Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job are making a movie, a fact to which readers of this site are probably hip. What they (you) may not know is that Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie features some sick stuff that these two let out when the lax Standards and Practices guys at Adult Swim aren’t around to crack the whip.

What kind of sick stuff? Oh nothing really, just disgusting things like JEFF GOLDBLUM and ROBERT LOGGIA! Forehead dildos, and JOHN C. REILLY! Can your stomach take it?

I have to cram this piece with as many jokes and one-offs as possible in the hopes of weaseling out of establishing a narrative based on this trailer, a feat that is downright daunting. If someone would like to take a stab at explaining this film in the comments, that would be pretty cool.

In the meantime, let the weirdness and profanity wash over you in a soothing wave, with the knowledge that, soon, the weekend will be here.

Last week on Monday Night Raw, the wrestling program that just keeps plugging along, whether we pay attention to it or not, featured a very special guest appearance by none other than the Muppets. The fuzzy characters seem to be pounding the pavement early, shilling their newest film to anyone who will listen.

Sure, the WWE is notoriously unscrupulous when it comes to who it will cross-market with, but I would think that the sanctity of the Muppets would keep them from getting roped into a dog-and-pony show such as this. Well, they weren’t.

TV boasts a long history of ill-advised guests appearances and promotional stunts. This Muppet one is just the latest, so take a look at the Muppet appearance and eight more. Then go take a shower.

Muppets on Monday Night Raw

As we’ll see, what seems like an inconsequential decision at the time to include an up-and-coming band in a TV show can often prove profoundly bizarre further down the line. The Flaming Lips have established themselves as a pillar of millennial alternative culture and 90210…not so much.

Before they had hacked out an identity, they were pimping their hit “She Don’t Use Jelly” everywhere they could. And this video proves that point beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Harlem Globetrotters on Scooby Doo

In the 1970’s, the Harlem Globetrotters got their own cartoon with Hanna-Barbera. Fair enough. I guess they were popular enough to carry their own show. However, in an attempt to cross-promote, Hanna-Barbera shoehorned the Globetrotters into a Scooby-Doo crossover, i understand the need to market your show, but this happened on no less than three separate occasions.

Individually, I guess the moves make sense in context. Sort of. But even as an eight year-old in the 80’s, I was caught off guard watching these reruns, wondering why the hell the Harlem Globetrotters were being called in to investigate haunted amusement parks.

Tim And Eric Movie To Feature Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, Abandoned Mall http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tim-and-eric-movie-to-feature-zach-galifianakis-will-ferrell-abandoned-mall/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tim-and-eric-movie-to-feature-zach-galifianakis-will-ferrell-abandoned-mall/#comments Thu, 03 Mar 2011 03:44:02 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=31332 With big stars signed on, Adult Swim's "Tim & Eric Awesome Show" is planning on taking over the big screen... but what will they do to it, exactly?

Semi-abandoned mall, actually.

Something crazy is happening. Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are really shooting a movie, and it will really have a cast that includes Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, Robert Loggia and Zach Galifianakis. They’ve all signed on. Oh, but that Harrison Ford rumor was just that, so n Indiana Jones / Spagett cross-over.

When I heard the news that Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie was happening, I half-assumed it was a joke, like their infamous promotional campaign for Shrek The Third. However, it looks like the stars of Adult Swim‘s “Tim & Eric Awesome Show” are planning on taking over the big screen… but what will they do to it, exactly?

The sketch show was anti-comedy at its most purposefully, elegantly grating, and also was dolled out in 11 minute episodes. As much as I loved the title and posters for Aqua Teen Hunger Force Comma Movie Film For Theaters, I fell asleep half-way through. Of course, I wasn’t stoned, which I was later told was the problem.

Still, the thought of Beaver Boys and James Quall on the big screen is as exciting as finding my Chippy. Below is the plot, or the thing that will semi-resemble plot. (TheWrap)

The movie is about the comedians’ characters, Tim and Eric, who, Wareheim said, “literally get a billion dollars to make a movie, and we make it, and things go awry, and Tim and I just decide to get out of Hollywood and become businessmen in an abandoned mall.

Heidecker interrupted: “Semi-abandoned mall,” he said. “About 10 percent occupancy.”
