Details Limited Release: Mar 02, 2012; Rated: R; Length: 94 Minutes; Distributor: Magnolia Pictures

In their savagely satirical first feature, the cult duo from Cartoon Network's Adult Swim play failing Hollywood filmmakers who get hired to be the savior-managers of a dying shopping mall. The movie mercilessly lampoons an idiot America drowning in corporate flimflam — revealed in everything from the inanities of big-screen storytelling (which Tim and Eric tweak by mocking their own film) to a gluten-nightmare chain restaurant called Inbreadables. The vicious mirth is hit-or-miss but contagious. (Also available on VOD) B+
