If there is one thing people will remember from this movie isn’t the movie itself. It’s going to be from the unusual marketing ploy to get people to see the movie in theaters. A bunch of people put up Light Brite looking things of those aliens on the TV show, and for some reason, Boston thought it was a bomb. It just goes to show you that the Boston Police Department and the city of Boston don’t watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It also shows you how dumb the city is. The people that got arrested were great and quite funny because they pretty much made a mockery of the court appearance. But that whole ordeal is behind everyone now, and America is too busy worrying what Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan are doing to even remember that incident. But ATHF movie has come and go and now the DVD is out as well.
Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters For Dvd is about Frylock, Master Shake, and Meatwad. Talking food that live in a shitty house in even shittier New Jersey. Their next door neighbor is Carl, a cranky son of a bitch who walks around in sweats and a wife beater. You know, your typical person from New Jersey. Notice my distaste for NJ yet? Like most of the episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, the movie was pretty much an extended episode. Its also very similar to the show because it’s totally random and weird. The whole premise of the movie is pretty much finding out the origins of the Frylock, Master Shake, and Meatwad and to uncover the mystery of some exercise equipment. Like I said, pretty random. Trying to explain the plot any further will make your head explode and will probably just make you more confused.
I’m not a die-hard fan of the series but I do like ATHF. It does get weird a lot of the times, but anything that Master Shake says just cracks me up. The giant milkshake could just be reading the ingredients of a pumpkin pie and I would find it funny. It’s really hard to hear what Meatwad says, but thankfully there’s subtitles on the DVD. Once you figure out what Meatwad is saying, it’s quite funny. The first half hour of the movie is great and there are a lot of funny moments. After that, it becomes really random and not as funny as the beginning. They have a nice spoof on the ‘let’s all go to the drive-in’ before the movie as well. Mastodon does the song, and they are portrayed like animated food. The movie is best when the three main characters are in the limelight and not when the extremely weird and annoying characters like McPee Pants are around. I have to admit Carl is just as good as the three main characters though. He’s such a grumpy bastard. As a stand alone movie, I’m not sure how strong this movie is. It just felt like a very long episode with a lot of filler. I thought the plot could have been better executed, and the end could have been better. I’m not sure this really needed to be put out in theaters, and would have been better suited for a straight to DVD release.
The 2-disc set includes a whole bunch of extras! There’s an 80 minute deleted movie, but a lot of the animation isn’t finished. Like for instance, the mouths aren’t animated in it. Plus, you have seen a lot of the stuff already, it was just in different spots in the movie or in the deleted scenes section. I still thought it was great to include that though. I thought the best thing on the extras was the special with Shake and Meatwad going over the deleted scenes. It was almost as funny as the movie itself. The alternate endings were pretty good as well. You can see how the movie ended if all three main characters turned into zombies. It’s definitely interesting to see what the creators had in store for us if they didn’t use the theatrical ending. There’s a lot more stuff on both disc like music videos, galleries, interviews, trailers and more!
If you’re a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, you’ll love this movie. If you never saw an episode…eh, you’d better stay away from this DVD because you’ll probably be confused and want to turn off the movie halfway through. I liked Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters For DVD in spots but I thought it could have been a lot better in the end.
