Various articles describe Tim and Eric's style as 'avant garde' but we remain unconvinced.
| Original Score: 1/5
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.
| Original Score: B+
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.
| Original Score: B
A disposable trifle of fleeting rewards that - like many a feature built around a "Saturday Night Live" sketch - shows its seams after three minutes.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
It would be insulting to refer to "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" as amateurish - insulting to amateurs everywhere.
| Original Score: 0/4
At times, the movie has the look and feel of the cheaply made late-night commercials that it mercilessly, and occasionally hilariously, mocks.
| Original Score: 2/4
Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie isn't for everyone, but for the few, the brave, it's extremely strange and hilarious.
| Original Score: A-
If it's a Funny or Die movie, where's the "die" button?
What works for a two-minute sketch can blunder on the big screen. And for this feature-length comedy, it bombs.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 6.5/10
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
So bad, it's bad.
If the "Billion Dollar" idea was to attract new viewers, someone should get their money back.
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.
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
With limitless absurdity comes a kind of glossy-eyed meaninglessness and extreme tastelessness.
In every swelling musical cue, Billion Dollar Movie displays open contempt for friendship, family, love, sex, heroism, and everything lofty and beautiful that multiplex movies have reduced to cant.
Adult Swim's cult series makes awkward stab at the big screen.
Even fans of their Cartoon Network series or those simply familiar with the pair via YouTube will likely find the extended version of their pathos-and-pain-driven comedy hard to digest.
