Wyatt (Kenan Thompson) wants so badly to become a hot-dog-selling employee, gets the bright idea to take his two best friends, Ben (Zachary Levi of "Chuck" fame) and Joel (Fran Kranz, "Dollhouse") cross-country in a self-made hot-dog company promoting car to give away free wieners in order to promote the company that won't hire him. There's also the added benefit of kicking the crap out of a Dr. Phil-like talk show host (Darrell Hammond) who caused Joel to get dumped by his girlfriend when they reach their final destination. Along the way they meet multiple eccentric characters sadly, all of which are much more annoying than funny.
This is pretty much a low-rent "Road Trip" clone minus the laughs. It's one of those films where the 'jokes' arn't just devoid of laughs, but their 'punch-lines' can be seen coming from a mile away. To top it off none of the characters are particularly likable enough to care about their so-called 'madcap' adventures. The minutes seemed to stretch for hours, especially during the time that Jenny McCarthy's on the screen (it's just a glorified cameo, yet it felt endless)
Eye Candy: An extra briefly shows her tits at a strip-club & two others randomly walk by later in the film
