Various articles describe Tim and Eric's style as 'avant garde' but we remain unconvinced.

The laughs dry up even as the gross-out material grows more, uh, fluid.

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.

The vicious mirth is hit-or-miss but contagious.

If you're one of the many who just don't think [Tim and Eric are] very funny, there's little here that will change that opinion.

Audience Reviews for Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie


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 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 awkward 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.
