The audience for the new Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie can roughly be divided into fanatics convinced it'll be the most awesome movie ever, and casual fans worried that 87 minutes of the show's balls-to-the-wall smartass surrealism constitutes roughly 77 minutes too many. Like the recent Music And Lyricsit opens with a sequence perfectly executed enough to ensure that nothing that follows will be anywhere near as good. Fittingly, the opening functions as a stand-alone bit, an aggressive parody of movie concession-stand ads delivered by the angriest group of anthropomorphic foodstuffs ever assembled.
Its language of image and sound rejects everything, so completely and violently divorced from any normal concept of narrative thinking it becomes Dadaesque. The musical number that prefaces the movie proper, in which a band of badass concession-stand items play a metal song about movie-theater etiquette, is unquestionably the shit. Alas, the rest of the film is not so easy to defend, given its almost total lack of coherence.

Nothing else in "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters" — certainly not the labored title, which sounds like would-be "Borat" — is as funny as the first five minutes. Let me qualify that: not much that I have seen in movies recently made me laugh as hard as the opening bit, in which a parade of singing cartoon movie snacks is disrupted by a caterwauling death-metal rendition of familiar pre-film warnings: don't talk or use your cellphone or otherwise disrupt the motion picture experience. And try to stay awake.
