VIFF 2012 review: The Comedy
Expect walk-outs when audiences realize just how irritatingly unfunny the lead character is in this heavily improvised mess. Hard to believe that Tim Heidecker has his own TV series ( The Tim and Eric Show) based on his sour turn as a Brooklynite getting fat and bitter sitting on his trust fund while people around him at least try to engage with life. None of the human interactions ring true; even if they did, who really needs to see dumb, dull behaviour like this?
