Wild Hogs...the movie.

Well..I must say that there are only a few things more enjoyable then watching a big screen presentation of a biker comedy in a theater full of fellow riders. (Watching Grif guess oil weights by taste ranks in the top 5.) It was a sneak preview with little advertisement, but the theater was sold out last Saturday. Four buddies in the midst of midlife crisis, four bikes, open road and comical situations!

And to watch John Travolta man handle that K1200LT in the opening segment...

If you have ridden for any length of time, you will be able to appreciate some of their situations. If you enjoy a great laugh, put it on your list, if you are expecting a great work of non-fiction, stay home. Yes, they ride in jeans, no they dont always wear helmets so if you are going to come back and comment about their lack of social responsibility, probably best not to go. If you want to laugh til you cry, put it on your list for this Saturday.

John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, Ray Liota, William Macey did a great job of entertaining those sitting in the theater. Some of the scenery shots looked like places I have ridden over the years. Made me want to take off on a road trip!

Keep the rubber side down!

Thanks for the review, Gene. I thought it looked kind of stupid, but, now I'll rent it.

From the previews it looks like a good movie. I might even go to see it one day if I have nothing to do. Most likely I will rent it.

I'll see it sometime. Maybe theatre, but most likely on rental. I look at movies for what they are - entertainment. I know some folks tend to get upset at how they see various things portrayed - I remember the uproar over Days of Thunder amongst NASCAR fans when it came out. Heck I liked it for what it was - a MOVIE. ANd was amazed at how they cut all the scenes together of real wrecks and movie footage. I thought it was neat for what it was. hopefully folks won;t get so upset over gear or lack thereof or portrayal of "bikers" or whatever.

Same thing about this one. Looks like a hoot to me.

I really enjoyed "Wild Hogs" - especially the bug part! I learned the value of windshields on my first Honda 350... Had one on every bike since.

Good humor - there's something there to make anyone laugh - but the message is that's it's not the destination, it's the ride... that will ring true to all of us.

And I had no problem with the garb - it's how most ride.

It's few and far between when we go to the movies but we do rent quite often. I have had that movie on my "must see on the big screen" list for a while.

I hates going to the theatre. Scushed up with too many folks, if you have to pee, you can't pause it, death to the yacking teen.

Now, this I found funny: last time we went to a movie some kid (it had to be a kid) wrote all over the windows of my pickup with that window paint. Stuff like, Ford's are for fags, Dodge rules, etc. He was considerate enough not to get any on my paint. I rode around with it like that for a week.

The "Wild Hogs" were on HD's but the Del Fuego's had a mix of HD and OCC. Nice product placement on the part of the Teutels (sp?).

Another trip back and then thay talk about what she missed. "Thirsty?", I'll be right back. Sits down and "opps, I forgot the straw". Back again, now she has to pee...

Laughing now....

This is a movie unto itself. We will ride through howling winds, driving rain, hail, snow, sandstorms, 500 miles for good bbq, 1500 miles to help a friend in need. We will spend hours removing a stuck bolt, finding out just what that dohickey zip tied to the right crash bar assembly might be, completely tear a bike down...a second time...cuz I am just not sure if I torgued that bolt just right, cannot fathom why a spouse would utter the words...bud, you need a farklectomy, would buy a 30 dollar tool to spend three hours modifying it cuz the shop wants $60 for the OEM part, spend hours discussing the benefits of 20 wt muffler bearing lube, think a ride in the flat spots of texas avoiding sunning rattlesnakes and armadillos in 120 degree heat is fun, but wont go sit in a theater for 90 minutes cuz the lady in the next seat may have to pee!!!

I'm with you.

I think aside from "Gladiator" and "Master and Commander", I can't think of a recent movie that really needs a theater-sized screen and full THX sound system to fully enjoy it.

Quality entertainment of the likes of Borat or Jackass could probably be enjoyed in the privacy of a 2.5" video screen of the latest iPod. LOL!!!

This is the best one so far. Some people are too grumpy to go out in public. Somebody might want to talk to them or inconvenience them in some way.

I'm taking my daughter and wife to the theater tonight to see this movie. I can't wait. I have a feeling that it will hit pretty close to home with me and some of my riding buddies.

It is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content, and some violence.

this movie sounds like a stinker

WILD HOGS
Adventure, Comedy
(times & theaters)

Rated PG-13
Directed by: Walt Becker
Starring: John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen, William H. Macy, Marisa Tomei, Ray Liotta, Jill Hennessy

