From the looks of the first few minutes of this film, it seems like it’s going to be a fun time. After one of those goofy concessions-stand promos where a soda, a popcorn bag and a hot dog sing a jingle about eating snacks, another group of snacks delivers their own angry, punk version. The lyrics are hysterical, and it’s a funny riff on an old joke. Then, Aqua Teen becomes a truly boring movie, a disappointment for fans and the uninitiated alike. I’ve laughed hard at nearly every episode of the Cartoon Network Adult Swim cartoon. A box of fries (Frylock), a milkshake (Master Shake) and a meatball (Meatwad) have a series of unimportant adventures, mostly involving their cranky New Jersey neighbor (Carl). It’s very random humor that works well in TV-snippet form. As a movie? Not so much. They try to tell the origin story of the Aqua Teens, but it’s just not that interesting. This movie needed more Carl. He’s reduced to practically nothing here.
