Review: Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe Made Me Cackle Like a Goon The Entire Time
While I’m a fan of art in all its many forms, the lowbrow will always be my home. Sophisticated art is beautiful and meaningful, but the minute someone tries to tell me about how sophisticated it is, I want out. Which is why I was stoked to learn that another Beavis and Butt-Head movie was on the way — though when I saw smartphones and wormholes in the preview, I worried Paramount+ would go too hard in the conceptual paint. Thankfully, they didn’t, and Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe is a riot that made me laugh my ass off from beginning to end.
Trying to find a flaw with this movie feels as stupid as its protagonists. If you were hoping for some sort of revelatory reinvention of heavy metal’s favorite fictional characters, then you’re as dumb as they are, too. Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe reminds us that even if life gets complicated and the world seems like a mess, watching two snickering metalhead idiots wander around screwing things up is still comedy gold. Hey. I said ‘screw.’ Aheh. Aheheheheh. Aheheheheheheheheheh.
Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe is streaming now at Paramount+.
