Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters

Director:  Matt Maiellaro & Dave Willis
Year Released:  2007
Rating:  2.5

Dadaist 'big screen' adaptation of the cult cartoon on Cartoon Network about a dysfunctional family consisting of a milk shake, a French fry container and a wad of meat and their various non-adventures. It's hard developing a solid opinion on a movie so determined to not be a movie, constantly trying to avoid logic and plotting and playing out like a gigantic in-joke: it's a meta-movie, and one that all but asks its audience, "Can you believe they gave us money to make this?" I couldn't believe I paid $9 and saw it in the same theater I watched, say, Independence Day. Duchamp would have loved it.
