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

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 »
In the version aired on TNN May 26, 2002, in the scene where the FBI agents are talking after Beavis and Butt-Head leave the Hoover Dam, the word "terrorists" was replaced with "masterminds". See more »
This film spin-off from the MTV show featuring the archetypal juvenile slackers with an all-consuming passion for TV, rude words ("huh, huh-huh, you said anus,") and scoring with chicks (at which they are singularly unsuccessful) is pretty good considering the low level of the humour. The moronic duo wander through life completely unaware of both their innate doofishness and the trail of chaos they leave in their wake as they are mistakenly hired by a drunken low-life (voiced by Bruce Willis) to 'do' his sexy wife (Demi Moore) who has absconded with the macguffin they stole together. The genesis of Hank Hill from B&B creator Mike Judge's other show, King of the Hill, can be seen here in the character of Tom Anderson, a tourist who runs across Beavis and Butthead throughout the film. Anderson is older, but he bears a strong resemblance to Hill, and his voice is identical. There's a neat riff on monster movies at the start of the film, and a great satire of 70s cop shows during the credits, and while the jokes are mostly juvenile and silly, they're consistently amusing, which makes this film surprisingly funny and enjoyable.
