A and A's Movie A Day

Watching movies until we run out.

Movie 91 – Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters for DVD – May 30th, 2010

Have you seen any of Aqua Teen Hunger Force? The show, I mean. Okay, now take a season and string the episodes together and loosely connect them and you’d get something slightly more coherent than this. It starts with a very metal pre-movie short about how Satan will rain acid down your throat and turn your guts into snakes if you make noise during the movie. Then there’s a bedtime story Shake tells that incorporates the stills from the closing credits of the show. And then there’s the movie. And it has a plot, sort of. I guess. In a way. It involves robots and an exercise machine and the destruction of the Earth. There are many characters from the show, like the Cybernetic Ghost and MC Peepants and background cameos of a lot more, because they’re all about the fanservice.

This is going to be a short review, sorry. But it’s a short movie and if I go on much longer I’ll just end up rambling as much as the movie does, and we don’t want that. The movie is 86 minutes long. 86 minutes. That’s less than an hour and a half long. And then there’s 80 minutes of deleted footage on the bonus disc. That’s impressive in a cracky sort of way. But the deleted footage isn’t part of this, so all we’ve got is the movie itself. It’s sort of an origin story, but only in the last twenty minutes and it’s a far cry from taking it seriously. But then I didn’t expect serious or coherent from this. I expected rambling and dick jokes and Shake being a jackass. I expected fanservice and lots of callbacks to the show. I expected weirdness and I got it and I like it. Sure, it’s totally all over the place and it rambles and makes things more confused instead of explaining anything, but it wouldn’t be Aqua Teen Hunger Force if it made sense. It’s not for everyone, but it is for me.

I don’t know if it’s even worth trying to explain the plot. There’s this whole thing about a giant robotic exercise machine and how it should never be made and Dr. Weird’s involved and either he made the Aqua Teens or Frylock’s his father and who the hell knows, you know? And everyone bands together to make the exercise machine and then it destroys stuff and Carl gets eviscerated and the Aqua Teens and Dr. Weird fight and then Ignignokt and Err show up and there’s a melon that wants their real estate and their mother is a nine layer bean burrito voiced by Tina Fey.

See what I mean about the plot? As Shake puts it: “Well! That. Explains. A lot.”
