Wild Hogs (2007) - Rotten Tomatoes

Wild Hogs (2007)



Critic Consensus: Wild Hogs is a dreadful combination of fish-out-of-water jokes, slapstick, and lazy stereotypes.

Movie Info

A group of middle-aged friends decide to rev up their routine suburban lives with a freewheeling motorcycle trip. Taking a long dreamed-of breather from their stressful jobs and family responsibilities, they can't wait to feel the freedom of the open road. When this mismatched foursome, who have grown far more used to the couch than the saddle, set out for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, they encounter a world that holds far more than they ever bargained for. The trip begins to challenge their wits and their luck, especially during a chance run-in with the Del Fuegos, a real-life biker gang who are less than amused with their novice approach. As they go looking for adventure, they soon find that they've embarked on a journey they will never forget.more

Critic Reviews for Wild Hogs

All Critics (141) | Top Critics (41)

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.

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

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.
