Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie

220px-Billion_Dollar_PosterThis could go either way. It could end up being just another dumbass American slapstick movie crammed full to bursting with dick jokes and endless shouting, or it could be pretty funny.

The premise is that the two main characters Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (playing themselves presumably) are given a billion dollars to make a movie and end up squandering every cent.

To make the money back they decide to rehabilitate a mall full of vagrants, bizarre stores and a man-eating wolf that stalks the food court. Oh yeah, and Zach Gallifianakis, Will Ferrell and Jeff Goldblum are in it. Hit the “read more” link for the trailer.

Eastbound And Down – The Series I tried To Hate

anchormanWill Ferrell might be a comedic genius but there are only a handful of movies he acts in I actually like.

Anchor Man was hilarious and highly original, The Other Guys had me laughing from literally the first scene and even though Stranger Than Fiction had a bit of a shit ending, it was based on a great premise and it was refreshing to watch him in something where he hardly shouted or swore at all.

But you gotta give the man credit where it’s due. His flamboyant, completely unpredictable, loud, crass and bizarre acting style has spawned an entire genre of American slapstick humour which the series Eastbound & Down steals shamelessly from.
