Tobe (Dustin Ingram) is a lonely teen who loves 1980s soft-core “art movies”. His favorite actress is Monica Velour aka Linda Romanoli (Kim Cattrall). Tobe drives a Wienermobile and sells hot dogs. Finally he gets sick of that, so he wants to sell the Wienermobile, but the only interested buyer is from Indiana, but by coincidence Monica Velour lives a few miles from the man, so he agrees to a cross country journey to deliver the truck and meet his hero. His grandfather (Brian Dennehy) thinks the kid is nuts, but when Tobe finds her, she’s working in a low class strip joint and in serious trouble with her ex. Tobe tries to help the trailer-trash single mom win a contentious custody battle.

This is an interesting film. Toby’s a lot like Napoleon Dynamite in the way he acts. He’s so back woods that he doesn’t have any idea what he’s getting into. But the long hazardous journey makes him grow up quite a bit and the movie has a lot of heart. Kim Cattrall plays the aging B movie star really well, and gives us a dose of real life. Brian Dennehy has a small role, but he’s very funny. All in all, the humor is fun, and the movie is real. It’s a coming of age story, and it’s fun to watch Toby grow. This is a little film, but one worth watching out for. It was one of those that was completely missed by everyone that makes a great rental. Well acted and very interesting in the way it’s handled.
