This is a cartoon but its not for kids and its not Japanese. If you don’t know in japan the cartoons are not only for kids, there is also demon raping, etc.
Bruce plays Muddy Grimes, a scruffly dude not unlike myself who tries to con two dumb heavy metal kids into smuggling a powerful weapon for him. Bruce does not have as much screen time as you would like but the story of these two little pricks Butthead and Beavis is pretty funny. Kind of reminds me of the old pink panthers how they go around and get chased by the FBI and then save the day and have no clue any of this shit went down.
What this has is a lot of dick jokes and masturbating but in my opinion there is a bit more going on then that. This film uses the satire when various law enforcement branches strip search and violate innocent bystanders and make fun of them for invoking the constitution. There are sly cultural references and what not with Chelsea Clinton, a psychedelic sequence, a ridiculous Engelbert Humperdinck tune called “Lesbian Seagull,” etc. The cartoonists are very observant about the values of various social classes – ex-hippie teachers, retired Texan couples, Motley Crue roadies and whatnot. Also I like when they stand in front of the automatic flushing toilets with their eyes full of awe and wave their hands around.
okay is that enough

There was a point last year, when everybody was celebrating this movie’s 20th anniversary, when I remembered this review from the vault of “Well, he was just getting started” and hoped you would review it again. Well, after watching it again, I don’t think that’s necessary. There is really not much to say about it. It’s at times more clever than most critics would admit, but not to the point where one would have to write a long defense of its undiscovered qualities. Especially because it’s one of Mike Judge’s weaker efforts. It’s not the worst thing he ever did, but even if we ignore everything by him, that isn’t BEAVIS & BUTT-HEAD related, it’s more of a “pretty good, but he made better things” affair. (Also I’m not sure if you would really care that much for it anyway.)
