WILD HOGS by Walt Becker


Four middle-aged men, Doug, Woody, Bobby and Dudley (Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy), frustrated by their mediocre life, decide to go on a road trip with their bikes to prove they are still alive, wild and kicking. They ride under the color of “Wild Hogs” (with a back patch embroidered by Doug’s wife).
Some minor “adventures” (involving insects, birds, fire, skinny-dipping and a gay cop) later, the friends make the mistake to enter a real biker bar and catch some real trouble with biker gang the Del Fuegos, lead by Jack (Ray Liotta).
The showdown between the Wild Hogs and the Del Fuegos is going to take place in the small town Madrid in New Mexico.

If that sounds a bit like City Slickers on bikes – well, it is.
The gags come in a range from complete duds to annoying to mildly amusing, the performances are not exactly brilliant. John Travolta is in Be Cool mode, Tim Allen plays Tim Allen as usual, Martin Lawrence is acceptable, and Ray Liotta is still menacing.
Only William H. Macy brings some dignity to his computer geek with bad riding skills and fear of women, and he gets the girl – gorgeous Marisa Tomei … the lucky bastard.
Why WILD HOGS is commercially so successful remains a mystery, but if you want to watch a rip-off of City Slickers, here it is – and did i mention the magnificent Marisa Tomei is in it?
