Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters Movie Review
Um, where do I start? Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters is one of the most random, pointless and weird comedies every made - but it's still sort of funny. I really don't know how to review this film, as it is just a film that has to be seen to be believed. The truth is, if you like the television show, you're going to go see this movie and like it, and if not, then you will never see this movie nor, probably, read this review.
I went to go see the film because my roommate is a fan of the show. The humor is a bit too off the wall for me to subscribe to, but I have watched a couple random scenes and found them pretty funny. I accept the strange, ridiculous humor that Aqua Teen offers, and thus I enjoyed Aqua Teen the movie . The movie, like the show, stars a milkshake (or is it a soda?), French fries and a meatball. The rest of the plot is meaningless, but it involves a watermelon alien, a couple of pixilated creatures from some early age arcade game, an exercise machine so amazing it threatens to destroy the world, a mad scientist, a couple more aliens and a robot that likes to hump things.
As with all movies like this (by that I mean cartoon movie adaptations), Aqua Teen could fall into one of two categories. It could go the way of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (brilliance) or make it clear that the television show is funny because it is only 22 minutes long. I really can't say that Aqua Teen is genius by any means, so it falls into the latter category, though luckily it is just entertaining enough to make it worth it. There are some slow stretches, but for the most part the movie evokes genuine laughs on a regular basis.
I don't know where else to go with this review, so I'll just stop it here. "Aqua Teen Hungerforce", the TV show, seems too strange to warrant watching it on a regular basis, but it certainly has its moments. Aqua Teen the movie is funny, but this is certainly a show that didn't need a theatrical movie release. I would have absolutely no interest in watching this movie again, but enjoyed it for what it is. I just don't know what it is.
