Why you should be excited: How to describe the brand of comedy orchestrated by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, they of Tim And Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! fame? The fellas themselves have encapsulated Adult Swim’s drug-trippy show as “the nightmare version of television,” and that’s rather spot-on; bewilderingly strange fake commercials, skits that barely look like they’d pass for quality on public access TV, and Photoshop-like graphics that give the impression of one’s tube suffering from a malfunctioning cable box—that’s what we’re dealing with here.
And for the show’s loyal following, Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie is a long, long time in the making. Like the duo’s TV series itself, their feature debut defies a general synopsis, but just know this: Both Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly co-star as a delusional shopping mall owner and a revolting dude who’s full of visible snot, respectively.
