If you look at Tim and Eric's show, one of the wonderful things about them was how absurd the right and left turns are; one piece to another. But yeah, this has a story. An absurd story.

Tim and Eric are at it again... With somewhat satisfactory results.
Tim and Eric are back, several years after the demise of their regular program on adult swim, and have somehow found their way to the big screen. With all of the offensive gusto, in-your face silliness, and revolting subject matter they can muster, they manage to stretch their form of ridiculous sketch comedy out into a feature length production with mixed results.
By its very nature, Tim and Eric's regular show barely lends itself to a half hour time slot, let alone a full length feature. Thus, the results of their first foray into film is not far removed from other recent, 'short term sketch comedy' experiments on the silver screen, including Macgruber, most of which have been largely unsuccessful. Many of their regular gags are brought in here -- but stretching these gags out merely makes the film seem long and uninspired.
For die hard fans of Tim and Eric, however, there are some laugh out loud scenes, such as the unexpected explosion of a few characters toward the end of the film. John C. Reilley also delivers a sufficiently pathetic performance as a sickly mall maintenance worker, and other supporting actors ham it up with funny results.
Ultimately, Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is a mixed bag at best. For fans of the show, it should partially please with some of the right elements, but will no doubt fail to satisfy, as many of the gags have been seen already on the show. For non fans, it's best advised that you skip this one, as it will likely confuse and revolt you more than anything.
