    Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is about as entertaining as a car alarm.

    Tim and Eric seem to think that making repetitious loud and annoying noises is the key to good humour. It's not. Their funniest joke seems to be spoofing bad power point presentations and training video... read mores. Again, it's not particularly funny. I feel sad for everyone they convinced to get involved in this awful film. Robert Loggia is old, he and William Atherton probably should have known better but as much as I like them I guess they need the money these days. I think Jeff Goldblum was tricked into it. Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis show just how unfunny they really are by getting involved, Ferrell in particular seeing as he also produced it. John C. Reilly is the biggest fool though as he is the only one here with an ounce of talent. Why he does this crap is beyond me. Truly one of the worst films I've ever seen and I don't say that lightly.

    After watching many of their skits through the years, I was very anticipated to see "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie," but I must say, that even though I had a blast watching this movie, it is nothing compared to the hilarity of their show. This film gives them an actual plot... read more which takes you out a bit, because their shows has all been about randomness. To be honest, I do not even think a feature film was necessary, but it was inevitable I guess. The writing in this film almost seem absent at times, which is fine, because that is pretty much what their show is, but the jokes are very hit and miss. Since everything in this film was intentional, I will give them major props in pulling it all off. I am not a huge fan of this film, but I really enjoy these guys!

    Cult TV comedians Tim & Eric are given a billion dollars to try to make a movie, squander it on hairdos and personal assistants, then try to make up the balance for their vicious corporate backers by rehabilitating an abandoned shopping mall overrun by wolves. Tim & Eric's awkwar... read mored brand of meta-humor is often fascinating, but the mean-spirited grossout jokes clash with and ultimately overwhelm the clever avant-garde jokes, making the movie something of a missed opportunity for the absurdist comedy cause. John Waters would approve, however.

    Tries too hard to be a movie, and forgets to do exactly what makes the show so great - forgoing conventional structure of any kind. As a result, Billion Dollar Movie is incredibly unfunny and woefully boring.

    The list of adjectives that this film inspires is long: immature, stupid, dumb, juvenile, spastic, revolting, incongruous, nihilistic, garbage...but in a good way. Tim and Eric step out of the shadow of their tremendously nerdy and semi-popular show on Adult Swim. With a thoughtl... read moreess script and a moorless decision to forgo their usual style, the film is a bland imitation of lesser comedies. Most of this instead hinges on our two protagonists, Tim and Eric. Both are interesting, creepy heroes, with their own seamless comedy, but they couldn't hold the massive responsibility of what this film requires. It's in the same vein as the adapted Reno 911! film, but with much more freedom now that they are away from television. Most of the hideous plot is nicely covered by a set of out of this world hilarious celebrity cameos from such greats as Zach Galifanakis as a fake guru, Will Ferrell as a crazed mall owner, and John C. Reilly as a gimpy invalid janitor who becomes the twosome's best friend and guinea pig. What I can say about it, in a positive way, is that it's surprising in places, and all for the right reasons. Certain important people die, cameos seem to be cut shorter than need be, love interests are far less clichà (C)d, even for the dumb comedy genre that this falls into, and it works well most of the time. Though it wasn't all too funny, not too interesting or smart, it did have its moments, its cavalcade of cameos and some strong jokes here and there, mostly cemented between gross out gags and mindless idiocy. It's best to watch their show beforehand, or Check It Out!, which is another one of their shows with John C. Reilly, which is their best work. (I think anyway.) Good for a mindless hour and a half at best.

    "Shrim. Sounds like 'shrimp'."

    Two guys get a billion dollars to make a movie, only to watch their dream run off course. In order to make the money back, they then attempt to revitalize a failing shopping mall.

    Posing as their own fashion/media-victim alter egos, Tim and Eric go on the run from Robert Loggia's corporate mogul-cum-mob-boss after squandering a billion dollars on a two minute film wherein a Johnny Depp lookalike parades around in a diamond suit before seducing an Angelina Jolie-alike waitress. This short is in itself a nod to the big-budget wedding/engagement films many blue chip movers and shakers commission for their families or themselves, movies Tim and Eric have seen and found excruciatingly funny. The subsequent plot - Tim and Eric hiding from Loggia as they take over management of a run down shopping mall - contains laughs for anyone who has gorged on a diet of straight to video Hollywood vile for the last twenty years. Perhaps this is the downside. So perfect a lampoon and straight recreation of a modern Z-class-movie is 'Billion Dollar Movie' that many have not been able to see the wood for the trees. You really do need to have a little insider knowledge of the low-end of the media business to catch some of the injokes and working in a video rental place for a decade may be a qualification to find the film truly hilarious.

    Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie

    Ridiculous, but funny

    Take it for what it is, if you even want to watch this movie, you already know what your expecting: dumb, R-rated, comedy, and that my friends is what this movie contains.

    Tim and Eric are failed film m... read moreakers, and in order to get one billion dollars to pay back their film expenses they decided to take over a hobo-town shopping center.

