Tim and Eric are the anti-establishment punks of the comedy world. They don’t care about wacky premises, the rule of three, or even the time-honored pattern of setup -> joke -> punchline. No, these two have their own comedic agenda. If you’ve never seen their act before, there’s an infamous Absolut Vodka ad they made with Zach Galifinakis that could effectively serve as their manifesto. The story goes that they were given full creative control over the ad, the only caveat being that they had to mention the product. This is what they made.
Interested in some Absolut Vodka now? More importantly (because it clearly was to [...]
Aside from the other good stuff about this interview with Tim and Eric – where T&E imitators go wrong, their Old Spice commericals, and of course the differences between making sketches and making a movie – the pair also hint at their plans for the future. Eric says, "I think we’d like to make more Tim and Eric movies, like Tim and Eric’s Trillion Dollar Movie—same kind of format, but then try some new shit." It'd be pretty great if it turned into a series and they eventually had to make a Tim and Eric's Septillion Dollar Movie. And spend a septillion dollars doing it.
We'll see whatever movie you want, Weird Al, just don't tell us whose blood that is. More Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie pledge videos below, featuring Paul Rudd, Andy Samberg, Rashida Jones, Fred Armisen, Seth Green, Natasha Leggero, and Michael Ian Black. It's a regular "who's who" of comedians who know how to sign their name!
The full-length trailer for Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is out, and it's as madness-packed as you'd expect. There's fake tans and head dildos and angry Will Ferrell and everything! Also, thank goodness it includes a scene of someone slowly cutting off an old lady's fingers and splattering her face in the blood. I was worried that wouldn't be in there.
This interview with Bob Odenkirk gets into his hopes for the future of his Adult Swim pilot Let's Do This!, the techniques he's learned for dealing with Hollywood bullshit, and the pain of agreeing with a bad review. He also discusses the importance of a creator's strong vision, in the context of Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. Odenkirk does not, however, answer my question about what it's like to have a last name that rhymes with Grodin Irk (it's that thing of when you're pissed off at Charles Grodin). Maybe next time.
Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie showed at Sundance last week, and it looks like it was not universally beloved. About a third of the audience walked out, turned off by the film's "bloodshed, sadistic bathroom humor, and heavy-duty nincompoopery." (Nincompoopery. I would stay in a theater just to hear someone say "nincompoopery" over and over.) "The movie is not for everyone. But there is a part of us that is like, 'Yes!' if it moves people to yell at it or get out. That's great," Wareheim said. The movie's March 2 release date is approaching, so get your walking/yelling/laughing shoes on. (Probably your regular shoes will be [...]
Here's how Eric Wareheim describes his and Tim Heidecker's sense of humor in this article: “Awkward moments are…very much our thing." (I would guess that that ellipsis likely represents about 45 seconds to a minute of silence.) The pair, plus their Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie costar Will Forte, also discuss their penchant for post-production "glitch-outs" and their role in producing Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang! Bang! show on IFC. And how hot turtlenecks are in Palm Springs. Art is suffering, as they say.
Here's the teaser for Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, Tim and Eric's billion-dollar movie in which "two guys get a billion dollars to make a movie, only to watch their dream run off course." The movie hits theaters March 2, and insane asylums will likely begin filling up March 3 with people who just can't handle the full-length Tim & Eric experience.
Roger Ebert did not enjoy Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. To be more specific, he hated it so much that he abandoned his synopsis halfway through and abruptly ends his review with this:
I can't keep this up. Describing the movie is bringing down the level of my prose. As faithful readers will know, I have a few cult followers who enjoy my reviews of bad movies. These have been collected in the books I Hated, Hated, Hated, HATED This Movie; Your Movie Sucks, and A Horrible Experience of Unendurable Length. This movie is so bad, it couldn't even inspire a review worthy of one of those [...]
Tim and Eric want your pledge to watch their movie and definitely not the movie The Lorax. I guess it's too late for the Zit Twins to make an appearance in Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, but this is probably worth supporting anyway.
Rumor has it that Tim and Eric are prepping their first full-length movie, one entitled Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and potentially featuring a pretty stellar cast. Apparently, they've been talking to the likes of John C. Reilly, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, Bob Odenkirk, Harrison Ford and Will Forte. Yes, Harrison Ford is a Tim and Eric fan, as if we needed any more proof that he's a huge pothead.
There's no real word on just what the movie will be about beyond Tim and Eric owing someone a billion dollars and John C. Reilly playing a character named Taquito. The question is really if these [...]
