  1. With its clever premise and quartet of appealing comedic star turns, Wild Hogs is a step above the typical comedies rolling off the assembly lines of the major studios.

    The movie is this year's "RV," a rolling tent show of suburban male anxieties: castration, obsolescence, dismissive offspring, fears of gayness. LOTS of fears of gayness. Unlike "RV," though, Wild Hogs is funny. Eventually.

    While each actor is talented in his own right, the on-screen friends' relationship is barely developed.

    Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Allen, who have never aspired very far beyond their affable television-comedy personas, are easier to watch than Mr. Travolta or Mr. Macy, who both undertake what can only be called acting. This is more than the picture deserves, but then again, so is Ray Liotta, as the chieftain of the bad bikers, and so is Ms. Tomei.
  5. 38
    Wild Hogs is more tired, worn out, and sagging than its protagonists - an arthritic comedy whose humor is below mediocre and whose drama is cringe-worthy.
  6. Macy's character finds romance with the Madrid, N. M., diner owner played by Marisa Tomei. They're the only two people on screen who relate in any way. But there's no movie here. There is only a tired "City Slickers"-inspired idea for a movie.
  7. 0
    An indolent, PG-13, Disney "biker" flick that does for comedies what Exxon did for Prince William Sound.

    Wild Hogs in not only a funny movie, but it allows a great amount of joy for anyone who watches it. John Travolta, Tim Allen, William H. Macy,Wild Hogs in not only a funny movie, but it allows a great amount of joy for anyone who watches it. John Travolta, Tim Allen, William H. Macy, and Martin Lawrence take us on a fun ride along through their journey across the states and it is not the usual trip. This movie is full of laughs and you will never get bored watching it. If you are looking for a great laugh, I would highly recommend Wild Hogs. The acting is great, the humor is there and the story is just interesting enough that it is not weird. Expand

    The whole theatre was laughing out loud most of the time. Everyone went away happy. That deserves a 10.

    It appears some of our better actors in the business needed some free harley's to ride the topanga canyon area on Sunday's and It appears some of our better actors in the business needed some free harley's to ride the topanga canyon area on Sunday's and dialed in their performances using old material from dozens of better films. Even Marisa Tomei could not save this one, and John Travolta again showed he is not afraid to stink up the screen for cash. My biggest surprise was William Macy agreeing to do such a film. Expand

    i've crapped better films than this. i know there is a think called "entertainment," and these guys miss it entirely. homophobic jokes i've crapped better films than this. i know there is a think called "entertainment," and these guys miss it entirely. homophobic jokes (especially with bikers) just don't qualify is humour. for those of you who enjoyed this film in any way, run quick to your local video store and rent "I Have No Idea What A Good Comedy Is, And I Should Bury Myself In Quicksand." But hurry, there are only so many copies. Expand
