Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy star in Wild Hogs, the hysterically funny comedy about four weekend-warrior friends who decide to rev up their ho-hum suburban lives with a cross-country motorcycle adventure. They don their leathers, fire up their hogs and throw caution and their cell phones to the wind as they hit the open highway. But a lot can happen on the road to nowhere, including a run-in with the bad-to-the-bone Del Fuegos, a real biker gang who don't take kindly to wannabes. Filled with hilarious misadventures, screwball situations and madcap mayhem, this laugh-out-loud comedy is a movie your whole family will go hog wild over.

Quick Review:
Every time I mentioned to someone that I had to review "Wild Hogs," if they'd seen it, they would tell me, "It's not as bad as you think it is." Now, I know that's not exactly a glowing endorsement, but I sorta mean for it to be. For the movie it is, and for the audience it wants, "Wild Hogs" is actually a pretty funny, decent way to spend about an hour and a half. Not exactly my first choice, but I don't feel cheated out of the time spent watching it, which is nice.

The set up is simple - Woody (John Travolta), Doug (Tim Allen), Bobby (Martin Lawrence), and Dudley (William H. Macy) are four friends in the midst of conveniently coinciding midlife crises. They are also weekend bikers - "Wild Hogs" - complete with jackets and leather. As their respective lives become more stagnant, they decide to take their road hog ways out to the real road, but as they chase their freedom, they come up against a gang of real bikers - the Del Fuegos - who are intent on teaching these "posers" a lesson. Fighting and friendship ensue.

So, again, it's not like this is high art or anything, but it never claimed to be. What it promised was some good man chuckles, and I think it provides that. Sure, Travolta seemed like he was doing a bad impression of himself for most of his scenes, but counterbalanced with Macy, who was hilarious, it all evens out. It's all pretty predictable stuff, with pratfalls and some fighting and Ray Liotta (is he in every movie now?), but there's a happiness about this film that's a little endearing - because it doesn't take itself too seriously - or at all seriously - it's OK to just go along for the silly ride and laugh.

Special Features aren't bad here-outtakes are always funny, and the "How to Get Your Wife to Let You Buy a Motorcycle" featurette will be funny to guys. The Making Of documentary was pretty standard, but thorough, and touched on just about anything you might need to know about if you're a fan of the movie. I'm glad the Alternate Ending stayed an alternate, because the real one was a lot better, and the Deleted Scenes were OK but didn't add much.

In Conclusion:
Oddly enough, I found myself laughing out loud several times, which was surprising. This is a guy's movie, and lots of them will enjoy it. I'm not a guy, though, and I found it an enjoyable, though obvious and predictable, view. If you're looking for a quick summer night distraction, "Wild Hogs" is, in the words of so many, not as bad as you might think.
