Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters (2007)

I recently watched Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, a film which is most definitely for fans of the T.V. series and not for anyone else.

It is an amusing movie, with one of the nonsensical plots the series is known for, centering around a futuristic exercise machine threatens the city and the world. Prophesies are provided by the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future, who plots with the Plutonians against the Aqua Teens. Carl, Dr. Weird, Steve, MC Pee Pants, and the Mooninites also feature prominently in the movie, and you also get a glimpse into the origin of the Aqua Teens, which of course makes no sense at all.

Aside from the humor, the movie also features a little bit of good music, notably an appearance by the amazing Mastodon (also as food, like the Aqua Teens), who perform "Cut you Up With a Linoleum Knife." The Wikipedia article describes it this way:
The movie begins with a song by an animated quartet consisting of a bag of popcorn, a hot dog, a chocolate Popsicle and a cup of soda encouraging viewers, in a parody of the 1953 short film Let's All Go to the Lobby, to buy food from the concession stand, only to be interrupted by heavy metal band Mastodon—with Troy Sanders animated as a gum drop, Bill Kelliher as a pretzel, Brent Hinds as a box of Ice Caps, and Brann Dailor as a box of nachos—who warn the audience that bad movie etiquette will result in severe bodily harm or death.

In all, I have to give it only 2 out of 5 stars, and the reason is this kind of humor works well only in 15 minute increments, not over the course of nearly an hour and a half.
