I grew up watching Beavis & Butt-Head on MTV, and I found it to be hilarious. When Beavis & Butt-Head got their first feature film release in 1996, Beavis & Butt-Head Do America, I went to my local movie theater and loved every minute of the movie. So, when I heard a new movie was coming out, Beavis & Butt-Head Do the Universe, exclusively on Paramount+, I had to watch it. Read on for my thoughts on this movie.
Blasting off on a NASA space mission in 1998, mischievous best pals Beavis and Butt-head time travel to the year 2022. As the NSA and U.S. government try to track them down, the clueless teens do their best to adjust to modern life.
Beavis & Butt-Head Do the Universe is a really fun movie. I went into it not sure if it was going to be lame or underwhelming, and it was neither. Mike Judge has done a terrific job of creating a modern movie that feels like an old-school extended episode of Beavis & Butt-Head.
The jokes are dumb in the best way possible, the voices just as I remember them, and the plot is as ridiculous and over the top as a Saints Row video game. I’m really glad that Beavis and Butt-Head are back because they’ve been sorely missed. And this movie is just the appetizer to a full-fledged return of the TV show on Paramount+, which, as I write this, is now live on the streaming service with two new episodes for fans to enjoy. I wholeheartedly recommend Beavis & Butt-Head Do the Universe, and I can’t wait to check out the new episodes of the TV show.
