  • I think this movie teaches us not to pretend to be someone we are not, to grow within our skills, and certainly not to run away from our problems

      This is a buddy film on steroids. Four middle-aged men with various problems on the home front, try to lose themselves by climbing aboard their motorcycles and tooling about. But when problems increase, Woody Stevens (John Travolta) suggests a road trip, a ride to California, to blow off steam, get away from it all, and try to figure life out. Reluctantly at first, his riding pals: Doug Madsen (Tim Allen), Bobby Davis (Martin Lawrence) and Dudley Frank (William H. Macy),

      agree to the trip.

      Things are going well on the road, with only a few minor issues, such as a gay Highway Patrolman (John C. McGinley) thinking the foursome are more than just friends, and Dudley lighting their tent on fire. It’s not until they stop at a biker bar in the middle of nowhere that things take a turn for the worse. They just want to whet their whistle, but being dressed as bikers, they come up against the real bikers at the bar, led by Jack (Ray Liotta). After losing Dudley’s bike to Jack, and being sent off in humility, Woody decides things aren’t right, so goes back for Dudley’s bike. He succeeds not only in doing this, but in blowing up the bikers’ rides, and the bar. The chase is on.

      Only Woody knows what happened, and knows the bikers are going to be coming after them. When they stop in the town of Madrid, just in time for ...

      their chili festival, all but Woody are relaxed and ready to enjoy themselves. They befriend the local law enforcement, a bumbling sheriff and his two deputies, and Dudley gets cozy with the diner’s owner, Maggie (Marisa Tomei). All seems right with the world now.

      But all comes to a head as Jack and his gang come into town, threatening its destruction if the Wild Hogs don’t show themselves. Now is the time for fight or flight. Will these four men step

      up to the plate, or subject this humble town to its destruction because of their actions?

      I think this movie teaches us not to pretend to be someone we are not, to grow within our skills, and certainly not to run away from our problems. It’s okay to get away once in a while to keep from being wound too tight, but we must eventually deal with our problems head on, because they won’t just go away on their own.
