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.

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.

A disposable trifle of fleeting rewards that - like many a feature built around a "Saturday Night Live" sketch - shows its seams after three minutes.

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.

a strange cross between Get Shorty and Office Space, yet having its own unique flavor

Everything about this amateurishly made unpleasant gross-out comedy stinks and is degrading.

I laughed, and frequently. There are also images I can now never forget, and kind of want to. Is this what it was like for all those people I introduced, kicking and screaming, to Aqua Teen Hunger Force?

As co-directors, [Wareheim and Heidecker] handle the rhythm well and smoothly integrate their trademark 'clip comedy'.

A nauseating child's nightmare of Sisyphean despair.

Maybe I'm missing the joke. Hell, maybe I'm the punch line, since I couldn't find any good ones in this borderline unwatchable motion picture.

At one point, a character says: "Let the brown foaming mess wash all over you." Whatever you are imagining happening at this juncture, I promise you it's worse.

Eye for Film

An unapologetically fan-only experience that might have found more success as a series of YouTube clips than a fully-fledged 94-minute movie.

Ultra Culture

If the film is intended as a viciously satirical jab at Hollywood gentrification, it certainly hits its mark. It just isn't at all enjoyable to watch.

The List

Not nearly as endearing, nor as funny, as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job, Billion Dollar Movie is likely to become a cult hit, but nothing more.

It's all too appropriate that this thing is narrated by Michael Gross.

About as funny as discovering that you have cancer, AIDS and a brain tumor all on the same day.

Creative Loafing

"Billion Dollar Movie" is proof positive that having friends is a lot more important than having talent in Hollywood.

Tim and Eric were reportedly gleeful at mass audience walkouts during a recent Sundance screening, and they probably delight in savage reviews, bearing them with pride. Well, congrats, guys: You suck.

I'll be greatly surprised if anything this bad comes along again this year -- or any other year, come to that.

Audience Reviews for Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie

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 videos. 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 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.

Super Reviewer


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.
