Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe is a 2022 American animated comedy film in which the best buddies go on an adventure in outer space. It is the second film adaptation of the animated television series Beavis and Butt-Head and a sequel to Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996).
Written, directed by and co-starring Mike Judge, the movie also features the voices of Gary Cole and Chris Diamantopoulos.
Immediately after the events of Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, Beavis and Butt-Head are being celebrated as local heroes in their town. A year later, with fame and fortune going to their head, the boys find themselves getting blackmailed for an illegal scam.
Following their arrest, Beavis and Butt-Head are sentenced to a space camp in 1998. Naturally, the duo becomes distracted by a docking simulator and their twisted senses of humour, while they wind up on a space shuttle.
Things go from bad to worse as they travel through a black hole and teleport to the current day. Being unfamiliar with the times, they start to look for love, figure out how to use iPhones, and become hunted by the Deep State…
“Do America was a test of marketplace appeal, with Judge working hard to make his strange animated epic reach a wider audience and still retain its central crudeness. Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe doesn’t share the same creative hunger, but it delivers on humorous situations and time-travel goofiness. Judge is having fun again with Beavis and Butt-Head…” Blu-ray.com
” …Do the Universe is less incisive, settling for easy laughs from the duo’s greatest hits. There are some oddly poignant moments for Beavis, who comes close to feeling emotions other than horniness and frustration, but of course, there can’t be any actual character development, and the humor comes from his futile efforts to broaden his emotional horizons.” 3.5 out of 5, Film Racket Movie Reviews
“Beavis and Butt-Head don’t actually grow in Do the Universe. They can’t grow. Their entire utility as satirical figures hinges on their irreformable numbskullery, the impossibility of changing or teaching or rehabilitating them. Thankfully, the time away hasn’t diminished the smart-dumb comedic value of their personas; watching this latest revival, fans will probably match them chuckle for chuckle.” 3 out of 5, The Guardian
“Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe is full of the usual lowbrow hijinks, whether it’s the funny-sounding words that make both teens chortle or the endless pleasure that comes — for viewers, not for Beavis — from Butt-Head’s all-out assault on his friend’s testicles. There’s the usual excitement about fire and, yes, Cornholio makes an appearance.” The Hollywood Reporter
“A backwards car chase is a late-film highlight, as are numerous scenes that had me laughing out loud, including one where a family asks Butt-Head to take a picture of them in front of a scenic dock. The ending is cute and satisfying, and even with an injection of modernity, Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe remains faithfully true to the established tone of humor and core of the characters.” 3.5 out of 5, Josh at the Movies
“While the film doesn’t do anything revolutionary from a story standpoint, the sheer fact that they updated Beavis and Butthead for a modern time, without sacrificing the feel and laughs of the original show, is fantastic. The movie is uproarious and hilarious, with laughs coming during every scene.” 90%, That Hashtag Show
Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe will be available for streaming on Paramount+ on June 23, 2022.
