Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters Reviews

  • The plot can't be summarized: Let's just say that crazy s--- happens, and occasionally, you laugh.

    Scott Brown — Entertainment Weekly

  • The writers seem to proceed from the adolescent assumption that anything that crosses their minds is automatically funny. To them, sure.

    A.O. Scott — New York Times

  • Offers occasional laughs amid a jumble of pop-culture references. Despite its Borat-esque title, don't expect a coherent plot.

    Claudia Puig — USA Today

  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters is a work of either a profoundly transgressive genius or a goofball high on Pez and patio sealant.

    Stephen Hunter — Washington Post

  • It's inconsequential, potty-mouthed, extremely silly, and -- the worst sin of all -- dead boring.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • Narrative's beside the point in a movie created by two guys who gorge on pop culture's high-fat diet and regurgitate it into something approaching . . . art? Close enough.

    Robert Wilonsky — Village Voice

  • So insane it approaches a sort of mad brilliance, this full-length Cartoon Network spinoff must have been made with chemical enhancement in mind. Enter with a clear head at your own risk.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • Fittingly, the sequences when the movie actually tries to tell a story are when things bog down and fall apart. Much better is when the movie stops trying to make sense and just lets the pop-art absurdities fly.

    Tom Maurstad — Dallas Morning News

  • Fans of Aqua Teen who couldn't wait for the next TV season? You'll likely love it. The uninitiated? It would be a lot cheaper to watch five minutes of the Cartoon Network. Save your money for some higher-quality, nonanimated fast food.

    Michael Booth — Denver Post

  • In short bursts of late-night TV, ATHF is cramp-inducingly funny. Stretched over 87 minutes, it's too much to bear. Fast food cures the munchies but makes for a terrible diet.

    Eric Gwinn — Chicago Tribune

  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force tends toward arch silliness more than actual humor, a formula that's tolerable enough in 15-minute tube installments but deadly dull in this 86-minute feature.

    J. R. Jones — Chicago Reader

  • Daringly and surprisingly successfully attempts to hold viewers' interest in the (barely) animated triumvirate of Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad for six times the length of a normal episode.

    Dan DeLuca — Philadelphia Inquirer

  • The film cheerfully dispenses with sanity, logic and coherence, but it's put across with irresistible energy. Once you're aboard this water slide of lunacy, all you can do is surrender to its complete, engulfing weirdness and enjoy yourself.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • If you're not among the Aqua Teen hard core, the aggressive dumbness wears out its welcome about five minutes after the lights go down.

    Randy Cordova — Arizona Republic

  • This feature-length expansion offers a diverting package of surreal, rude stoner- and pop culture-based humor that will delight youthful viewers while bewildering stray elders.

    Dennis Harvey — Variety

  • The big-screen version of the demented Cartoon Network hit is often hilarious and always surreal.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • To think we laughed at Boston. Then. They knew a bomb when they saw one.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Aqua Teen Hunger Force is clearly designed to appeal to fans of the show. For the rest of us, its appeal may be something of a stretch.

    Stephanie Zacharek — Salon.com

  • ATHF can seem brilliantly deconstructive one moment and stupefyingly boring the next -- or to provide a more accurate ratio, it can follow five brilliant seconds with five straight minutes of boredom.

    Dana Stevens — Slate

  • The brainchild of Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis isn't immune to the problem often faced by supersize cartoons -- namely, what might be effectively clever when doled out in episodic portions tends to get diluted over the course of an expanded format.