    There isn't much in this movie either than laughs. The acting is funny, the script is funny, everything is funny about this movie. There are some awesome cameos that include Will Ferrell and John C. Reily.

    Although it manages to make you laugh, this movie is at the same time, stupid, disgusting, and dumb. However, I knew that before I saw it, so if your are paying the money to go see this, I am hoping you know what to expect. So watch it if you are searching for some mega-dumb-epic-cheap-billion dollar movie.

    Eric: Shrim, that sounds like Shrimp

    Let me start by saying I like Tim and Eric. They have their own style of bizarre humor and I enjoy the things they create. But, they're not for everyone... which makes me like them more because they don't care what people think of them, they're going to keep creating their art (Y... read morees I said art). That all being said, this movie is not for everyone. This film has the shocks and may gross you out. Gross out humor isn't my favorite but I still enjoyed these parts. I loved 75% of this movie and the last 25% was okay, (I know that sounds weird but just go with it.) The cameos were freaking awesome and the commercials in the film were top-notch Tim and Eric. So overall, if you like different kinds of humor and/or you like Tim and Eric, watch this movie. If you don't... well then don't watch it. It was a very funny goof and a spoof.

    Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim bring their unique style of sketch comedy to the big-screen in Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. And, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, and Zach Galifianakis all stop by to make cameos. The story follows Tim and Eric as they try to make a billion ... read moredollars renovating a broken-down mall in order to repay a movie studio after their first film flops. Unfortunately, the comedy is real hit-and-miss, and sets new levels of raunchiness. Though some of characters are quite colorful and fun, they overstay their welcome. There are some incredibly hilarious moments in this film, but Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie doesn't have the talent or the material to sustain a 90 min. film.

    * out of ****

    There isn't a more proper way to begin my review of "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" than to express me unending admiration for the comic duo behind it. Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are gifted in the field of delivering random, awkward, inappropriate situ... read moreations to use as comedic material; and I like their Adult Swim original series, "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show: Great Job". The show itself is nothing more than brainless - but engaging - escapism for all those who are open-minded. The trouble with the movie is that it's brainless, but it can neither be called engaging or "escapism". To be escapism, I'd think some effort would have to have been put into the movie being mentioned; and in this case, little is offered up.

    I can already tell that this isn't going to be an easy write-up, so bear with me. I'm currently filled with an impeccable rage. I was looking forward to this movie from the moment that it was first announced, and so were the die-hard fans of the original show. I knew what to expect, I knew what I wanted to see; and frankly, that wasn't much. Just a lot of hilarious, random facial expressions and plenty of sufficient laughs brought on by the over-the-top absurdity that these two men so flawlessly tend to employ. Well, I got the facial expressions and some of the randomness; but you know what, I'm just going to come out and say it: this isn't funny.

    And yet, it tries so very hard to be. Consider the main plot, for example: Tim and Eric play themselves, having been given a billion dollars to produce their own feature film, only to screen the finished product (which ran for about 3 disappointing, underwhelming minutes) to their employers; ultimately met with his primal disapproval of the ways in which they spent all that money. In fear, the boys flee town and settle down somewhere in a run-down, wolf-infested mall; which they attempt to bring back to both attention and life in order to be given the option of coughing up the billion dollars that they owe the studio and save some lives - including theirs - in the process.

    There isn't much more to it. Tim heartlessly steals a janitor's young son (this is supposedly played out for laughs; there were none), the mall-bound canines attack pizza-donning decoys, and Eric finds himself a lady. Some of the plot elements are just so utterly ridiculous that they do indeed inspire some brief chuckles; although some are rather, should I say, cringe inducing. And that's just saying the least.

    I expect nothing more, or less, than all-out irreverence from the comedy duo of Tim and Eric; but their movie goes to extremes in an attempt to make us laugh. Sometimes, it was just too twisted for my taste; and that's coming from someone who self-admittedly has a very dark sense of humor. When Eric decides to pierce his penis; I knew the film had crossed a line, and it was one that had yet to be drawn. If that doesn't tell you something, then I don't know what will; perhaps the disgusting sex scene between Tim and Eric's love interest will do the trick.

    "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" is hopeless; a film lost in the creative freedom of its makers, and the excesses that it so joyously revels in. This is a movie so pointless, plot-less, and brainless that at moments; it becomes nearly unwatchable. I liked the cameos (Jeff Goldblum's was hilarious), I liked the cheesy effects that were brought over from the show to the movie, and of course, I liked the moments that actually felt the slightest bit like they were ripped from the collective minds of Tim and Eric; but I hated everything else. And I'm not exaggerating; I really despised just about every moment that was spent watching this film. I imagine that some of the show's avid fans will find something to enjoy here, and thus the cult of Tim and Eric will live on; but I'm betting on the possibility that those unassociated with Tim and Eric will be easily repelled, just like I was. And as I said; I like Tim and Eric when they have their sights set on smaller, more accessible (but still irreverent) things, but if their debut into the world of film tells me anything, it tells me to pray to the cinematic God that it's their last.
