Sundance 2012 Video Blog: 'Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie' Is Nuts

"My Dad told me this was the coolest mall ever. You think you know more than my Dad? Don't f**kin' come then!" For the first Midnight at Park City screening here at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Adult Swim stars Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim returned to the festival (after debuting their strange short The Terrys last year) with Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. Our titular characters try to earn a billion dollars to pay back the money they wasted on a big movie, and myself and Germain Lussier from SlashFilm recorded a video blog reviewing the film and letting people know whether it's just for the fans.
Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim wrote and directed Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie which finds the duo given a billion dollars to make a movie. However, things go completely awry, and Tim and Eric end up leaving Hollywood and show business altogether to become businessmen in a semi-abandoned mall. Zach Galifianakis, John C. Reilly, Will Ferrell, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, William Atheron (Walter Peck from Ghostbusters) and veteran actor Robert Loggia all make appearances in the film which Magnet will send to VOD on January 27th, before it makes its way to theaters later in the year on March 2nd, 2012.

I believe that's the fist time in history anyone's ever referred to Awesome Show, Great Job! as "lame". That said, I can't freaking wait for this film.

About what I was expecting to hear. The ATHF Movie was good for the first hour, but then fell off somewhat towards the end, indeed. Good video review. // Mr. Anderton have you lost weight? Good on you, man.
