    A wellspring of lowbrow comedy that leaves you giggling in spite of yourself. Truly, it does not suck.
  2. 70
    A hallucination sequence and a scene set in a Vegas nightclub are so engrossing you forget they're animated; even the showiest techniques don't detract from the story.
  3. 75
    Those who deplore Beavis and Butt-Head are confusing the messengers with the message.
  4. Admirers of their MTV series will find a few laughs in this animated odyssey. Others will find it as repetitious as it is vulgar.
  5. Scene for scene, the duo are in good form. Yet this is one case where more turns out to be less.
  6. 80
    Even the harshest critic has to recognize the sheer unbridled joy of their ignorance.
  7. Successfully brings to the big screen those no-brainer nerds who have brought laughter to living rooms around the world for nearly four years.
  8. 63
    Those who have learned to enjoy the duo on MTV (for whatever reason) will welcome this as a holiday treat. Everyone else will have a better time if they stay away.

    There are some yucks in this ludicrous movie, but what was amusingly imbecilic at 20 inches becomes simply simian at 20 feet. To paraphrase SCTV's fishing louts, some things just don't blow up real good.
  10. Has some funny moments, and if you're a Beavis and Butt-head fan, you'll enjoy the movie.
  11. Reviewed by: John Krewson
    Adds up to another prefab youth-culture event and a mediocre movie.
  12. Reviewed by: Bruce Diones
    Their monumentally stupid and childish observations burst like water balloons over the heads of everyone they encounter; the movie plays like a dumbed-down "Animal House," and its idiocy is irresistible.
  13. Reviewed by: Staff (Not credited)
    It's just as juvenile as you'd expect, and even funnier.
  14. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    Has some genuinely amusing moments of dumb and dumber silliness.
  15. Takes the spirit of their late night TV show and flies with it.

    I'm the great CORNHOLIO! This movie based on the "kid-corrupting" cartoon is stylish and hysterically funny. The jokes might be a little gross at times, or offensive, but that just makes the movie better. Also, it's funny to see Bruce Willis, Demi Moore, and a Bill Clinton impersonator really date the film in a good way. Full Review »

    Beavis and Butt-head are the no-brain buddies who laugh like worried sheep and move as gracefully as ironing boards. From their rightful place in front of the TV and on it the sedentary duo have been forced on to the celluloid highway. The point is, barring the loss of the naff music videos, nothing much about Mike Judge's creation has changed. Under the happy delusion that someone will pay them to have sex with a beautiful chick, the pair get caught up in an international spy ring, with all roads leading to the White House and much classic American scenery studiously ignored in favour of obsessive word play. This can pall after a while, yet what holds the interest is the attention to character, with B&B the latest incarnation of the Odd Couple. Beavis can't handle caffeine and hates the idea of flying. He's a '90s icon, but a jibbering fit on a plane highlights his acute discomfort with modernity. The pair are also all at sea in pioneer country. In the film's finest moment, when the boys meet up with their roadie fathers in the desert, the cry from the heart is: 'We need a 7-Eleven!' Without a TV, they have no rightful place and only mind-altering substances can restore equilibrium. With most mainstream US movies rabidly anti-drugs, this is a strikingly contrary message, rammed home by a splendid Butthole Surfers' song, which even the sober happy-clappy ending can't erase.
