Beavis and ButtHead Do America ★★½ 1996 (PG-13)

Moronic MTV metalheads go on the road in search of their stolen TV and are somehow mistaken for criminal masterminds. Okay, enough about plot. If you're thinking of renting this one, you don't care about that stuff anyway. Director/writer/voice of B&B Judge is smart enough not to change our “heroes” just because they're on a bigger screen. They're still stupid, obsessed with chicks, (Yeah! Chicks are cool!) and blissfully unaware of what's happening around them. The opening sequence, a parody of 70s cop shows, is hilarious (and cool). For those who like the show, and for people who just don't admit that they do, the boys' movie debut (he said “but”) doesn't suck. 82m/C VHS, DVD. D: Mike Judge; W: Joe Stillman, Mike Judge; M: John (Gianni) Frizzell; V: Mike Judge, Robert Stack, Cloris Leachman, Demi Moore, Eric Bogosian, Richard Linklater, Pamela Blair, Tim Guinee, David Letterman, David Spade, Bruce Willis, Toby Huss.
