Quotes

Serious Announcer: 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.

My heart crumbled
30 January 2012 | by garg-216-196627See all my reviews

Having loved and enjoyed Tim and Eric's stuff for years, I couldn't wait to see this film. I was utterly disappointed however to find myself watching a film so bad and so far from grace that I could barely even stomach the entire thing. I am left with a bad taste in my mouth. This is one of the worst films I've seen in maybe two years. It is not funny, it is just a commercialised, tacky, stale and repetitive nightmare of the dream Tim and Eric used to be. The plot was irrelevant and banal, the jokes failed to ignite even the smallest flame of laughter; instead, I sat with an ever deepening frown on my face, embarrassed every time another gag flopped.

I'm sorry guys, you blew it. I loved her, and you blew it.
