If you're in the right frame of mind or if you've inhaled the right substance I guess you might find this stuff hilarious. I laughed, then I grew restless, then I grew sleepy, then I just wanted it to end.
[Creators] Willis and Maiellaro simply do not have enough material to fill a movie that clocks in at 86 minutes. Too much humor falls flat and there are too many stretches where not much happens at all.
It gives me no pleasure to report that Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters is fairly excruciating to sit through -- because I'm writing this as a fan of the TV series that spawned the movie.
Fans of Aqua Teen who couldn't wait for the next TV season? You'll likely love it. The uninitiated? It would be a lot cheaper to watch five minutes of the Cartoon Network. Save your money for some higher-quality, nonanimated fast food.
Fittingly, the sequences when the movie actually tries to tell a story are when things bog down and fall apart. Much better is when the movie stops trying to make sense and just lets the pop-art absurdities fly.
