Best Commitment to Bizarro Humor

The Movie Version of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"

Staff Pick

You can say a lot of things about the MOVIE VERSION OF “AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE,” the flagship show of Adult Swim on the Atlanta-based Cartoon Network. Sure, the cinematic adventures of a talking milk shake, box of french fries and wad of meat turned out to be nonsensical, maddening, deliberately tedious and seemingly targeted at the totally stoned. You cannot, however, accuse the film of selling out its unique brand of humor for the sake of mass movie appeal. TV-creators-turned-film-directors Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis unquestionably stayed true to their instincts that made “Aqua Teen” a late-night hit. Even if you don’t get the joke, you have to salute their integrity.
