AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Pleasantly strange and surprisingly thoughtful, Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling succeeds as both a nostalgic look back and a healthy hop forward.

Movie Info

After being in space for around 20 years, Rocko and his friends attempt to conform to an even more modern life in O-Town, where coffee shops are on every corner, food trucks offer multi-layered tacos, touch-screen O-Phones are being upgraded on a near-constant basis, an instant-print kiosk has replaced Rocko's old job at Kind-of-a-Lot-O-Comics, and radioactive energy drinks turn their consumers into mutants.

"Rocko" was always self-aware, and "Static Cling" goes all in, with a metafictional recounting of its own rebirth.

May be one of Netflix's weirdest decisions yet.

Static Cling pokes delightful fun at itself and its existence, utilizing the "rebooting old property" concept to make some solid, if easy, jabs at the soulless, corporate nature behind most reboots.

Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling was nostalgia resurrection done right. I enjoyed pretty much everything about it.

Some plot threads . . . carry a Chaplin-esque anxiety instead of easy anger. But while its politics come in a tsunami of gags, its contradictions are timely -- and oddly touching.

Static Cling is ballsy enough to champion the marginalised and smart enough to accomplish it without abandoning the show's lovably strange approach. Murray and his team absolutely have a hit on their hands.
