Ripe with laughter, gags, obvious ad-libbing and a free-wheeling sense of lensing that befits the open road ride of the Wild Hogs, [Walt] Becker does another admirable job despite the film's shortcomings.
In many ways, Wild Hogs is the worst type of movie - a cynical affair that means to rob its audience by promising a romping good time it has no intention of delivering. I really think a lot of the people involved ... should be ashamed.
The movie frees you of the belief that making it in Hollywood requires finely honed skills. If the writer and director of this coarsely honed sitcom could get hired, then the studio doors must be wide open.
Walt Becker's rancid midlife-crisis "comedy" seems serenely unperturbed by the grand canyon between the least likable protagonists in recent memory and the audience-tested need to impose redemption onto them.
This isn't a movie with any meaningful insights to share about the heartfelt concerns of the over-forty set, but is rather an ill-conceived, "coming-of-age" style misadventure which could just as easily have revolved around some recent high school grads.
