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.

my dislexia read "parody of bizarreness" which I'd hazard is even more pertinent. Tim and Eric are so post-post-modern that their humor encompasses a parody of the bizarre. Which is to say, they see our bizarre and raise us a multitude of absurdity.

i love tim and eric, i have respect for two best friends who can act out their most ludicrous ideas for the world at large on the big screen like this. that said, i was disappointed. the movie felt, well, crass, even for them. their sketch show usually has a certain charm about it, their humor something more akin to understanding them as people than it is funny on the surface. the attractiveness of tim and eric comes from understanding their sense of humor, and that's what makes their sketches so funny. sure, there is the punning and funny visuals, but tim and eric are so open that you can't help but feel like you're one of their friends, so like watching your friends goof of is what makes them so charming. so, 'billion dollar movie' comes off a little strange if you're a fan. i, for one, already know what they're capable of and didn't really see them stretch their comedic legs as much as i would have liked. it's strange to see them try to apply their formula to a feature length film, and doesn't feel like one long skit, but rather many punctuated by weirdly funny moments, but the majority falling flat. i can't give this film five stars as much as i would love to reward them with that. i just felt like 'billion dollar movie' was too gimmicky. they have established their gross out humor and i was expecting something a little more subtle to be explored with the longer running time. bizarre, yes, funny, yes, but too over to top and obviously trying to be. i just would have liked to see something a little more from the heart instead of just reiterating their brand of humor for 94 minutes.
