"Mmm-kay? That isn't funny by itself. Jokes ARE required."
An open letter to Mike Judge.Dear Mike, I like Beavis and Butthead. King of the Hill makes me laugh every so often, and I like the characters on it an awful lot. I even remember seeing your "Milton" shorts on SNL a while back. I didn't know you did them, but they always struck me as funny. So believe me, I was excited about this movie. I was in the right frame of mind. The guy behind me was one of the funniest hecklers during the coming attractions I'd ever heard (and mind you, I'd heard a lot). So I was geared up for this one. You dropped the ball, Mike. It was supposed to be a satire, I understand, not an out-and-out comedy. But get this, Mike: Satire should be able to make you laugh while it's criticizing. Look at Spinal Tap. Look at Network. I could see where you were trying to be funny, but it just wasn't working for you. I know it could have been funny - the commercials made it look great. But somehow, those same moments that were so brilliant in that thirty-second commercial fell flat on the screen. It was just plain dull. It was like someone reading the script of "The Naked Gun" in an absolute monotone voice. You can tell when it's SUPPOSED to be funny, but it ain't. But you're a funny guy, Mike. I'm watching Beavis and Butthead as I'm writing this. I'll be quite happy to see the Beavis and Butthead sequel when it comes out. But stick to cartoons, my friend. You just don't know how to make real people act funny yet.
Love always, HawkboyP.S. What's the deal with all the rap on the soundtrack?
