Four middle-aged men decide to take a road trip from Cincinnati to the Pacific in order to get away from their lives which are leading them nowhere. Taking their motorcycles, these "Wild Hogs" tear up the road and eventually stop in New Mexico for a drink not knowing that the bar belongs to the "Del Fuegos", a mean biker gang. When the Del Fuegos steal a bike that belongs to the Wild Hogs, the four men form a plan to steal their bike back.Written by

Tim Allen plays Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story franchise, and has a sidekick named "Woody", played by Tom Hanks. It's humorous that in this movie, Tim Allen again has a sidekick named "Woody", but played this time by John Travolta, who also played a cowboy in Urban Cowboy (1980). See more »

Four men who are experiencing middle age crises, come together to hit the open road in their motorcycles. Little prepare them for what they will have to face in places where butch biker culture is prevalent. These are straight men who act a lot as though they weren't, in many occasions.
The one question that comes into one's mind is "What are John Travolta, William H. Macy, and Marisa Tomei, or even Ray Liotta, doing in the film?" Well, maybe they needed to redo the decor of their stately mansions, or perhaps they needed to see a Beverly Hills orthodontist, or they were just hard up for some easy cash. Otherwise, it's hard to understand what motivated them to be in this silly comedy that will not add anything to their resumes.
On the other hand, it's easy to see Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence involved in the project because they are basically television products that only aspire to just a certain degree of what could pass for "acting".
The film reminds us of better made films like "City Sleekers", just to name one. Directed by Walt Becker with a screenplay by Brad Copeland, it will probably become a favorite of many in the reruns.
