Those who don't smoke weed might have a slight disadvantage in enjoying things weed smokers would normally find amusing. One of those things is the comedy team of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (aka Tim and Eric), the duo whose surreal sketch show Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! has been a staple on Adult Swim, the Cartoon Network's pothead-friendly block of nightly programming. Like most comic performers whose weird, subversive brand of humor has found them a cult audience on cable, Tim and Eric bring their act to the big screen in a story where they're inexplicably given a billion dollars by a psychotic mogul (Robert Loggia) to make a movie, which they blow on a three-minute short starring a Johnny Depp impersonator in a diamond-covered suit. While Tim and Eric may be two rule-breaking comics who prefer their audiences to be more disturbed than amused, it's likely even their most diehard fans may fail to find the entertainment value here. Then again, they may be high as hell when they watch this, in which case bets are off.
