My wife and I are big T&E fans... I'll admit that I'm a much bigger fan than my wife, but we both love their work on TGTTM and T&EASGJ!, not to mention the many other pies they have their fingers in. I have watched every episode of the aforementioned shows so many times that I'm surprised that there's room for anything in my brain *aside* from Tim and Eric quotes at this point.

Now that B$M is out, the Internets are filling with 5- or 10-star reviews from other fellow fans. So I guess I'll be the first to say that we were both a little let down by the movie.

A lot of folks have commented that this is "just like Awesome Show." I agree and disagree, and on both fronts it's not necessarily a 100% good thing. A great number of the gags are things that have been effectively recycled from past Awesome Show episodes. Stretched out to cinema pace and viewed through the "clearer" eye of film, the recycled stuff doesn't work nearly as well as it did when new.

Meanwhile, the intertextual public-access / VHS-glitch stuff that makes so much of their comedy on TV doesn't quite jibe on the big screen, since there really is no cinematic parallel to the raw, unintentionally hilarious crappiness of public access (unless you consider Birdemic to be mainstream cinema). T&E seem to have wisely recognized this, and have (mostly) kept the broken- / obsolete-tech humor to segments that are based around the third-party viewing of TV formats. But it's sorely missed... and when it's present, it looks pretty odd (as opposed to funny).

The plot is a ridiculous afterthought, effectively, and I don't think any T&E fan would reasonably expect otherwise. T&E have left room for as many pokes at big / dumb mainstream cinema tropes as possible.

That's the most disappointing thing about this film, is the missed opportunity. I had thought the plot would be about them making a billion dollar movie, doing their usual nonsense such as commonly found on their TIM AND ERIC AWESOME SHOW GREAT JOB. Instead *pardon the spoiler here* the movie barely touches on that and instead focuses mainly on the duo running a run down mall. I guess part of the anti-humor comedy here is they don't even follow the implied plot of the movie title! Anyways, It still manages to creep in all sorts of funny classic Tim and Eric style shorts, such as commercials for certain shops or products, just not nearly as much as the Awesome show does, nor as funny.

It made me laugh but not nearly as often as their Awesome show does. I think that is what most Tim and Eric fans ended up thinking. A poor use of a green lit movie, poor use of high profile actors *such as Will Farrel". I laugh hysterically at the Awesome show, so it's a little disappointing how this film turned up. The Awesome show didn't need to be R-rated to be funny either... like way funnier. A lot of the R-rated content in this film feels like it was added just to get cheap laughs, instead of coming up with the level of genius anti-humor they have in the Awesome Show. This movie definitely contains some very mature *or is it immature?* content, far beyond the normal show, so be warned.

Ok, not a bad film, had some great laughs, and it was certainly imaginative. I would watch more movies by them if they were only this good, I just hope they get another shot, and do something epic next time, or better yet just get back to making more seasons of the AWESOME SHOW GREAT JOB!

Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie accomplishes something very remarkable, something I don't think any other comedy has achieved: it had me giggling every time I stopped to consider how the plot was developing. Here's the basic premise: Tim and Eric have been given a billion dollars by the Schlaaang corporation, run by the menacing Tommy Schlaaang (a very decrepit-looking Robert Loggia), to direct a hit film starring Johnny Depp. Rather than actually making a movie, the duo wastes the billion dollars on frivolous indulgences (including the $500,000 per week expenses of Jim Joe Kelly, a "personal shopper and spiritual guru" played by Zach Galifianakis), managing to produce only a three-minute short starring a Johnny Depp impersonator. Schlaang, naturally, is furious over his squandered fortune, and he demands that Tim and Eric find some way to repay the billion dollars or else suffer the consequences.

So what are Tim and Eric to do? What else? They decide to form a Public Relations partnership called Dobis ("We're boys...doing business...Dobis!") and set out to take ownership of and revive the failed S'Wallow Valley Mall, a surreal, post-capitalist wasteland where a handful of change-resistant store owners sell (or don't sell) such consumer items as swords and used toilet paper. The mall is run by hucksterish Damien Weebs (Will Ferrell), who promises Tim and Eric a billion dollars for their efforts but is unable to do so without winking portentously (even while attempting to forcibly hold his eyes open).
