One of the main “rules” of writing a screenplay is that your main character must change. Not only throughout the film, but a little bit until the end of each scene, even. However, part of the appeal of so many classic clowns on the big screen is that they don’t change – or at least, if that happens, they go back to the beginning until the next movie. The three puppets will never resolve their differences peacefully. Hardy will always blame Laurel. Kostelo can never learn to be as brave as Abbott. And Beavis and Butt-head, despite the occasional lifeline thrown at them by the wrong kindness of people like Mr. Van Drissen’s hippie teacher, will remain stupid, destructive, nacho-loving horndos who rarely get close to real sexual intercourse from a random entendra double. It all means Beavis and Butt-head Do The Universe is pretty much what you’d expect — and it’s, uhhhhh, pretty cool.

With 86 minutes, and with a rather limited cast, this is closer to those episodes of streaming lasting from the movie South Park than it is Beavis And Butt-head Do America, which had multiple stories, striking sequences with a larger budget and significant roles for fans of favorite supporting characters such as uninformed Korean War veteran Tom Anderson. But other than a short sequence close to the beginning BABDTU, none of the usual plots and enemies of the two are involved in the plot. And for those who care about such things, it breaks the canon, sending Bivis and Bat-Hed through a black hole from 1998 to 2022, thus denying the existence of a timeline for Season 8 (aka The Mike Judge Collection Volume 4 ), where they operated drones and observed Twilight. In addition, it also adds some tempting little things to mythology, such as her, including Beavis’ mother’s name and their real address.

Most importantly, however – and the trailers have already spoiled this – from the crib Rick and Morty, and every other “multiverse” film and show, by introducing the notion of an infinite variant of Beavis and Butt-heads across the universe. Two of them, called Smart Beavis and Smart Butt-head, trained as Marvel observers, take part in the plot here, occasionally and in vain trying to lead their stupider selves. Like in Do America, the plot starts when Beavis and Bath-Head misunderstand the offer of an attractive woman to “do it real”. Since Serena, the woman in question, is an astronaut, she puts them on a space shuttle and then throws them through time. By 2022, Serena is a successful politician who is convinced that she killed the boys, while they in turn still decide to force her to fulfill what they considered her promise.

Making Beavis and Butthead a walking anachronism like a leading family The Bradi Bunch Movie It may sound like a cheap trick, but it is essential for the ability of any new audience to connect with it. In the high school days of director / creator Mike Judge and the 90s, stupid teenagers who wore heavy metal T-shirts every day, blew up animals with fireworks, laughed at every joke about sex and “never scored a goal” would probably end up forgotten. a dead end of business in some small town. Today, however, these guys are on 8chan who are planning shootings at school and sharing Nazi memes. Remember the conscious attempts of MTV after the first season of the show to turn the duo Doofus into the only victims of their own stupidity, after they were initially portrayed as true malicious delinquents who smoked, robbed Mexican children of fireworks and inhaled gas from the kiln. The inability to use the Internet also bypasses many modern problems.

(Still, it’s fun to note that AC / DC and Metallica T-shirts have remained an integral part of both eras.)

Interestingly, however, the film makes a special effort to portray at least one actual death caused by Beavis and Butt-Head’s antics this time around, although it is a rejection that is never mentioned again. In general, they continue to harm themselves more than anyone else, while causing enormous amounts of damage. The judge, as always, makes it clear that the society here is not perfect – many adults and authorities simply do not pay enough attention to these two morons. But it is also clear that even if someone cared, it would not help much. Butt-Head’s constantly abusive behavior towards Bivis is mildly questioned, but in the end, Bivis’ libido and pyromania will always draw him back to his greatest helper.

In the funniest sequence of the film, Beavis and Bath-Head learn the concept of white privilege and continue to abuse it for everything worthwhile. It is not clear what Gen Z will do with all this, but it is not necessarily made for them. Beavis and Butt-head work the universe is a film for fans of the 90s, whose creator is especially involved in this label. He kicks us out by returning home 14 years later and not coming across older versions of famous side players, but that’s probably a sequel, if necessary.

With Sinica running the animation, the artwork looks a bit strange this time around, with some supporting characters that look more like Archer rejects before he judges the grotesque. There is no doubt that this has accelerated production, but it is not quite the same. Still, at least the humor is. You know exactly what kind of jokes you get with these two, and it’s all in the delivery.

Yes. Their delivery rules. That’s the government! He he he m he he he.
