Movie Info

A mismatched group of bored suburbanites longing to escape the stress of their daily lives and embrace the freedom of the open road finds that it takes more than polished chrome and leather jackets to truly experience the biker lifestyle in this revved-up road comedy starring John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy. Upon trading the comfort of their couches for the thunderous rumble of two-wheeled street machines, these four adventurous riders cross paths with the

This could have been a City Slickers on cycles. But it's an incredibly lazy movie, from the on-the-nose casting to the soundtrack ('70s vintage road rock) to the script to the scouting of locations.

Petrol-headed fifty-somethings into Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers will probably relate to some of the funnier scenes. The rest, including pre-teens, are advised to avoid it like el plago.

This collection of gags on male menopause, genuinely offensive gay-cop jokes and bumper-sticker life lessons is beyond intolerable.

It's bland and forgettable; it'll probably do okay when it plays on a plane.

Boy, is this one lame wheezer of a movie. Wild Hogs actually feels as though it might take longer to watch than it did to write.

Instead of opening up the throttle, Hogs ends up idling and spreading exhaust.

Becker is handy with a camera and totally knows where the film's bread is buttered, focusing all his energy and attention on his four stars.

I can only assume a bike wreck is much more gruesome than a car accident. Luckily, I have never seen one, but after watching Wild Hogs, I can imagine.

Disneyfied Easy Rider for the suburban set.

Fluff aimed at conservative Middle America, a cynical go-with-the-demographic-trends movie that's shallow and stupid, but featuring big names guaranteeing box office success.

This isn't a movie with any meaningful insights to share about the heartfelt concerns of the over-forty set, but is rather an ill-conceived, "coming-of-age" style misadventure which could just as easily have revolved around some recent high school grads.

Truly awful, monumentally inept, wholly unwatchable.

I'm not sure how well it speaks of a comedy if the funniest scenes come during the closing credits.

At one point, Tim Allen proclaims: 'I'm lame. I'm just lame -- admit it, I'm lame.' Tim, you're preaching to the choir.

If it's a laugh you're after, you have a better shot at getting one by reading a Bazooka Joe wrapper. At least you get a piece of gum with that.

The characters are not consistent and behave crazily in order to advance what little plot there is.

There are a couple of genuinely funny sight gags, but most of the roadside attractions of Wild Hogs are either boring or outright annoying.

If you can imagine City Slickers with bikes instead of horses and without the wit, the likable performances and Jack Palance, then you have a pretty good idea of what this movie is like.

A humiliating medley of ghastly slapstick stunts. Walt Becker is the author of this nonsense. He ought to be sued.

Sounds great, with this cast of men of a certain age on big scary two wheeled monsters. Unfortunately it only pulls it off in places.

There's not a single funny joke in the entire film, unless your idea of humour involves characters repeatedly crashing into things.

Hmmm bit of an A-list ego trip really, not much happens here that isnt predictable, cliched and rather unfunny to be frank. Just a bunch of old guys trying to be cool and funny whilst trying to impress younger women, thats all this is! haha and thats on both counts as in film and reality methinks.

I just think this was a fantasy holiday for the cast to live out and not much more, I can't believe they were paid for this, we'll be seeing Travolta as a pilot in a film soon I reckon, just doing what he loves and getting paid for it. The bikes are cool and so is the idea for a real life holiday but its kinda lame seeing big names getting paid huge amounts for this kind of 'work' whilst trying to desperately regain their youth and fame for real at the same time.

Half-fun, half-lame, although a decent biker comedy overall. Script-wise, it's really lacking, but the cast and soundtrack keeps things enjoyable. I feel sorry for William H. Macy though, whose only job in the film is to provide some clownish slap-stick and comic relief. He sort of reminded me of a real-life Ned Flanders. Anyway, for such a corny plot concept, it's actually pretty amusing. You won't be laughing your guts out, but you won't be bored to tears either. In other words, not as bad as you might believe.
