Bruce Campbell As A Chicken Nugget!! "Fucks!", "Shits!", And "Bleeps" Ahoy!! It's AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE: THE MOVIE!!
A reader sent this in after a test screening of the AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE movie.
I'm really in no position to comment on any of this; the series freaks the crap out of me and I now feel guilty consuming fast food -- fearing some sort of latent, vengeful sentience.
Here's a report from the screening...
Hey, didn't see any reports on this yet. Lots of huge spoilers here.
Last night at the Mall of Georgia just outside of Atlanta they held what we were told was the first ever screening of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie. They told us some of the music and animation were temporary, and it was lacking opening and closing credits, but otherwise it looked mostly complete.
As for the movie itself, I really enjoyed it. I was worried going in that the fast pace of the 15 minute episodes wouldn't be able to sustain itself through a 90 minute movie, but they managed to pull it off.
As reported before, the story revolves around the origin of the Aqua Teens, which somehow involves an exercise machine, Neil Pert from Rush, and a slice of talking watermelon voiced by Chris Kattan.
As a fan of the show, I got just about everything I could want out of a movie version. All of the regular characters make an appearance, with the Cybernetic Ghost and the Plutonians featured heavily, but Time Lincoln (as seen in the closing credits), the Mooninites, and MC Pee Pants all have parts as well.
Also showing up briefly is the missing 4th member of the Aqua Teens, a chicken nugget going by the name of Chicken Bittle played by none other Bruce Campbell himself.
As with most of the episodes, the ending is completely ridiculous and comes out of nowhere with the last scene finally revealing the mother of the Aqua Teens as a talking burrito with huge breasts, followed immediately by the closing credits.
The humor seemed a little bit more adult than the show, and "fuck" and "shit" were uttered a few times, but they kept it subtle.
Oddly, some of the cursing was bleeped out while other instances were left in (which I must say was more entertaining), so it's really hard to say how it will end up in the final version.
Overall, it delivered pretty much everything I could have wanted from an ATHF movie and I think fans of the show will really love it. They didn't tell us when it would finally be released, but with everything looking as good as it did, hopefully the wait won't be too much longer.
Thanks for the write-up!

I don't possibly see how this could be a movie. I like about 3/4 of the episodes of the show, but a movie just seems like it would be pushing it.

Meatwad, Shake, and Fry-guy on the big screen? What more could you ask for?

Bruce Cambell + Meatwad= Greatness. Throw in some Confederate Soldier Zombie robots and this could be the best project ever.

I've never heard about Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I really must be getting out of touch with things. *sigh* Is it any good? What's the premise? Honestly, this entire article made no sense to me whatsoever. How weird.
Aug. 3, 2006, 9:59 a.m. CST
not really. World Trade Center is the bad movie, Oliver Stoned is the debil.
Aug. 3, 2006, 10 a.m. CST
And it's almost finished? Jeez. Count me stoked.

Best episode ever. Discuss.

But I'd say Space Conflict From Beyond Pluto gets close if only because of the line "Oh yes, won't you please, save us, from all of zee money?"

Ignignot: We are Mooninites from the inner core of the Moon. Ur: You said it right! Ignignot: Our race is hundreds of years beyond yours. Ur: Man, you hear what he's sayin'? Ignignot: Some would say that the Earth is *our* moon. Ur: *We're* the Moon! Ignignot: But that would belittle the name of our Moon, which is the Moon.

They're pretty funny on the Danger Doom CD, easily one of my favorite music releases in recent years. When I gave it to a couple friends who are big fans they loved it.
Aug. 3, 2006, 11:10 a.m. CST
"That was no Gramma, boy that was a grocery bag." "But you just a box--" "I just a WHAT, bitch?" "Y-you're the duke of New York! A-number one!" "You say it LOUDER, boy!" "DUKE OF NEW YORK!!! A-NUMBER ONE!!!" "Ha ha haaa, yeahhh!" Can't wait.

I'm a Brit and an American friend recommended this to me so i managed to find an episode and... i don't get it, i'm not saying i thought it was good or bad, i found the concept quite interesting but is it something i need to stick with. Is there a point where it suddenly clicks?

