Movie Info

Keenan Thompson, Fran Kranz, and Zachary Levi star in this comedy about three teens to embark on a cross-country road trip to seek vengeance against the hypocritical television "doctor" who humiliated them in front of the entire country. Joel (Kranz) has wandered into the crosshairs of national television sensation Dr. Dwayne (Darrell Hammond), and when the hot-winded talk-show host humiliates him on live TV, he sinks into a serious depression. Hoping to lift their best pal out of his current funk, Joel's best friends Wyatt (Thompson) and Ben (Levi) gas up Wyatt's homemade wiener-mobile and set their sights on Dr. Wayne's studio. Along the way, the trio hands out complimentary hot dogs to everyone they meet, all the while encountering an impressive array of misfits, weirdoes, and rejects. Perhaps if they can dodge the spit of some unusually angry hippies and stop staring at the hottest sixth grade teacher they've ever encountered (Jenny McCarthy), these three friends can finally give Dr. Dwane a taste of his own bitter medicine.

Audience Reviews for Wieners

I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting into when I added this to my list. I must say that I was rather surprised. You have the common coming of age, best friends, travel across country to stand up against/get something and they learn more about themselves than they ever thought they would. Sure this is a plot for many other movies and while this movie doesn't break the mold it still provides plenty of funny moments. This is the first movie I have seen with the star from Chuck (Zach Levi) and I must say he's just as amusing on film as he is in small doses on TV. Another TV star along for the ride is Kenan and while arguably some of his work was done on "All That" this movie really let him shine. It's a funny watch and if you want something not very serious but very amusing this movie provides a safe and enjoyable choice.
