80 minutes) means the whole thing goes by fast. The voice work by Mike Judge as the two titular characters is extraordinary, managing to establish clear, distinct personalities rather quickly, and there are a number of celebrity voice cameos that stand out, in particular Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, who both sound like they’re having fun. The movie’s style of non-sequitur humor is hit-or-miss, but if you’re looking for a funny, entertaining movie, you could do a lot worse.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
