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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
I wrote a fairly long review of why this movie was so bad and then my computer locked up and I lost it. This movie isn't even worth re-writing the review. I am pretty forgiving of films and will find something good in most all. This movie is the dumbest and worst movie I have ever seen. We were left wondering how or why we ever put it in our rental list. I have never written a review before but this movie moved me enough that I had to let others know.
I really like Kenan Thompson, but this movie wasn't quite there. The jokes were a bit overly juvenile throughout most of the story. What could have saved this was a stronger investment by the comedy actors to take it over the top. Jenny McCarthy (Mrs. Isaac) was the only one who really put out some real comic energy. Everyone else had a few moments, but not consistently. Overall, the story is silly, the cinematography is pretty good, the script and dialogue pretty lame. I stuck it out hoping for at least one really good laugh from Kenan Thompson's performance. It just never came. Maybe next time.
