Not worth the time
11 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I normally like awkwardness, but this one took it over the top. The plot was so loose. I was waiting for it to progress into something watchable let alone something funny. Midway through the movie I looked it up and realized that the actors were in fact familiar and were in fact Tim and Eric. Which wouldn't normally explain much but laughter. But in this case it meant I couldn't understand the humor because it was more odd that funny. Which is usually the case for Tim and Eric. Sweet berry wine was funny but super weird, because of Tim and Eric. Ie: The Teri's Which was hilarious but also superiorly awkward, unwatchable for most, but if you've ever seen Gummo than you've seen some really uncomfortable stuff and if you liked it than you might love this.
