Two would-be filmmakers receive $1 billion to make a movie, only to see their dream run off course.
" Needless to say, this freewheeling parade of bizarreness is not everyone's cup of shrim. Chances are good that the people whose cup of shrim it is already know who they are. "
" See it in the right sick frame of mind, and "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie'' can be shockingly and terribly hilarious. Or not. "
" Had Billion Dollar Movie been just eight minutes on the Funny or Die website, where Heidecker and Wareheim have often appeared, it might have worked. "
" Fans will love the funny and subversive moments; anyone who didn't "get" them premakeover may simply feel like they've been sitting in a "brown bath" for 93 minutes. Don't ask. "
" The laughs dry up even as the gross-out material grows more, uh, fluid. "
" Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie isn't for everyone, but for the few, the brave, it's extremely strange and hilarious. "
" The vicious mirth is hit-or-miss but contagious. "
" A lazy assemblage of sketch- comedy raunch, mock-schlock TV ads, and ideas that even the writers of Mall Cop and Observe and Report would have tossed. "
" A disposable trifle of fleeting rewards that - like many a feature built around a "Saturday Night Live" sketch - shows its seams after three minutes. "
" Tim and Eric's man-child characters, who look at the world with wide eyes and total trust, must be an acquired taste. And while fans of the television show may enjoy this movie, this reviewer did not. "
" What works for a two-minute sketch can blunder on the big screen. And for this feature-length comedy, it bombs. "
" With limitless absurdity comes a kind of glossy-eyed meaninglessness and extreme tastelessness. "
" It would be insulting to refer to "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" as amateurish - insulting to amateurs everywhere. "
" Even with a measly $3 million dollar price tag, Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie feels like the work of comedic outlaws getting away with something. "
" If it's a Funny or Die movie, where's the "die" button? "
" So bad, it's bad. "
" They've gathered a cult following by doing comedy sketches that were deliberately bad, and now they've made a movie that is more of the same for 92 minutes, and it must have taken them a great deal of work to maintain their low standard. "
" At times, the movie has the look and feel of the cheaply made late-night commercials that it mercilessly, and occasionally hilariously, mocks. "
" Various articles describe Tim and Eric's style as 'avant garde' but we remain unconvinced. "
" If the "Billion Dollar" idea was to attract new viewers, someone should get their money back. "
