The animated short that introduced the world to Beavis and Butt-head, the two dimwitted fifteen year-olds with the intelligence of dirt. "Frog Baseball" features the two distinguished ... See full summary »
Our intrepid adolescent heroes wake up to find their beloved television stolen, and embark on an epic journey across America to recover it, and, who knows, maybe even score. On the way they encounter a murderous smuggler of a deadly virus and his treacherous wife, an FBI agent with a predilection for cavity searches, a couple of rather familiar looking ex-Motley Crue roadies, Mr. Van Dreesen singing "Lesbian Seagull", a little old lady and of course Mr. Anderson and his trailer. Can the Great Cornholio save the day? Uh-huh. Huh-huh.Written by

Geffen Pictures acquired the film rights in 1993 with the hopes of making a live-action version of the series with David Spade as Beavis and Adam Sandler as Butt-head. Mike Judge hated the idea, finding the idea of making Beavis and Butt-head live-action not only sacrilege, but more expensive than animation. Reportedly, the decision to make the film in its final form was the result of a coin toss. See more »
Automatic flush urinals do not function in the way shown in the film. Simply waving a hand in front of the sensor will not flush the toilet. See more »

When "Beavis and Butt-head Do America" premiered on MTV on August 7, 1999, an additional cut scene followed the movie. While visiting the Pentagon, Beavis can't take a dump in their restroom because there's no toilet paper in the stall. Butt-head is equally angry with Washington because the urinals don't automatically flush when you run your hand across them. After the rest of their tour bus has finished looking at an encased Declaration of Independence, Beavis sneaks out, breaks the glass and snatches it to use as "T.P. for his bunghole." While Pentagon guards rush to see what happened, Beavis cleans up and exits the stall with a piece of the Declaration, containing John Hancock's signature, stuck to his shoe. See more »
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.
