‘Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe’ sees Mike Judge’s horny MTV duo make their triumphant return

The world has only gotten dumber over the past three decades, making the return of animation’s crown princes Beavis and Butt-Head long overdue. Arriving June 23 on Paramount+ (along with her entire MTV TV series catalogue), Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe is an admirable sequel to 1996 Beavis and Butt-Head make America, proving that amusing madness never goes out of style. Indeed, such absurdity transcends eras, as does the mindless duo in their latest adventure, who follow them through a time-space portal that transports them from the cozy confines of 1998 to the dizzying landscape of 2022.

Placing Beavis and Butt-Head in a modern context seems like a premise ripe for pointed satire, and there are definitely a few digs at contemporary culture scattered throughout Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe. But for the most part, the film’s setting is just an excuse for the same kind of brain-dead chuckles and sexual puns that have always defined Mike Judge’s comedy. In this sci-fi saga (which he co-wrote with Lew Morton), Judge once again voices both the hyperactive blonde Beavis and the nonchalantly dopey butt-head, whose animation – by famed studio Titmouse – is as familiar as the somber dispositions and the dynamics of its protagonists. There’s nothing particularly new here other than the details of that narrative, which makes sense considering Beavis and Butt-Head are entertaining precisely because of their reliably youthful and horny reactions to anything and everyone they encounter.

“There you have it – the greatest story ever told,” intones Butt-Head at the end of John Rice and Albert Calleros’ Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe, and while that description is certainly up for debate, there’s no questioning the fact that Judge’s metalhead jerks remain icons of perpetual stupidity. As they describe, their second feature film is a “tale of two heroes in search of dots. About time and space. It’s a story about sex, violence and power,” and it begins in 1998 at the Highland High School science fair, where the winner is rewarded with a trip to NASA’s space camp. For Butt-Head, however, it’s just a random place to indulge in one of his favorite pastimes: repeatedly kicking Beavis in the nads. This leads to the kind of fiery chaos that is the bread and butter of the pyromaniac Beavis, and it takes them to court, where a judge makes the unlikely decision to try to redeem these wayward youths by putting them in the said warehouse at the Johnson Space Center, whose sign immediately prompts Butt-Head to joke, “There it stands Johnson.”

Beavis and Butt-Head don’t care about a thing but rock their heads and try to lose their virginity, the latter something they never seem to achieve. Still, they’re convinced they’ll have sex with a woman when space shuttle captain Serena Ryan (Andrea Savage) – who is always accompanied by her pathetically underrated and disgruntled Lieutenant Commander Jim Hartson (Nat Faxon) – gives them the Docking mechanism shown used to connect their vehicle to the Mir space station to deliver a telescope for observing black holes. This huge contraption looks and works just like a penis and vagina, and Beavis and Butt-Head are instantly hypnotized. After proving their supernatural dexterity in piloting this phallic machine, they are recruited to join Ryan and her crew on their quest – a task they readily accept because Ryan promises they “really do it” in space. be able.

Beavis and Butt-Head are like dumber variations of To be there‘s Chance the Gardener, stumble into one ridiculously inappropriate position after another, and once in orbit they predictably wreak havoc, leading to their own journey through the black hole and into the present. There, they are visited by Smart Beavis and Smart Butt-Head – alternate multiversal versions of themselves who inform them that their time-space excursion has created an instability that threatens all of reality. That should be the nominal motivation for Beavis and Butt-Head to embark on their subsequent odyssey, though what really drives them is a desire to reconnect with Ryan, who is now running for re-election as Texas governor applies because they continue to believe that she wants to sleep with them.

The action comes via Ryan and the FBI (Gary Cole, Chi McBride) hunting down the teens, while gags about Siri and a quick stroll around a college campus are the primary means of doing so Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe makes fun of our current circumstances. That comes to a head when Beavis and Butt-Head accidentally walk into a gender studies class where they talk about “sluts” and get an insightful lesson on “white privilege” for their inappropriateness — and excitedly think they’re entitled anything they want, including food from strangers and police cars.

“That should be the nominal motivation for Beavis and Butt-Head to embark on their subsequent odyssey, though what really drives them is a desire to reconnect with Ryan, who is now running for re-election as Texas governor applies because they continue to believe that she wants to sleep with them.”

One wishes more material was as relevant or as self-referential as Smart Beavis telling his counterpart that the portal is hidden behind the university’s Classics building as far back as 1998 because nobody cares about humanities, and then chuckles, “More satirical Commentary on the times.” Nonetheless, there is something comforting when Judge and company portray the exploits of Beavis and Butt-Head in largely old-fashioned terms, and in fact knowingly double it, so that Butt-Head giggles in response to someone “dictating” because it includes the word “tail,” Beavis complains, “so one word sounds like another word. Big thing. Who cares” – only to laugh when Ryan says “Deep State Assets” because, well, “ate ass”.

If that doesn’t make you laugh then it will Beavis and Butt-Head make the universe is not for you However, those who have a thing for the mindless couple will dig into their latest outing, where replacing a TV with a bookshelf is a disaster of epic proportions (books are “the worst thing in the world”), with Beavis eventually falling out so many pills that he morphs into his TP-obsessed alter ego Cornholio, reminiscent of the touchstones of the ’90s – in this case Touched by an angel and Michael Bolton – are occasional. Unlike its theatrical predecessor, the Judge sequel doesn’t have a cast full of luminaries like Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. But that generally works in his favor, allowing him to keep a close eye on his giant-headed, ignorant heroes – along with their pathetic refusal to develop a brain cell, and (uh-huh-huh, uh-huh-huh) grow up.
