Midnights at the Baxter presents 'Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie' [Movies]
Print this page

Once upon a time I started my college career at a terrible little university located in a terrible little town in Idaho. Yes, Idaho. (I’ve gotten smarter since then.) Needless to say, there was not a whole lot to do – besides watch TV. Most nights were spent pathetically on the couch watching the various offerings of Adult Swim – “Futurama,” “Family Guy,” “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” etc. And then a new show was advertised, something curiously called “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” I watched the pilot episode. Then I never watched it again.

It seems I missed out, as the show has procured somewhat of a cult following over its five season run. It is a sketch-comedy series featuring Tim and Eric as they do bizarre… things… I’m not really sure, honestly. But apparently it’s hilarious. And now the show’s fans have been awarded with the moment they have eagerly been awaiting after all these years: Tim and Eric’s motion picture, succinctly titled “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie.”

Baxter Avenue Theater presents a midnight screening of “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” tomorrow, Saturday, March 31 as part of the Midnights at the Baxter series. The film follows the adventures of the titular characters as they are given a billion dollars to produce a film… which they promptly squander. All sorts of shenanigans ensue as they desperately attempt to make a billion dollars to pay back their investors.

The film got all sorts of horrible reviews from critics, a fact which is sure to only excite fans of the show even more. Who wouldn’t want to see a movie that Roger Ebert considered so bad that it isn’t even worthy of inclusion in his book collections of bad reviews? (The guy has terrible taste in movies – he liked “Real Steel” and “Bridesmaids”!)

The definitely NSFW trailer can be viewed here.

Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1250 Bardstown Road. Theater information and advance ticket sales can be found at the website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
