Just one-half star for all that shrim? And is "Tim and Eric" the most divisive movie of the year so far?

From Roger Ebert's half-star review of "Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie"

"Describing the movie is bringing down the level of my prose. As faithful readers will know, I have a few cult followers who enjoy my reviews of bad movies. These have been collected in the books I Hated, Hated, Hated, HATED This Movie; Your Movie Sucks, and A Horrible Experience of Unendurable Length. This movie is so bad, it couldn't even inspire a review worthy of one of those books. I have my standards."

I can't tell.  Do you think he liked it?

By the way, Criticwire's average grade for "Tim and Eric" is currently a C+ out of 14 ratings that range from an F (from The Oregonian's Shawn Levy) to an A- (from Collider's Matthew Wilder).  There may not be a more divisive movie this year.  Viva la shrim!
