“Angry moviegoers storm out of Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” (which goes on demand today)

Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, #shrim

“The number of walkouts during a recent Sundance showing of Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, was almost as funny as the vulgar abominations of comedy happening on screen.

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, known for their bizarre comedy sketch show Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, Great Job! on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, expanded their gallery of grotesques and non sequiturs to a feature-length movie, which made its debut here in Park City.

The surreal (to say the least) story follows Tim and Eric after they lose $1 billion on a movie starring a Johnny Depp lookalike, then have to take over an apocalyptic shopping mall full of hobos, wolves, and losers to earn back the money. Bloodshed, sadistic bathroom humor, and heavy-duty nincompoopery follow.

At least one couple storming out of the theater actually hollered back at the screen. Heidecker and Wareheim could barely contain their glee at a post-screening Q&A. “What’d he say?” Heidecker demanded.” [EW]

There’s my Chippy! Someone break out the shrimp and white wine, Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie premieres on demand TODAY (1/27). Check your cable listings. The film by the comedy duo, which hits theaters on March 2nd and made its premiere at Sundance, also features Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Will Forte.

A few lucky (?) people will also get to check it out on a big screen before 3/2 along with the stars of the film Tim Heidecker & Eric Wareheim in the house, appearing as part of a Q&A session. You’ll find Tim & Eric in San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Austin, Los Angeles, and NYC in February and early March, though tickets to all these special screenings (like at Sunshine Cinema in NYC on February 16th) are pretty much sold out.
