Has a few good scenes, but overall a disappointment.
A very predictable story about four yuppie biker wanna-be's on a road trip across America. Has a few good scenes, but overall I thought it was a disappointment. Lots of good acting talent, just not used to their full potential.
Watch it once just for the heck of it, but you'll not need to keep a copy to watch over again.
Good Blu-Ray quality, picture and sound.

The Bottom Line
Four middle-aged men, three stuck in dysfunctional relationships and one unable to even talk to a woman, get their motors running and head out on their Harleys in Wild Hogs, a comedy from Van Wilder director Walt Becker. Wild Hogs takes the 'let's throw in every goofy set-up we can and see if something works' approach to filmmaking and actually manages a few decent comedic moments - almost in spite of itself.
Travolta, Allen, Macy and Lawrence sell the friendship and fit together well
Enough slapstick comedy to keep it chugging along
It gets a few Brownie points for trying to include a little heart along with the laughs
Surprisingly homophobic for a studio film in this day and age
The nerdy computer guy can't use his own laptop - yeah, right!<br>
Stars John Travolta, William H Macy, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, Ray Liotta, and Marisa Tomei
The actors had varying degrees of experience riding motorcycles before the film, with Travolta easily the best of the group
Rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, and some violence
Theatrical Release Date: March 2, 2007
Guide Review - "Wild Hogs" Movie Review
John Travolta, William H Macy, Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence play buddies who feel the need to escape from their 9-to-5 lives and decide the best way to recapture some of their lost youth is to take off on their Harleys. The foursome includes Doug (Allen), a dentist with identity issues; Bobby (Martin), a frustrated writer forced by his domineering wife to return to the world of plumbing; Dudley (Macy), a 40-year-old virgin who can't speak to a woman if his life depends on it; and Woody, the 'leader' of the pack who instigates the roadtrip. Woody's so-called charmed life with a swimsuit model wife and successful business is all a big front, and he needs to get away with his best buds to put some distance between himself and his troubles.
Off they go and, of course, absolutely nothing turns out as they planned. Their tents burn down and they encounter a motorcycle cop who believes the men are lovers and wants to join in on the fun. Things get really hairy when they run afoul of a group of real bikers who don't like couch potato posers who think black leather jackets and a cool logo patch are all it takes to be bikers.
To Sum It Up
Although they sound like an unlikely group of actors to play friends, Allen, Travolta, Macy and Lawrence are absolutely convincing. The acting's not the problem with Wild Hogs. The film's downfall is the time spent building the backstories and showing the families of the foursome. Wild Hogs might have been much more enjoyable if it left out their families completely and just concentrated on the buddy humor, freeing up time for more slapstick comedy - the part of the film that works the best.
Wild Hogs is forgettable, but fun in parts. From bull-slapping to naked waterhole antics, Wild Hogs tries its hardest to rise above road trip movie clichés and just barely makes it.Read full review

Good Laughs !!!! Mid-Life Fun !!!!
'Wild Hogs' is an All-Star Comedy that melds the talents of John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence, and William H. Macy in the cinematic equivalent of a supergroup.
Most of the humor can be described as "this is so dumb I can't believe I'm laughing," but there is nothing wrong with brain-dead comedy, so long as the jokes work. Of course, the problem with most movies of that ilk is that they quickly run out of gas and the jokes fall flat. That fate eventually befalls 'Wild Hogs' as well, although it scores extra points for a fun end-credit sequence — but mostly this congenial tale of middle-aged wannabe crazies proves surprisingly entertaining.
In this sissy-biker 'City Slickers', the stars are suburbanites in the throws of a collective midlife crisis. Their informal motorcycle club, the "Wild Hogs," is their only escape from their mundane existences. Dentist Doug (Allen), a one-time wild man, now spends his time watching his cholesterol and stewing over his inability to connect with his young son. Plumber Bobby (Lawrence) has to live with the ignominy that it is his wife, Karen (Tichina Arnold), who truly wears the pants in the family. Geeky, clumsy, and terminally shy computer programmer Dudley (Macy) has no real life. Formerly the most successful of all of them, Woody (Travolta) recently lost his business, his money, and his swimsuit-model wife.
So what are four guys whose self-esteem is in the toilet to do but heed Horace Greeley's advice to "Go West, Young Man!"?
Concept? : Travel West from Ohio to the Pacific Ocean, camping out on the open road and going wherever the highway takes them. Cell phones, wives, and kids are not allowed. Neither is common sense, apparently, as they think nothing of stopping in at a real biker bar, believing in some kind of fantasy of a motorcycle brotherhood.
The Del Fuegos, headed by hotheaded Jack (Ray Liotta channeling his psycho character from 'Something Wild' & 'Unlawful Entry' & 'Goodfella's'). The bar's regulars, disagree, and they're willing to chase the Hogs across the country—or at least to the nearby town of Madrid — to assert their differences.
The first half of 'Wild Hogs' is just plain silly, with the type of humor that arises out of male panic, whether it be fear of women or of homophobia (no one is ever quite sure of Dudley's sexuality, and when the quartet meets John C. McGinley's exuberantly gay Highway Patrolman, their reaction is hysterical in every sense of the word).
And while Travolta, Allen, and Lawrence are pleasant enough on screen, it is Macy who steals every scene he is in, whether he is falling off his motorcycle for the Zillionth Time or mouthing one of the inept Dudley's goofball lines. The man is a national treasure.
Once the Del Fuegos enter the scene, the humor is less reliable, possibly because Liotta is so intense it throws off the rhythm of the movie. And so, as stupid comedies often do, it begins to wear out its welcome.
But stick around !!!!
Kyle Gass' Cameo as perhaps the world's most insane karaoke singer (his cover of The 'Pussycat Dolls' - "Don't Cha" — with its refrain of "Don't Cha Wish Your Girlfriend was Hot Like Me? Don't Cha Wish your Girlfriend was a Freak Like Me?" — is worth the price of a movie ticket by itself).
The laughs may be more sporadic, but they still come. And sometimes that is about all anyone can wish for. Just make sure to check that brain at home — you won't be needing it.
Good Laughs !!!!Read full review

Wild ride of a fun and hilarious movie !!!
Again, this is one of those movies that we have no intention of getting its blu-ray format but was lucky to get it for a reasonably price. From the get go I think we all know that this is a comedy with great casts.
The movie comes out after Hairspray ( at least we watched it after Hairspray ) and thus we still have the John Travolta as-a-comedian image preparing to watch the movie. Plus the trailer looks kinda funny and truth be told, we did enjoy the movie if not slightly predictable. However, the jokes are somewhat original and hilarious especially with the stuffs hitting their faces while riding on the bikes. But the most outstanding performance in our opinion lies with William H. Macy as he simply stole the show with his comedian acts. I didn't realise the guy has it in him to be a comedian but it works. Tim Allen is in his usual typical tough but softie and funny-in-a-way act and John Travolta is in his " Be Cool " ( from the movie ) kinda act which is so different from his Hairspray acts ( we were hoping him to follow that act but unfortunately that wasn't the case here ).
Martin Lawrence and Marisa Tomei are both pretty good with their usual trademark acts. However, Ray Liotta also shines in this movie as a tough baddie and shares the limelight with William H. Macy. It is almost as if both are opposite with one another but seemingly appears similar in their characters. I love the comedic ending with a new and flamboyantly renovated bar.... well you just have to watch it to appreciate it I guessRead full review
