In order to gain influence over their North Carolina district, two CEOs seize an opportunity to oust long-term congressman Cam Brady by putting up a rival candidate. Their man: naive Marty Huggins, director of the local Tourism Center.
When Eric is holding the coin that he is about to throw into the fountain, as the shots change, the face of the coin also changes. Going from Heads to tails. See more »
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.

I keep reading "OK, you have to be a Tim and Eric Fan to like the movie" and i can honestly say I thought I was one of those people. I could never quite explain why I like their TV Show and many people told me I was an idiot to watch stuff like that. But who cares... the whole anarchist film making was different, creative... and strangely funny!
Now with this movie its a totally different thing. This has to be one of the dumbest and most useless waste of resources ever. There was not one single scene that gave me a hint of a smile. Sure the usual ingredients were there but just in strange homeopathic doses that just didn't work. Some cheap TV commercial spoofs, crazy editing, sound distortions and gross ideas... you know it from "Awesome show". But this movie didn't just suffer of the fact that not even 10 Minutes of it reached the level of the TV show. I could understand someone falling flat with a feature film considering the length of it but this is like they want to make fun of the viewer by just being as dumb as humanly possible.
There is not one single scene I can get back in my mind which would come close to the weird ads, intermissions, zany animations and Characters from the show. Some of the characters did appear but totally out of context. For example John C. Reilly appears not as Steve Brule but as a character named Taquito who was supposed to be funny because he is sick and coughing or salivating on everything. That sort of pre-school humor seems to be squeezed in for shock value to make people speak of anything after seeing the movie. There is especially 2 scenes of a graphic genital piercing and a diarrhetic bubble bath which are so obviously squeezed in for that purpose that it made me angry.
I am especially angry that these boneheads waste a budget that many aspiring filmmakers would kill for and present a turd on a silver platter. This movie is literally the same thing they joke about with the billion dollar movie they make in the movie. But just like everything about this.... it is not funny. The only movie I can think of that left me with an equal taste of absolute meaninglessness in my mouth is Uwe Bolls "German fried movie".
So congratulations Tim+Eric... you made one of the worst movies in history. Maybe that was the intention, but even that would be the most despicable waste of resources and talent.
Biggest disappointment of the year!
