Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The original format for the pair of snarky, giggling teens sat on a sofa commenting on music videos worked so well because, despite all their silly, immature flaws, they were great company. The revival of this duo in the 21st century only highlights how harmless they are, and -- believe it or not -- Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe is actually quite wholesome. Despite finding innuendo in almost anything.

Starting the story just before the gigantic internet revolution and then catapulting them into 2022, there is a wealth of comedy material available but only the rarest gems are mined. The movie never settles for the easiest, simplest joke or observation about smartphones, Siri, and other previously unimaginable things that have become part of everyday life. Instead it finds new ways to bring these to the fore, as well as great takes on White privilege, gender issues, and mansplaining. Non-stop misunderstandings drive the story forward. Alongside the frequently hilarious, non-stop innuendo, of course.
