Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing around here... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Wieners.
Wieners stars  Kenan Thompson as Wyatt. His dream is to own his own a hugely popular hot dog business. He gets a van and spends his entire savings on making it look like a hot dog and efficient enough to go out on a drive across the country to give out free hot dogs. He figures that way he can get people interested in his wieners. To be able to do this he enlists the help of his two best friends: Ben (Zachary Levi) and Joel (Fran Kranz).
 
However, the hardest challenge might not be getting his wiener business off the ground but getting his friend Joel to go along with him. He's suffering from relationship break-up depression. Wyatt and Ben team up to try and get him to go. They even go as far as to trick him because he's in that phase of never wanting to leave the house or get out of his sweats. Once all three of the guys are in the wiener van, they head out on an adventure.
 
Wyatt has mapped out towns that he thinks would be great to give out his hot dogs. Along the way the three guys have adventures that they didn't bargain and childhood memories come flooding back. They also stop along the way to see one of their old school teachers (played by Jenny McCarthy).
 
So will Wyatt hit it big in the hot dog market? Will him and his two friends still be best friends at the end of the trip? Watch and find out! I'm not going to lie... I had this movie sitting on my shelf for months waiting to be watched. Honestly, I thought it sounded dumb and not like something I'd want to watch. Once I watched it, I thought it was funny. It definitely made me laugh.
