Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is a new feature film from the twisted minds of cult comedy heroes Tim Heidecker and Eric Warheim ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!"). The premise of the film begins when Tim and Eric are given a billion dollars to make a movie, but comically squander every dime! The sinister Schlaaangcorporation is mega pissed and Tim and Eric's lives are at stake. The comedic duo are forced to skip town to search for a way to pay the money back. Expect the usual jaw dropping hilarity of Tim and Eric's misadventures along with dozens of cameos from Awesome Show regulars!
