Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie is a comedy film starring that bizarre duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (Tim & Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job and Tom Goes to the Mayor). This film is about Tim and Eric and how they were given one-billion dollars (that's right I said one-billion) to make a masterpiece film. Unfortunately the film is a bomb before it has as chance to hit cinemas as due to irresponsible spending and directing the film ends up being a three-minute short about a... no,no,no,no,no, I'm not going to spoil it. The owner of the company isn't too pleased and demands that Tim and Eric give him back the one-billion they were given to make the film. Later that night Tim and Eric become depressed and go on a drug bender but during a trip to the toilet they see a television ad that could help them get out of debt. The television ad is for a position as boss of a mall and promising that the job will earn them one-billion dollars. They waste no time and start preparing to go see about the job by changing their look and coming up with a catchy business name. Once they make it to the mall they see that the place is a complete dump full of homeless people and spoilt yogurt. They agree to run the place and now it is up to them to save the mall. Will Tim and Eric turn this place from "dump" to "greatest mall on Earth"? Will they find that they have a really "Great Job" or will it all be for nothing?

Samurai Pizza Cats Collection One contains the first half of the classic animated series from the early nineties. The show itself is about a group of cats who run a pizza store called "Samurai Pizza Cats". The group consists of two boy cats Speedy Cerviche, Guido Anchovy and two girl cats Polly Esther and Francine. While they aren't working hard in making a living with their pizza business they are working even harder at stopping crime as these tough kitties are also superheroes that go by the name "Samurai Pizza Cats"... yes just like the name of their shop. Most of the time the crime is caused by a corrupted politician named The Big Cheese and even though they refer to him as a "rat" he is obviously a "fox". The Big Cheese doesn't work alone as he is also teamed up with the leader of the ninja crows, Jerry Atric. The evil duo conduct schemes that don't make much sense at all and they send out the ninja crows to help put the plans to fruition. The Samurai Pizza Cats battle Big Cheese with the help of their magical weapons but sometimes that's not enough as they often get into deep trouble. Lucky for them they have a rescue team that they call simply by ringing the bells around their neck. Some of the crazy scenarios found in this volume include: Battling giant Swedish robots, dealing with butterflies that can change your gender, an out of control punk band, a very cheeky princess, people getting kidnapped to work on a mine to break into a shopping mall, and going through a marathon to get a starring role in a feature film. That's only a small smidgen of the insanity that this show contains. (Click "Read More" to read the full review).
