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.

Soulless, boring, formulaic and utterly convinced that its audience won't care.

An innocuous, monotonous comedy that at least has a playful spirit, but its tone doesn't amount to much when pitted against forced shtick and an even more forced attempt at a plot.

The Wild Hogs gripe, bicker, and bond, and a couple of them even find true love in female forms.

Takes the goofy route through the material, with corny slapstick and hackneyed jokes, none of which are remotely funny.

The entire cast aquits itself and none do anything so embarrassing that they can continue to have something to fall back on when they make bad investments.

The "gay panic" humor is so rampant that it's reasonable to wonder if cast and crew members wrapped each shooting day by beating up a homosexual off-screen.

It's City Slickers with horses and cattle replaced by motorcycles and a lot of gay jokes. The celebration of conformity is where its aura of laidback inclusiveness is revealed as a pose.

The previews for this silly little film looked horrid, but it broke Disney box office records for March. So I saw it with my folks and heck, if we all didn't have a good time!

Among these pigs in a blanket of cliches, John Travolta is particularly cringe-worthy ...

The actors possess enough charisma and good spirit to charm even if there's the sneaking suspicion that their skills are in service of something mediocre.

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

A comedy that's beneath its one-time A-List talent.

Rediscovering one's inner manhood and earning everyone's respect boils down to fighting the bad boys. Another measure of manliness involves repeatedly making fun of a gay highway patrolman (John C. McGinley) and tossing in plenty of homophobic jokes.

In many ways, Wild Hogs is the worst type of movie - a cynical affair that means to rob its audience by promising a romping good time it has no intention of delivering. I really think a lot of the people involved ... should be ashamed.

Films like these are built for speed, not comfort. The big name cast is there to drag in an audience for the opening weekend, so the picture makes its money before word gets out.

Well, this is an awful movie.So why did I give it two stars?Because, despite the fact that this script is driven entirely by a lowest-common-denominator approach to getting middle-aged men in the theaters, the movie has two single minutes that are simply
