There were no toppings?...
26 March 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

One question; what happened to the laughs? "Wieners", as a comedy, failed to deliver. From the looks of the cover, it looks like a fairly straight up comedy that resembles something of a mix between a Nation Lampoons and typical teenage comedy. And I do believe that the movie appeals to a younger audience, but still, what happened to the laughs?

For a movie with a name like "Wieners", you would assume there would be more sausages and jokes related to guy's private parts in it, but oddly enough there was almost none of either. The movie had potential to put up a lot of such moments, but just didn't do it.

This is basically just a dull version of a road-trip movie that didn't make it all the way to the goal.

The cast in "Wieners" were fairly good. The movie was carried by Kenan Thompson (playing Wyatt), and he was also the one that sported the most laughs, for some reason. He got help from Zachary Levi (playing Ben) and Fran Kranz (playing Joel). On the list are more interesting names such as Darrell Hammond (playing Dr. Dwayne), Mindy Sterling (playing Mrs. Applebaum) and a super great performance by Blake Clark (playing Mr. Applebaum).

I had expected to be laughing more throughout the movie, so I was disappointed when the movie ended, and I was left with a hot dog that sadly enough was missing mustard, ketchup and the works.
