This animated feature-length film is the big screen adaptation of the popular but eternally low-brow MTV cartoon series "Beavis and Butt-Head."
The plot, such as it is, has the two crude teenagers waking up one morning to find their television set has been stolen. They embark on a road trip across America in order to recover their TV. The film is a road trip movie, giving the two characters ample opportunities to ply their brand of humor in many new locations.
While traveling by bus with a tour group of senior citizens, the characters are shown briefly in Utah. The scenes there lat only about 15 seconds. Although Utah is predominantly Mormon, the film has no overt references to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or its members.
A significant portion of the film takes place in the Southwestern United States, particularly Las Vegas (a city originally founded by Latter-day Saint settlers). The characters also spend time in Arizona, where they stop at the Grand Canyon. Beavis and Butt-Head also pass through Idaho, Colorado and Wyoming. As is the case with Utah, the first permanent English-speaking settlements in all of these states were founded by Latter-day Saints.
The bus stops in Arches National Park, where the senior citizens pose in front of a natural arch. Butt-Head takes a photograph of the them. The photograph is shown, revealing that his thumb was partially over the lens when he took the picture. The photo is also crooked and poorly framed.
Meanwhile, federal agents are shown meeting with each other and looking at a map of the United States, trying to track down Beavis and Butt-Head.
The bus is then shown travelling for a second across Utah. A montage of shots shows a number of other "Welcome To" state border signs, including signs for Idaho and Wyoming, along with Beavis and Butt-Head standing in front of a number of "Now Entering" signs for non-Utah cities and towns, the names of which can be combined into crude phrases that the boys are fond of. Examples include "Butte" (in Montana).
This is followed by an extended scene in at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, where the boys view the famous Old Faithful geyser.
After spending time in the restroom at Yellowstone, Beavis and Butt-Head get back on a bus, but it turns out that it is not the senior citizens tour bus. Instead, it is a bus full of Catholic nuns. The bus travels back through Utah, before stopping at an old Spanish fort in Arizona or New Mexico.
Note that in the screenplay excerpt below, "B&B" is an abbreviation for "Beavis and Butt-Head."

[Later in the script, Beavis and Butt-Head stop at Yellowstone National Park, to see Old Faithful. After spending time in the restroom, they get back on a bus, but it turns out that it is not the senior citizens tour bus. Instead, it is a bus full of Catholic nuns. The bus travels back through Utah.] MONTAGE SONG BEGINS: INSERT: A RED LINE snakes through a map, pretty much retracing the route B&B took north. Down into Utah. INT. BUS - DAY A nun strums a guitar and sings. Butt-head head-bangs. The nuns around look uneasy. Nearby another nun reads the Bible to Beavis. BEAVIS Hey, Butt-Head, this book kicks ass! There's this talking snake and a naked chick and then this dude puts a leaf on his schlong! Heh heh heh. The nun next to Beavis is disgusted. INSERT: A RED LINE snakes down through Colorado.