...representative of the hilarity to be had from this series (and, it appears, the movie). "Hello Cleveland!" "I am...people person." "I am lawyer, bitch!" "I rule you!" "But...motion pictures cost 10 dollars. And what about popped corn?" One of my favorite eppys ever, and I can't even recall if it was season two or three. And who could possibly forget: "I am...sofa king...we...todd...ed." Oh, and foreignerbelt, everyone knows that Loverboy has always sucked. "I don't NEED no instructions to know how to ROCK!" I could amuse myself just htinking about this show all day.

tha is gold. I think people are just haters about the animation of the show, and dont think that something with even lamer animation than south park can be any good...but it is.... fuckin 100 times better.

Inignot: "Our god is an Indian who can turn into a wolf and..." Err: "Man, that's Wolfen, man." Inignot: "Yes, well Wolfen will come after you, with his razor" First Simpsons, then Reno-911, and now this. I guess we should be glad to be able to get these, since next year we'll have to endure 'Little Man 2 - Back in the Hood'.

I registered this account SOLELY to address that whole "pert" thing. It's one thing to SAY it wrong (It's pronounced PEARt (like the sweet and delicious fruit. Please, Americans, I know the Canadian language is strange and exotic and frightens us here in Bush's america, but can we TRY and pay the GREATEST LIVING ROCK MUSICIAN just a HAIR (which ALSO rhymes with pear)of respect?

Is the best rock drummer working. Ian Pace and Virgil Donati aren't bad either. Sure ol' what-is-face does have fine solos, but his work with music leaves a lot to be desired.

"Shut up bitch! Go get beer for me lawyer!" *** Meatwad: "This creature here wanted to get married, but I had to tell her it just wasn't right" Shake: "Hahaha. That's not a chick. Look, no boobies." *** "You have to close your eyes. That's the only way the hot chicks can see you." I am so stoked for this movie. Adding Bruce Campbell just makes it even better.

and the events happened in real time! fuck yeah I had wondered what had happened to this film. yess!!Shake is da man. "how would you like it if I went to your country and didn't cash your checks there? you woudn't because you'd be here!"..classic!"Go back to your strip malls were Values are KING!"

And sadly since that dude playing Cpt. Murphy died there will never be a feature film. Many people think that Aqua Teen is in some way funnier and better than Sealab. You, of course, are wrong. It's just that simple. But we all believe hundreds of things about life that are wrong or can never be proved as correct so don't let it sweat you. Just don't be really vocal about thinking Aqua Teen is better because it's better to say nothing than to open your mouth and condem yourself as a fool. Harry can vouch for me, he was on Sealab weren't you! You konw what I'm talking about. Tourist.

Cannot get enough of it... A mate of mine from New York got me into it, I managed to collect all the eps and I dont think 2 days have passed since I got them that I aint watched at least on episode. I've tried to convince my cronies to watch it but they aint biting - Am I the only fan of ATHF in the UK? Either way, I am completely over my moon about this movie!! Bruce Campbell being involved makes it almost too good to be true! Now I know a lot of people on this site arent into downloading movies, but I'm gonna zap this one down at the first opportunity - If I am the only fan of ATHF in the UK then I dunno if I can afford to distribute it on DVD myself...
Aug. 4, 2006, 11:20 a.m. CST
in the Captain Murphy days, but it's suffered considerably since the loss of that voice actor. Still, I think Venture Bros. and Boondocks are the best things on adult swim. Venture Bros. movie next? Please?
Aug. 4, 2006, 12:46 p.m. CST
Cannot wait for the ATHF movie. And yes, THE VENTURE BROS. needs to be a feature film with excessive amounts of the Monarch, Brock, Molotov Cocktease and Doctor Orpheus.

London-based ATHF fan here! You are not alone, brother. Heard about it for a while before I actually saw the show. In fact it was the Dangerdoom album that raised my interest in the show. Been catching it on Bravo, but UK is SO behind. Need to import the DVDs. I can't get enough of Venture Bros, Sealab 2021, ATHF and Robot Chicken. The UK deserved AS years ago, and we just got a skimmed down version on Bravo! Ah well, import DVDs and "transatlantic cable" will do.

I think anything "MC pee pant" related sucks. The fact that this is in the movie makes me worried. In fact, although I LOVE the show, because it's so experimental, it can be terrible sometimes. I mainly love the dialogue and shakes reactions to situations, and his bullying of meatwad.
