I personally think that this movie is very good for a 15-18 year old. Frylock can sometimes be swearing, but overall can be a good role model for some. Very book smart in my opinion.

Is It Any Good?

This is a sequel that's best enjoyed by the fans. Aqua Teen Forever: Phantasm isn't a very good introduction to the show for those who haven't been paying attention these past two decades. The humor is weird and crass, the violence is ridiculous and over-the-top, and the story is...well, there really isn't that much to the story, as the pacing is all over the place, and also broken up at times by hackers in a recurring gag that grows tiresome.

Where it works best and where it's most accessible to those who haven't been longtime fans involves the satirical aspects. The movie takes on Big Tech (read: Amazon) and the messianic billionaire egos in charge of the industry (read: Bezos, Musk, Thiel). In the middle of meta humor, gross humor, and the just plain strange, the movie makes pointed remarks on underpaid employees struggling to survive while said billionaires rake in even more money.
