The Spoils of Babylon Review: Epic Nonsense Starring Tobey Maguire & Kristen Wiig

The Spoils of Babylon, premiering Thursday on IFC (10 p.m. ET/PT) and produced by Funny or Die, is more correctly titled – with a significant loss of magnificent pretentiousness – Eric Jonrosh’s The Spoils of Babylon.

It also bills itself as an epic television event, but in truth boils down to a mere six half-hour episodes.
