STARRING 2000 RAZZIE® "WINNER" JOHN TRAVOLTA, 2006 RAZZIE® NOMINEE TIM ALLEN, and the OFTEN RAZZIE®-WORTHY MARTIN LAWRENCE, WILD HOGS IS JUST ANOTHER UN-FUNNY, MALE-MIDLIFE-CRISIS KNOCKOFF -- CITY SLICKERS on MOTOR-SICKLES, IF YOU WILL.

OUR ONLY QUESTION: TO WHOM DID the USUALLY EXCELLENT BILL H. MACY LOSE a BET and WIND UP IN THIS FILM???

Tim Allen: "John -- Was that the motorcycle that just backfired...or YOU?!?!?!"

These four guys are the most random selection of stars anyone could possibly think of. It's almost as if the director put the names of all middle-aged male actors into a bowl, and randomly selected these four.

This movie looks like it could be bad, but not as bad as this year's #1 worst comedy: Norbit. HeadRAZZ, You need to start a discussion board for Norbit. It is sorely missing from this Forum.

Response from Head RAZZberry: Here's a LINK to check out our new discussion of NORBIT...

I'm not sure anybody ever actually saw Norbit for the three days it was in theatres, so I would assume a forum for it would be relatively ghostly.;)

Just the straight fact that Martin Lawrence is in the film immediately disqualifies it from my viewing list. He is in my top 5 list of Actors I just will not support.

 and on another note, I kind of like Tomsmo posting Official Reviews, Its nice to have the professional opinions to discuss off of as it's fun to see just how out of touch the main stream media actually is. I mean this is a discussion forum right? I am one who personally enjoys as many veiws as possible in my discussions. and seeing what certain people get paid for writing interests me and and also leads to pretty opinionated and wild postings.

it's a shame though since Travolta truley amazed the stuff out of my pants in A Love Song For Bobby Long ( which I believe is his most brilliant and best role ever) and It is also too bad that Tim Allen hasn't been able to land more script interesting roles as he did in Dave Barry's Big Trouble. I could see him pulling in a more of an intelligent cult following that way. At first this film looked pretty interesting to say the least but after the Martin Lawrence dominated trailers I just lost all the interest I could muster.

Glad to see this film on our Discussion Forum -- I knew it would end up being a Razzie contender. I think I smell another Razzie nom for Tim Allen...

I guess when comes to Worst Screen Couple, are we going to call them all by their names on The Ballot, or should we Razz them as a group? If go to Rotten Tomatoes, you'll see that the only two Movies that had Fresh Tomatoes were Black Snake Moan & Zodiac. Wild Hogs is rated Rotten...

Although I don't care to pay to watch this film (maybe a rent or buy), the previews do look quite funny. Why are you guys making up the most random complaints about this movie? Just because it stars actors y'all don't like?! Who cares?! Rottontomatoes only has 31 reviews so far, so don't get your hopes high. I can already tell it might have some bad reviews but it could be entertaining and funny.

You can be sure that all the funny parts are in the trailer. And if you've seen the trailer, you've seen all the funny parts.

Wild Hogs is just another example of a really crappy movie, with a really crappy seen-it-before script acted by really crappy actors, (save Bill Macey.... what were you thinking Bill?).

It's still make 60 million+ because most Americans like crappy movies. And before you get all medieval on my ass for saying that "most Americans like crappy movies" I shall back up my claim with:

Norbit  - US Gross as of March 3 2007: $76,506,700
Ghost Rider - US Gross as of March 3 2007: $83,257,376

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=norbit.htm
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=ghostrider.htm

And eventhough "Wild Hogs" has a Tomatometer reading of Fresh: 12 Rotten: 70... it'll still make millions. This American phenomenon of raking in millions for steaming crap-in-a-bucket movies like this only perpetuates more steaming crap-in-a-bucket movies like this.

Which proves my point that "most Americans like crappy movies." You have to understand that Oprah's show is an hour-long commercial for the movie. That's what press junkets and appearances on TV talk shows are, a sales pitch.

Oprah would never say the movie sucks, but 73 out of 85 critics at Rotten Tomatoes do say Wild Hogs totally sucks.

So do I believe Oprah who is helping sell a product, (the movie Wild Hogs), or do I believe 73 out of 85 critics.

This is one of the rare moments I would advise to download it via BitTorrent. No one deserves to make money for that kinda crap.

If you are looking for quality entertainment try "The Illusionist," "The Departed," "Borat," "Children of Men," "Little Miss Sunshine." But, if you are looking to have an hour and a half stolen from your life, and permanent psychological damage, then go see "Wild Hogs."

I have seen Departed (I have it on DVD). I will Probably watch Borat and Little Miss Sunshine on HBO or Starz, but the other two, probably not. As for downloading, I do not feel like going Jail over Wild Hogs. I could maybe see it for free at The Theater where my Brother works. If I had to pay for a movie this weekend, I would either pay for Black Snake Moan or Zodiac...

I am anxious to see Zodiac. I hear it's very good. And it has to be better than watching yet another derivative retread full of clichés about a "mid-life crisis" featuring...... Martin Lawrence, Travolta and Tim "remember Zoom anyone?" Allen....