It’s bad enough that Wild Hogs is essentially a regurgitation of City Slickers — only with motorcycles instead of horses — but it’s also hard to recall a recent movie so desperate to convince you of its heterosexual bona fides. This movie hates gay people more than the Rev. Fred Phelps, Rick Santorum and Tim Hardaway put together. The four suburban Cincinnati pals and motorcycle club comrades emerge mostly as carbon copies of City Slickers counterparts. Dentist Doug (Tim Allen) is the Billy Crystal part — the vaguely depressed nice guy with the improbably supportive wife (Jill Hennessy). Financier Woody (John Travolta) is the Bruno Kirby part — the angry, macho thrill-seeker. Plumber Bobby (Martin Lawrence) plays the henpecked equivalent of Daniel Stern. Along with Dudley (William H. Macy) — who, in a stroke of cliché-embracing, is a maladroit computer programmer who’s never had a girlfriend — the quartet hits the road to California, attempting to grab back some semblance of their vital younger selves from the jaws of middle-age. Or perhaps meet the ghost of Jack Palance. This is the kind of comedy that’s not just unfunny, but actively repugnant in its reactionary sensibilities. In the past screenwriter Brad Copeland (TV’s Arrested Development) has shown his sense of humor to be subtler and smarter. Maybe here he was just an innocent bystander — or maybe his idea of “smart” this time around was counting on the American public’s voracious appetite for anything that treats homosexuality as a punch line. -- Scott Renshaw

Movie Review: 'Wild Hogs', a welcomed mid-life crisis
by Richard Romero
published on Thursday, February 22, 2007

Wild Hogs is the latest work of art from Touchstone Pictures starring silver screen favorites John Travolta, Tim Allen, William H. Macy and Martin Lawrence.

The "fantastic four" take on the roles of Doug, Bobby, Woody, and Dudley. Doug (Allen) is a dentist who is constantly ignored by his son who finds him boring; Bobby is a dreamer who is bossed around by his demanding wife, Woody is a bankrupt divorcee in denial; and Dudley is a computer programmer who just wants to meet a girl. While each man deals with their individual issues, they share a common passion for motorcycles and riding around their town as the "Wild Hogs". Early in the film, the four friends realize they have transformed into the "old, boring" people that they had always feared of becoming. After the pain has had a moment to sink in, Woody proposes a road trip to the coast to revitalize their lives. All four friends welcome the adventure and in no time are on motorcycles touring the open road.


Of course this movie cycles through the typical tribulations of the "road trip comedy" from encounters with strange cops to wandering aimlessly in the desert in desperate need of gasoline. But the film takes a different turn when the Wild Hogs meet and anger a real motorcycle gang called the Del Fuegos. The Del Fuegos are lead by the ruthless Jack (Ray Liotta) who would like nothing more than to put an end to the Wild Hogs' road trip (and possibly their lives).


The movie Wild Hogs is a comedic breath of fresh air and should hold up well at the box offices considering its main competition around the release date will be Ghost Rider, and The Number 23. With neighboring films like these, Wild Hogs should stand in a league of its own and be given many moments to shine.


While the story of a road trip is not entirely original, the movie itself is awesome considering the comedic dream cast that dominates every scene of the film. While Allen, Travolta and Lawrence play the believable roles of the "witty family man", William H. Macy steals the show with his character Dudley, who is a huge nerd that seems to know every odd fact in the world and wonders why no woman will give him more than five minutes of her time. He perfectly plays his role with every awkward line that leaves his mouth.


As if the four leads were not enough to have movie-lovers flocking to the nearest theater, the supporting cast is also something to consider. Not only are the antics of the Del Fuegos hilarious on a cartoon-like level, but so are the numerous cameos from John C. McGinley (Dr. Cox on Scrubs) who plays one "very jealous" highway patrolman.


Wild Hogs is cinematic comedy at its finest and can be enjoyed by anyone with an open mind; however, the previews can somewhat be deceiving. Due to the cast and theme, Wild Hogs can easily be mistaken for the next film in the Disney franchise.

IT IS NOT!


Wild Hogs is rated PG-13 and is very "wild" due to its crude and sexual humor. This film is recommended for families with mature adolescents who will be able to appreciate the jokes that can, at times, be far from squeaky clean.

Overall, Wild Hogs is one of the most enjoyable comedies of the month and will most definitely be a top seller once it hits DVD in stores. It may even inspire some potential bikers to stop spending their cash on ticket stubs and start stashing away for a Harley.



Wild Hogs is set to release in theaters on March 2, 2007.

It isn't about spending the time so much as in what social dynamic. Bike work is done individually or with close friends having similar interest.(Like the movie.) Unwillingness to interact with a diverse public in a large yet contained social arena is quite consistent with the age demographic of the average BMW rider. Doesn't mean we're anti-social just grown a bit refined and particular in our company. Most of us live the "dream" the movie plot presents every summer and I am sure there are enough stories between us to write our own hilarious screenplay. Of course, the obvious solution is to plan a 90 minute circuitous ride to and from your theater with 10-12 of your riding buddies so you take up a whole row. You'll sit beside someone you know, intimidate those that break the rules, and you can see it now and watch it again with your same buddies on DVD this summer. Dare I suggest it be screened at CCR?

I do NOT like going to the movies. I would rather buy/rent the DVD and watch it at home. I am not a big John Travolta fan either. But I went to see Wild Hogs with some fellow riders (and our wives) and it was a hoot! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.

