although it is often hard to see through the wrongness that is tim and eric , they are in fact both truly great actors. tim's performance in this film is nothing short of juliard. check out the duo's billion dollar movie. approved as \"the greatest movie ever made\" by none other than steven speilberg

San Francisco Chronicle
The Comedy, one of the most self-indulgent, pretentious and unfunny movies of the year, is a mean-spirited piece of mumblecore that tries to provoke you, but only succeeds in boring you. Full Review

If you can discern any critical distance or interesting perspective here, or even a good reason to spend 90 minutes in such company, I'm afraid the joke is on you. Full Review

The Playlist
It's a meaty film, filled with ideas unobscured by any generic narrative string, a move that shows not only the confidence of the director but his respect of the audience. This is one that'll have people talking. Full Review

New York Daily News
The movie may critique its antihero, but it also offers just one more venue in which he's allowed to wallow - while we pay his way. Full Review

Slant Magazine
Tim Heidecker's Swanson does not amuse us in spite of the pity he inspires but because of it. Full Review
