Tim Heidecker, of the strange and funny TV series Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, plays Swanson, an odd man who is set to inherit his dying father’s estate. However, a life of privilege doesn’t seem to suit him, aside from spending a lot of time on his rather nice boat. He takes a scummy job washing dishes, and finds himself hanging around lazy people and strange women. Heidecker takes an organic approach to the role, giving us a real guy, as opposed to the goofballs he’s been portraying (quite terrifically) on TV. It’s an interesting transformation, and he makes Swanson an intriguing sort. His usual partner in crime, Eric Wareheim, plays one of Swanson’s sloppy buddies, and he also delivers the goods. The film is light on dialogue, requiring Heidecker to employ his physical skills. He also does a mean Nick Nolte impersonation
