Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
stars Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim are both in The Comedy
, but the movie steps out of the Adult Swim
pool and into a whole other cul-de-sac in the man-child neighborhood. Director Rick Alverson — co-writing with Robert Donne and Colm O'Leary — casts Heidecker as a numb, rich Williamsburg jerk (with Wareheim and LCD Soundsystem retiree James Murphy as two of his pals) who fights his Brooklyn boredom by convincing people to do humiliating things. Pitched somewhere between the failed Belushi-Aykroyd swan song Neighbors
and the deadpan sleaze of Harmony Korine, the already divisive new film plays Screenland Crossroads (1656 Washington, 816-421-9700) at 7 tonight. Get tickets at screenland.com
