I'm watching Billion Dollar Movie right now... I'd say if you really like Tim and Eric its worth watching, but its definitely got the feel of an SNL film where a 5 minute skit is extended to 90 minutes.

you know... they kind of never actually do this with their SNL movies. They always try to expand the universe of the skit which is where it gets really boring. Like the coneheads going to pta meetings and shit.

I just watched teh Billion Dollar Movie - I'm not sure it "worked"

The Cheerfull Turtle (Latham Green), Thursday, 10 May 2012 17:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

I couldn't get through the movie. Turned it off.

Check It Out, on the other hand, has been great.

Yeah, I've come to the conclusion that sketch performers (which is sorta kinda what T&E are) should probably just not make movies. Monty Python are a really rare exception, but I think that's because they came to movies with solid ideas beyond, "Hey, let's make a movie!"

Obviously, I mean sketch performers shouldn't just basically make a film adaptation of their sketch show. I have no problem with them making films in general (I mean, what would Bridesmaids have been without Heidecker?).

their error was they should have asked me to come and guide them. I could have saved the movie. But they don't know I exist yet.

The Cheerfull Turtle (Latham Green), Thursday, 10 May 2012 19:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

The problem with the movie I think was a lot of their signature bits were kind of old by that point. Otherwise greater analysis is required for me to specifically comment on it not working. I agree though...

The one scene that practically saved the movie was the meeting they had with Will Ferrell's character in his office. Loved it.

Yeah, it's a lot like Brain Candy and Run Ronnie Run inasmuch as there are a lot of great little moments, but a lot of great little moments in a suspension of meh does not a good movie make.

what I liek best about the show is the parody commercial, odd editing and effects, and the extras , not really the acting of tim and eric or poo

i thought billion $ movie was pretty good! i'm not a superfan of the tv show (i like it but haven't seen all the eps) so maybe it's because i'm not coming from that perspective? i wasn't crazy about the big gross-out moments (cock-piercing and shrim bath) but i laughed a lot.

i just knew there would be like 30 posts praising that Paul Rudd sketch. so pitch perfect in a way they usually aren't. these guys are great with surrealism but simply chopping up a bunch of scenes or repeating lines over and over isn't really it. for example the "iJammer" sketch which is brilliant for about 45 seconds and then turns boring and weird

frogbs, Monday, 16 July 2012 14:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

My humor isn't scatological either, but it was funny watching a shit-smeared Eric chase after a g-string clad Tim through a rundown mall and falling into the fountain.

Also going out on the town and sawing your arm off.

But yeah. Sketch comics have a hard time making movies for some reason.

my new theory is they made that movei like when Dylan made "Self-portrait" in order to make their fans go away becuase they are tired of them

The Cheerfull Turtle (Latham Green), Monday, 16 July 2012 14:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Ouch! I at least liked the meeting the mall manager (Will Ferrell) had with Tim and Eric.

Evan, Monday, 16 July 2012 14:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

The problem with the movie was that none of the ideas were fresh and the pacing was off.

Evan, Monday, 16 July 2012 14:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

the meeting with Will Ferreell is the best part probably - mostly for Will Ferrell's weird reactions

The Cheerfull Turtle (Latham Green), Monday, 16 July 2012 15:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

Top Gun bit as well!

Evan, Monday, 16 July 2012 16:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

And I think Tim & Eric excel at parodying awkward conversation/small talk cliches.

Has this board lost its fascination with hipsters? Tim & Eric's take on them has been out for like 10 months.

it was really sad. i felt a strange empathy toward swanson. even shed a solitary tear for the scene at the end, no lie. i have seen reviews criticizing that last scene but personally felt it to be very poignant and bittersweet.

i have a few heady ~~theories~~ or whatever about the movie and the swanson character. i think his sadness goes beyond his dying dad; i read a lot into the scenes with the sister-in-law. it just seems like there's sadness in the family (brother in the looney bin, AWOL mom) that has inspired the one remaining family member, the sister-in-law, to cope with deep numbness. and i think a lot of his interactions with people stem from frustration with that numbness. trying to open the sleeping girl's eyes - "wake up!". poking around the unconscious hospital patient. he spends so much time just trying to get reactions out of people. when he does those few rare times, he is at a loss, but i think that possibility really excites him.

i was also curious about the whole water thing in the movie. found it curious how so much of the movie is him being around water but not in it, which changes at the end. i know it seems facile to read such overt symbols into the movie but alverson by his own admission is a pretty deliberate director.

what was up with the random disintegration loops? and the random shot of the empire state building during the random disintegration loops scene? i didn't get how that fit in at all, apart from it being a sad tune for a sad movie.

"the comedy" was really great

congratulations (n/a), Friday, 30 November 2012 19:09 (2 years ago) Permalink

saw it last night with jaymc and je55e. at the end some people in the theater applauded and i couldn't tell if it was sincere (we were in the "artsy" movie theater) or if people were consciously/unconsciously mimicking the theatrically ironic behavior they had just seen in the movie, it was very weird.

other thoughts:

* most disturbing sex scene in a movie in a while
* heidecker is fantastic in this
* scene in the black bar was the one that felt a little played-out, just a slightly more acidic/knowing version of "clueless white guy tries to buddy up with black dudes" scene from a bunch of other movies

though apparently mayhem lauren was one of the bar patrons

Mmm...was hoping I could wait to see this in my home because low $$$, but I love Heidecker and the reviews are eclipsing my good sense.

you can see it in your home already, it's on VOD and itunes

That's good info, but I have no cable or computer or credit card, so. And I'm back in Chicago so the actual theater is really the easiest way (he justified to himself).

last night was its final night at facets, don't think it's playing anywhere else so you're SOL, sorry

Shit I never saw it.

Evan, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 21:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

is it? I have heard such mixed things on it but I would guess that a lot of the negative reviews are from those who just don't like Tim & Eric style humor (which is a lot more understandable than people like me who do like it)

frogbs, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 21:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

Tim Heidecker is my favorite comedian.

on a side note i've been enjoying those tim heideker at the movies videos he's doing with the neil hamburger guy.

Spectrum, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 21:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

its not really tim and eric style humor, I think?

puff puff post (uh oh I'm having a fantasy), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 21:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

its basically a cross between the master and girls and ends up better than both, but then again I'm only like halfway thru it and its playing in the background as I type

Greg Turkington... I totally did not make the connection! Of course that's Neil Hamburger, right? He is so so reserved on "On Cinema, At The Cinema" I didn't even realize it.
