What have these boys done to our attention spans? This feature-length desecration of MTV's reigning goofballs makes us appreciate the choppy segments of the half-hour show. We want our MTV, but only in fragments. Their lifeline (a television set) stolen, couch potatoes Beavis (voice of Judge) and Butt-head (voice of Judge) wander aimlessly into a hotel room and accept their first job: to do a drunken thug's wife. They think it's way cool until they discover what is meant by “do.” Butt-head pretty much summed up the film when he said, “This sucks more than anything has before,” even though he wasn't referring to the movie.
