  • Summary: Beavis and Butt-head hit the road in search of their stolen TV and get mistaken for hit-men hired to "do" a man's sexy wife (Moore). In the pursuit of their misunderstood task, the duo tour the country from Vegas, to the Grand Canyon, and finally to D.C. where Beavis' alter-ego Cornholio makes his last stand at the White House.

    Even the harshest critic has to recognize the sheer unbridled joy of their ignorance.
  2. 78
    A wellspring of lowbrow comedy that leaves you giggling in spite of yourself. Truly, it does not suck.
  3. 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.
  4. Successfully brings to the big screen those no-brainer nerds who have brought laughter to living rooms around the world for nearly four years.
  5. 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.

    Adds up to another prefab youth-culture event and a mediocre movie.
  7. Admirers of their MTV series will find a few laughs in this animated odyssey. Others will find it as repetitious as it is vulgar.

    This may be Beavis and Butt-Head's greatest moment. There were moments where it was so funny, that I was almost choking with joy. This is among the best animated comedies ever. Expand

    This was such a great afternoon. I was accompanied by my best friend, about 16 yrs old, stoned as a dishwasher and just feeling the dumbass cynical jokes from B&B completely. Probably this was the best time I had at a cinema...Well then again holding hands with my girlfriend for the 1st time at the movies and feeling horny at a never seen movie was probably better occasion.

    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.

    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. Expand
