The Aqua Teen Hunger Force defies description. It’s animated, but only barely. Calling The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For The Theaters an animated movie would be kind of like calling a wheelbarrow an automobile. The animation is crappy, but on purpose. It’s probably a little more fair to legitimately animated films to label this a cartoon. But it’s not a cartoon for kids. There’s a reason the original television show on which the movie is based airs only late at night on the Cartoon Network, as part of the ass end of their Adult Swim programming block. If your kids are watching ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force’, then you’re a bad parent and/or probably stoned.
If you’re stoned, well you’ll fit right in with everyone who shows up to see this movie. To get the most out of it, you need to be really really high. I wasn’t high when I showed up to see Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For The Theaters this afternoon, but I laughed at it anyway. It’s random, weird, and completely bizarre. It’s also funny in spots, assuming you don’t care to figure out what the hell is going on.
To translate the television show into a feature film, they’ve taken the television series, added bombastic Phil Collins music, and made lots of things explode. If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll love the film. If you’re not a fan of the show, loving it may be a bit more difficult. For you newbies out there, Aqua Teen Hunger Force is about three fast food items who have super powers (well at least two of them do) and are roommates. They get on each others nerves, have strange, incomprehensible adventures, and do the sorts of things that non-fast food people usually only do while tripping on acid. Acid by the way, is another drug which might enhance your enjoyment of this film. For legal reasons, we cannot recommend that you take it. Wink. Wink.
Don’t worry about the plot, there isn’t one. Don’t worry about the characters; the characters are made out of cardboard and meat. The movie works wonderfully when taking potshots at pop culture, the movie industry and the theater experience; it doesn’t work so well when it tries to make sense. Luckily, it doesn’t do that very often. If you’ve watched the television show then Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For The Theaters is everything you’d expect it to be. If you haven’t watched the show, then it’s unlikely you’d consider seeing the movie anyway. If ever there was a movie that’s review-proof it’s this one. There’s nothing to review. Just 87 minutes of wild (wholly enjoyable) mental instability.
