Tim and Eric's Strange and Peculiar Sundance Short Film 'The Terrys'
Last month we found out that Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie was shooting with big talent like Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and Will Forte, but before that, the comedic duo debuted a wholly perverse and darkly funny short called The Terrys at the 2011 Sundance Film Fest. If you know their trademark weird comedy stylings from "Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job," then it shouldn't surprise you that The Film Stage says the short has "crackpipes, dry humping, saliva exchange, full vaginal birth, and abuse of every kind" and "if twisted humor is your thing, this is heaven." Watch the very NSFW 15-minute short below!
The is just as crazy as the stuff on their TV show, and even more daring than the material they've thrown up on "Funny or Die Presents" on HBO. Honestly, as twisted as this film is, I'm always interested in seeing the boundaries of comedy pushed. It's intriguing to find the lines comedians and audiences won't cross. When can violence be funny, if at all? Drug use is a serious problem, but in the right hands it can become comedy gold. I guess it comes down to the idea of making fun of problems in our world in order to deal with them. This short doesn't necessarily make those problems easier, but it puts them in a weird portrait. Thoughts?

These guys are so genius. This is one of the gnarliest things I've seen, I didn't expect them to go that far, but God love em for it.

"I'll miss you son, thank you so much little boy" When the female Terry says that at the end I frickin' lost it.

This is the kind of stuff me and my cousin would have dreamed up in the 6th grade and thought it was funny. Gross? Yes. Absurd? Yes. Stupid but not humorous at all? Yes.
