Everybody Loves the Tim & Eric Movie!

TIM & ERICS BILLION DOLLAR MOVIE Hey, where are all those people going?
  • TIM & ERIC'S BILLION DOLLAR MOVIE "Hey, where are all those people going?"

Haha, jk. About a third of the audience walked out of Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie at Sundance.

As the movie started, Wareheim said he was lingering in the lobby and caught some of the early walkouts.

"A woman and, I think, her two daughters were leaving right away," he said. "She sees me, and under her breath, she goes, 'Ugh ... You call that creativity? I spent money on that shit?'" He shrugged. "The movie is not for everyone. But there is a part of us that is like, 'Yes!' if it moves people to yell at it or get out. That's great."

There's more to that article (including the fact that a lot of people liked it, too), but I mostly just like the idea of infuriated people walking out of a movie and then immediately bumping into one of the movie's stars in the lobby. Normally that would be kind of awkward, but this lady sounds like she was pretty stoked about the opportunity.

Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie doesn't open in theaters until March 2, but it's available on demand now. Also, it hasn't been screened for critics yet so I can't tell you if it's legitimately terrible or if it's just Tim and Eric's usual shtick that people just weren't prepared for. So I guess you should buy it and then see if you end up walking out of your house.
