Storyline

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 Martin H. Booda <booda@datasync.com>

Trivia

The version of "Walk on Water" on the official soundtrack is not the version that is heard in the movie. The version played in the movie is actually the 'demo' version, and it appears on Disc 2 of Ozzy Osbourne's 'Prince of Darkness' boxed set. See more »

Goofs

Tom Anderson is involved in the large multi-vehicle collision caused by Beavis and Butthead falling out of the trunk of Dusty's car on the highway near Washington, DC, and does significant damage to the front end of his SUV. In later scenes at the White House, however (supposedly later the same day), his vehicle is undamaged. See more »

Quotes

Marcie Anderson: They're here to look at the TV, Tom.
Tom Anderson: What? The TV ain't broken.
Beavis: Uh, yeah it is.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits sequence is done in a style that spoofs 70s cops shows, and features an Isaac Hayes song, which could be considered a style parody of the theme to Shaft. See more »

One of the best films of 1996
19 March 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beavis and Butthead Do America is as funny (if not funnier) than the television show. It looks at the two morons like never before (with intelligence). The plot involves the duo on a cross-country odyssey to "score". Along the way, we overhear the voices of Robert Stack, Cloris Leachman, Eric Bogosian, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Greg Kinnear and David Letterman. And of course, Mike Judge (who directed, co-wrote and voiced 5 characters) who created this (God help me for saying) satirical masterpiece brings this film to a fine edge that isn't lost years later. For it's fans it's entertaining, in spots hysterically funny, and even cool to an extent; it's a film that, in a way, should get more credit than it got, but as a film on a level of 'cult' status it ranks in the background of other comedy peaks from the X-ers of the 90s. Where else will you get Dave Letterman playing former Motley Crue roadies turned drifters?
