Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie
2 stars
Directed by Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim
Starring Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly
Rated R

If your love for poop jokes is matched only by your affection for non sequiturs, you must see "Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie" right now.

Otherwise, stay far, far away from this flick, which unleashes upon the movie world the unhinged humor of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the brains behind the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim sketch-comedy TV series "Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!"

In their surreal, absurdist fashion, Tim and Eric - playing characters named Tim and Eric - set out to restore a rundown mall run by a creepy deadbeat (Will Ferrell).

This is some kind of place - populated by a filthy man-child vagrant (John C. Reilly), a dangerous wolf, a used-toilet paper store and a bizarre spiritual healing center devoted to a stomach-turning New Age method called "Shrim."

The movie gleefully pushes boundaries, but it's a collection of a few worthy skit ideas and lots of non-starters in search of a unified whole.