The ending is great! Some of the "younger" members of our group couldn't figure it out.

I went to see it last night. Wasn't half bad, but nothing stelar. The biggest laughs from the crowd were whenever William Macy crashed. ??

The place was sold out though...

As far as reviews go, I stopped letting others think for me quite some time ago.

Saw the "Wild Hogs" last night with 11 of my riding (HD) brothers. This was the best entertainment movie I've seen in years. All shows for the past two days were sold out. 95% of the crowd was over 40.

IT IS ABOUT THE RIDE!

Wild Hogs...the movie

Saw the flick last night at the movie grill in dallas...went with wife and friends...sat next to a whole group of bikers...i ride a BMW and a Harley myself...didn't know if i would enjoy the movie based on the previews...always hate to see stupid things done by guys on bikes, such as riding abreast of each other (in some cases 4), not paying attention to what their doing,not wearing a helmet, etc...i wanted to see Ghost Rider but the wife wanted to see this because of the cast, etc...i succombed...i THOROUGHLY ENJOYED the movie...Tim Allen reprised some of his "cave man" humor, Macy is just too funny anyway, and i could go on...i wanted to go home, pack the bike, and take off for colorado today...i have been on rides with 3 other guys (two years ago to sturgis) where we rode from dallas and went up through colo.'s mountains...after that experience, i found i prefer to ride alone...i REALLY couldn't see myself riding with a LARGE group of bikers!...anyway, i would recommend this movie to anyone who just wants to have a good belly laugh and enjoy the slapstick...RIDE HARD OR STAY HOME!!

Yep, took me a few adult years to start thinking for myself....don't think I'll change now.

I watch movies for their entertainment value....make me laugh, hold me in suspense, scare me, ......that sort of thing. Not looking for a message, a theme, or even an academy award performance.

Saw the movie yesterday with my wife. Funny movie, made us laugh.

regards

Yep.. I loved it. It was a real hoot, for sure.
For those of you who haven't seen it yet, DON'T bail before the credits are over at the end.

Thumbs up Not so wild hogs

Funny. Go see it and enjoy the comedy. Take kids unless you are REALLY up tight. They see/hear/read it all in school when you're not around. At least you will be there to talk to them about it after the show. I enjoyed it.

The Peter Fonda cameo was excellent. Ride hard or stay home and....lose the watches. The end credits were nearly as good as the whole movie. I am sure it will be in DVD within 3-4 months. Nice thing about this movie is it has no interest with young people. No one in the theater under 25 in my estimation and most over 40. Quite a nice public movie experience for a change!

Talking Funny Flick!

Marilyn and I went the other day and absolutely enjoyed ourselves! And like others have said, "BE SURE YOU DON'T MISS THE FIRST PART OF THE CREDITS!!!" That was at least as entertaining as the movie itself.

Movie was entertaining which is more than I can say for most of them. I very seldom go a movie unless I know in advance it is pure entertainment. Have has enough real life downer moments in my live to go looking for more.

My wife and I liked the singer at the chili festival - no idea why we just found him so funny, but we both did. Glad we went because we both enjoyed it. As someone said earlier, stay for the entire move - many did not stay and missed some really good parts.

My 19 year old daughter, a film art major, went with us. She thought she knew who Peter Fonda was and wondered how he manages to look so cool even at his age. That started a 90 minute discussion over dinner about Easy Rider, the development of cross country riding, and all the big name "old" stars in Easy Rider that also have the ability to look cool in their advancing years. Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson for instance. It made a pretty solid connection. She is scheduled for basic MSF training in May.

Gets my vote for funniest movie of the year, maybe even decade! For most of us over 50 crowd who grew up with Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper, remember Woodstock, or ever did something stupid on a bike; if you've ever ridden a bike; the first camping trip; what I used to be able to do; simply loved it!!

Went to Colorado for a few days for my wifes medical check up and while we were there we went and saw "Wild Hogs". When Tim Allen's character was named Doug she looked at me and asked if this is what our road trips are like. Then when they said his last name she just about fell off her chair. You never hear things 100% in a theater but I swore they said Doug Matson as Tim Allens name. I thinks his wifes name was Kelly and thats my daughter's name and his son was Tim same as my son. One of the other guys wife was Karen, thats my wifes name so it was more than a funny movie for my wife and I to see. Oh and when I got home I looked it up and Doug's last name was Madsen not Matson but I guess I just wanted to hear my name up on the big screen! Sure made me appreciate the LT for the road trips.

Loved it!

The reincarnation of Easyriders it is not! Knowing that Tim Allen is in the flick is sufficient notice to realize that the movie would be gags and farces one right after another! Anybody else note that the exhaust notes were kept to a respectable rumble? Those exhausts tunes are sweet music to my ear. I wish my own Harley could sound so good!

The movie did not make me want to run home and ignite my Harley. It did put me in a road-trip mood. I would love to ride with the Wild Hogs! As long as I don't have to go swimming and as long as I can sleep in my own sleeping bag in my own tent!!
